LAST CHANCE for Level 2 Brisbane this year
Reclink Community Cup expands to Brisbane
The Reclink Community Cup, a much-adored charity AFL football series that pits musicians against media, finishes its inaugural national tour in Brisbane on Sunday 25 September at Pine Rivers Showgrounds, having already completed matches in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth and Hobart throughout the winter and early spring.
PINE RIVERS SHOWGROUND (GYMPIE ROAD, LAWNTON)
Sunday 25 September
Gates open at 11.30am
Tickets $10 Adults $5 Children (under 12 Free)
Live music, kid’s entertainment, food & beverage stalls and the big game!!
From humble beginnings in 1993, the Melbourne game alone now attracts more than 10,000 people and raises more than $100,000 for Reclink Australia each year.
Taking this wonderfully inclusive event national for the first time in 2016, Reclink Australia aims to create not just family friendly fun with live music and passionately-contested football, but also to raise national awareness and funds for Australia’s most disadvantaged citizens.
Reclink’s CEO John Ballis says:
“For Reclink the Community Cup is a time when the media – particularly the community radio sector – and local musicians band together to help raise much needed funds to enable us to deliver sport, recreation and arts programs that make a huge difference to lives of the neediest in our community; programs that foster self-confidence, fight isolation, develop skills, and establish connections and lasting friendships.”
Reclink Australia supports some of the community’s most vulnerable and isolated people: at risk youth, those experiencing mental illness, people with a disability, the homeless, people tackling alcohol and other drug issues and social and economic hardship.
To support this most altruistic of sporting initiatives the first Brisbane instalment of the Reclink Community Cup will incorporate family entertainment and live music – featuring the Reclink Transformers Choir (featuring Robbie James from GANGgajang), Screaming Steven & The Heathens, She Eats Hearts, 2Dogs and Scabz (Syd) – as well as food stalls and of course the big game itself.
The Brisbane event has been gifted a uniquely Queensland spin with the two competing sides being named The Rocking Horses (musicians) and the Brisbane Lines (community radio/media) featuring players from a vast array of Brisbane bands pitted against a motley ensemble of 4ZZZ stalwarts, music industry insiders, street press staff and many more music-related professions.
For Brisbane’s inaugural match the Queensland upper house members Senator Murray Watt and Senator Anthony Chisholm will don the boots for the Rocking Horses and the Brisbane Lines respectively.
Each dollar raised in the Brisbane match goes directly to Reclink Australia programs within Queensland, funding much needed participation opportunities in sports, recreation and the arts for those experiencing disadvantage.

2016 QAFA (B) Central Grand Final
Zillmere vs. UQ
Friday August 26, 7:30pm, Giffin Park, Coorparoo
By Andrew Wiles
It’s fitting that these two teams are squaring off tonight, because they have been the teams to beat all year.
Their ability to put their heads over the ball in the middle, and then spread in transition has been unrivaled.
To put it simply, this is going to be a dogfight in the middle.
They will both hope to control the stoppages, before moving the ball as swiftly as possible into the forward 50.
It was only two weeks ago these two teams played off in the first final.
That night, Zillmere got the job done thanks to an impressive performance in the guts.
It wasn’t a high scoring affair, and I don’t think this will be either. Both teams will have to earn every single goal they kick.
The Eagles are extremely good at creating space forward. They are patient when looking for that kick into the forward 50, get at the feet of their big blokes well, and their midfield run forward hard.
UQ have got to make sure they are accountable in transition.
They also can’t afford to let Dickfos set up a kick behind play. He is destructive with the footy in hand, so they have to make him accountable.
The Red Lions will probably have a ruck advantage, and they have to use it.
Out wide, they are quicker than Zillmere. If they can get first use, and feed the ball out to the wing, they are a very good chance at taking this out.
I reckon if you looked at both whiteboards of the coaches, Ben Long and Peter Rosengren pre-game, contested ball will be item number 1.
This will be a corker.
