Player of the week

India came to chilly Melbourne last night as our next big name chef Peter Riley delivered curry with naan. The kitchen was a tense environment at times with Chef Riley barking ordering to apprentices Tess Riley and Jane Hall but the result spoke for itself - loud applause from the players.   Post meal discussion on the pecking order for Thursday meals Masterchef was very interesting and Riles has made a play for the Top Hat.

Match Reviews


Mazenod faced another big challenge on Saturday, playing away to third-placed Old Ivanhoe, but they again rose to the occasion to record a 43-point win.
Conditions for the match were good, but mid-week rain left the ground heavy. This made for a tense, physical encounter against two of the best sides in the competition. Mazenod always held the ascendency but the margin never went beyond two goals. At three-quarter time, the Nodders held an 11-point advantage.
In the final quarter, Mazenod’s superior fitness was telling as they kicked away from their opponents to record another outstanding victory.
Brad Kovac returned from injury, but hadn’t lost any of his sharpness, kicking four goals. Liam Welsford was brilliant all day and Jacob Murdock relished his promotion from the Under 19s with a very solid performance.

The Reserves continued their winning ways with a massive 108-point win over Old Ivanhoe. The win was enough to lift the Nodders into second place and sets the scene for this week’s top-of-the-table clash against Caulfield.
Goal kicking machines, Peter Rozanitis and Jimmy Egan kicked nine goals between them while ruckman Tim McDonald was BOG. Rob McCarthy was also amongst the best in his first match back after a lengthy period on the sidelines with a broken foot.

Jacob Buccella was outstanding as were Matt Sier and Aidan Brand-Oliver, who were both returning from stints in the seniors. Declan Fowler kicked three goals.
