You’ve been warned
Bond University has sent an early warning to its QAFA (A) opponents for 2015. The 2014 QAFA (B) South Premiers played some scintillating football in Saturdays Pool D Alpha Sport Pre-Season Cup grand final, using their leg speed to break the game open. Their six-goal to nil first quarter against Pine Rivers, last years QAFA (A) grand finalists, was set up through quick ball movement and pure pace. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the kids can run. Don’t expect a premiership hangover from the Sharks.
The cupboard is getting full
Morningside’s trophy cabinet must be getting close to capacity after their last 12 months. Their victory on Saturday ensured that they go into the 2015 season as the team to beat. It was a dominant display on Saturday, as they withstood a ferocious Broadbeach attack early on in the game before running out 53-point winners.
The Yeronga Devils played a very distinct brand of football over the weekend, and boy was it effective. Their free flowing style of play meant the game against Caloundra was played at a cracking pace. They took the game on through the middle and got it into their forward line as quickly as they possibly could, letting their forwards do the work in the air. If the Devils can open up the game like they did on Saturday when the season proper rolls around, they will be a team to keep a very close eye on.
Fresh faced Cats
It was a new look Broadbeach that took on Morningside on the weekend. Half the team that ran out in the blue and white were are new to the club for 2015. Although they were beaten, it is only their second game together as a group. As the voices become more familiar, they get to know each other’s game, and the get a bit tighter as a unit, expect a formidable Broadbeach lineup.
That’s all, folks
When the final sire rang out on Saturday, it signaled curtains to the 2015 pre-season. Months of hard work, blood, sweat and tears to ensure each player is in optimum condition fitness wise for round 1 is over, and that means one thing, it’s time for the real stuff. Round one of the QAFL is now just 11 days away, not that anyone is counting…
