Belted down at Kingswood, players were calling for the siren so i blew the car horn, they didn't fall for it but all had a good laugh.

My lad reckons the hail hurt like anything when it hit him

The electronic scoreboard at uni was particularly cruel. It started and you could see there were 4 long minutes left (particularly when you're getting done by 20 goals)

Well Saturday was the end of our season, our first ever season with a D grade.
We had an unprecedented hit on injuries for most of the season which meant we had to call on our backups which were a few guys from Gawler Districts Super Rules and some Under 16s.
Even then we had to battle with 15-16 blokes at some stages.

But I couldnt be prouder of the efforts all my players put in during the year. Competing as a Div 6 D grade against mostly Div 1/2 D grades was always going to be tough but each game the boys fought on and were always more competitive than the scorelines showed.

I set some KPIs at the start of the season and I am proud we met all of them.
- Never Scoreless
- Win a game
- Never Forfeit

In a season where disapointingly we had 2 teams pull out, it resolved us to try even harder to get the side up every week, not just for us but for all the other teams in C6. It took me a lot of my friday nights and sat mornings hustling for players but we got there!

I wish all the teams in the finals all the best and may the best team win.

Was very impressed with the way Elizabeth and Mawson Lakes carried themselves in circumstances where it may have been easier to pull the pin at times. A credit to those clubs and the people involved
