Congratulations to the organising committee and mater of ceremonies Stewie McMullin who kept the day flowing.   To check out some of the fun check out the facebook page

Around the club

We continue to upload many photos retrieved from the Past Players and Supporters Association and our roving photographer Paddy McKenna has been taking action shots around the grounds which are also being loaded on the Photo Gallery Link on the website.  

ANZAC Day 2016
The club hosted the 2nd Field Ambulance Past Members Association and we were humbled to receive a recognition award for our support over the years in hosting returned servicemen and their families. With 4 originals from WWII in attendance it was amazing to hear some stories from their experiences in New Guinea some 70 years ago as young men.   

Thursday Night Meals
We are extremely fortunate to have received interest from a number of great supporters regarding Thursday night meals. This Thursday Robyn Riley, Jane Hall and Christine Boyle have volunteered to cook for the boys with a chicken and mushroom bake. As we have 18 weeks to cover we would love to hear from anyone that can assist with cooking for 60 hungry players for 1 night of the year so we can spread the load.

Huge thanks to our community for your support on the club in 2016. It is not too late to join up and show your support and become a club member. If you want to join the Mazenodians please contact Wayne Francis ( / 0447 252 845). The mazenodian lunch will be held in the second half of the season and details TBA.

Match Reviews
Prior to Saturday’s game, Mazenod had not faced Kew for at least 25 years, but the Nodders knew enough to recognise them as a threat. Kew have stormed through the grades winning three consecutive premierships and their early season form marked them as contenders once again. Mazenod was ready and brought the intensity that has already become a hallmark in season 2016.
The Nodders jumped Kew early, quickly taking a four-goal lead and holding it until quarter-time. Tim Bourbon was back to his best after a year out of the game while fellow veteran, Stu Ingliss was providing plenty of grunt through the middle.
The second was a stalemate with neither side scoring a goal, but game went up a notch after the break. Kew brought the margin back to 19 points mid-way through the third, but the Nodders settled and pushed the margin past five goals by the final change. Youngsters Xavier Patti and Jaydyn Hill were largely responsible for steadying the ship in a pleasing sign for coach, Ben Phibbs, who gave both plenty of responsibility in key positions.
Mazenod didn’t relent in the last, although two late goals to Kew brought the final margin back to 32 points. Tom Cincotta was the star again, kicking five goals to add to his four from last week.
