Tuesday Talking Points

Faulks hits the ton

If you think about the superstars that have made Mayne a juggernaut over the last few years, Luke Faulkner’s name is right up there.

On Saturday, he celebrated game 100 in the yellow and black in the best way possible. Not only did the team continue their resurgence with a win over Caloundra, but he hit the scoreboard with two important goals in the last quarter. In terms of the calibre of 100 games, there wouldn’t be too many better in the sunshine state.



Pink Panthers

On Saturday, Morningisde held a breast cancer fundraiser, with Pink Panther day. The Colts and Reserves donned pink socks, and the seniors wore a commemorative strip, as a huge turnout at Jack Esplen Oval was treated to three wins from three games. As you can tell by the photos, looks like everyone had a great day out.














For the first time ever on Saturday, Fisherman’s Road played host to all five senior Maroochydore sides. That means the QFA Sunshine Coast team, the Colts, the QFA Reserves and Seniors, and the QWAFA side all ran out at the same venue on the same day. That’s a special occasion in itself… but to come away with five wins means it’ll go down in the history books. Well played, Roos



We know Tassie is cold this time of year, – you only had to watch the North Melbourne vs. Richmond game last week to see that.

But that was at night, and I don’t think our Queensland Under 17 and 16 kids were expecting to play in 3 degrees on Saturday! Fair to say the queue for the hot shower after the games was as hotly contented as the footy during the game.

He’s coming. Fevalinko, the Fevolution, whatever you want to call him, Brendan Fevola is coming to play community footy in South East Queensland, and he will be back in blue. Fev will line up for Coolangatta in their QFA South game against Coorparoo in a standalone game on Sunday June 26. The real question is …. how many will he kick?
