Game 100 was a long time coming for Mt Gravatt’s Troy Moncur on the weekend, but he certainly made the most of it. Moncur, a member of Mt Gravatt’s 2002 premiership side, returned to Dittmer Park this year after a stint down in Country Victoria, and it hasn’t taken him long to find his feet. He booted eight majors in the Vultures win on Saturday, turning the game on its head early. The big fella was in fine form, and deservingly got chaired off the ground.

Is there anything she can’t do? Tayla Harris was back at it again on Saturday with a MASSIVE hanger in Zillmere’s QWAFL game against Coorparoo. It’s a sight that should put a smile on the faces of Brisbane Lions’ fans, after Harris created history as the first women’s player to sign at the Brisbane Lions last week.
It seems the big forward kicking a bag was back in vogue in the QFA South on the weekend. Yeronga’s Glenn Boyd kicked 13, Springwood’s Mark Thompson bagged 11, and Bond’s Ben Merret jagged nine. 33 goals between three forwards is every defenders nightmare. Could be a few waking up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night in the lead up to playing one of those teams.
They might have fallen just short against the Magpies in the QAFL on Saturday, but Labrador’s day as a whole should be celebrated. The Tigers hosted a supporters function, as well as donning a special strip, that had a blue outline around the yellow stripe, to raise money for Beyond Blue. Very good work, Tigers.
Player’s reputations are defined by how they play in big games, and our AIS Academy boys are standing up when it counts. Jack Bowes, Jack Rolls, Brad Scheer and Jacob Allison were Queensland’s four best in their win over NT on Saturday, all with a case of leather poisoning, and all hitting the scoreboard. Priming themselves beautifully for the Allies team later in the year.
