According to Footy Forensics Coorparoo haven’t played against Mayne at the top level, since late in the 1993 season. The Kings and the Tigers will go against each other for the first time in 24 years, at the Mayne Mott Street Oval on Saturday.
These two sides had a great rivalry throughout the 60’s, a time in which they played five grand finals against each other. The Kings won three flags, while Mayne took the honors on two occasions. Back in the day, these games were played at the Gabba in front of some massive crowds.
As the old saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining and the Zillmere QWAFL side found theirs over the weekend. Scoring their first goal since round two.
Live blog of the moment:
Former AFL player Brent Moloney had an interesting game for the Gorillas against Mt Gravatt in the QAFL on the weekend. In a puzzling move, the former Melbourne Demon and Brisbane Lion, wore some Nike sneakers. It begs the question if the former AFL star just forgot his boots, or he has some leg soreness.
Rep footy madness
The QAFL representative side will play against the WAAFL (WA Amateurs) on Sunday, as part of a double header in which the Under 23 women’s state side will play their second of two games against West Australia. The games will be played at Broadbeach’s Ord Minett Oval.
