Tuesday Talking Points


14 goals is nothing short of a day out, but its nothing unusual for Cody Filewood. For the second time this year, he has bagged 14 majors for the Surfers Paradise reserves. That’s 28 over two games. It takes his average for the year in that team to 7.67 per game.

On the eve of the finals, the timing to put your hand up again for senior selection is perfect. I think he will be unleashed this week… watch this space.



Family affair

To say the Orr family live and breathe football would be an understatement. Dad, Murray, and his two sons Darcy and Will have all played together in the Northern Beaches Suns reserves team this year, but it definitely doesn’t stop there. Mum, Katrina, is a goal umpire, the two boys also umpire before or after their game, and Murray doubles up in the Masters competition. I think it’s fair to say they love their footy.




Two games, two draws

Mt Gravatt and Wilston Grange have played two games in the QAFL seniors this year, and neither team has won a game. Yep that’s right, two games, and two draws. I certainly haven’t heard or can find anything to suggest this has ever happened before; rare as hen’s teeth. It was an unbelievable way to finish the home and away season off.




Sandgate had a special guest on Tuesday night at training. AFL Queensland Academy and High Performance Coach, Adrian Fletcher, headed on over to Lemke Road to put the Hawks’ senior team through their paces… and it must have worked. Sandgate capped of their season in the best possible way on Saturday, knocking off Morningside for the first time in over 30 years.



One to go in the QWAFL

With one round to go, Kalinda Howarth has made her move in the QWAFL goal kicking, but it’s going to come down to the wire. She kicked four in Coolangatta’s win over UQ on the weekend, but Tayla Harris kept the race wide open with two of her own. The advantage Howarth holds is two goals. You would think two or three next to her name this weekend could do it, but we know that Harris is more than capable of kicking a bag. With Zillmere and Coolangatta playing each other this weekend, the first game of the triple-header at Yeronga, they will both know what needs to be done going into the last quarter.
