Tuesday Talking Points

Video of the round

Indigenous Round was celebrated in all manner of ways over the weekend. One of the highlights would have to be the smoke ceremony prior to the game at Lowe Oval, between Coorparoo and Springwood. The Pumas ended up winning a close one, 108 to 95. Thanks to Darren Allie for the video.

QWFA photo of the week

This week’s goal umpire for Coorparoo/Yeronga against Gympie was paralympian Matthew Cameron. Great to see the 31-year-old T54 wheelchair racer and bronze medalist helping out at the footy.




Mayne games record to fall

Tigers legend Andrew Housego is set to topple the Mayne all time games record this weekend, after equaling the 281 game milestone with Albert Hadwen last week. The record will fall, conveniently in conjunction with the club’s 90-year anniversary of their first premiership in 1927 and the awarding of the Mick Nolan Medal.



Hipwood’s highlight reel

Caloundra product and AFL Sunshine Coast Junior Ambassador Eric Hipwood added another couple of highlights to a growing reel of spectacular moments against Collingwood on Sunday. After the exciting display, Eric has been nominated for both the goal and mark of the year, from a single game of footy. Not bad.



Zillmere shout-outs continue

Adelaide’s Eddie Betts, as well as Richmond teammates Shane Edwards and Daniel Rioli have voiced their support so far. More encouragement might be on the horizon, now that the Eagles have started their video shout-out competition. Details below.





Talking talent

Sunday saw trial matches played between the Allies, Vic Country and Vic Metro, in preparation for the NAB AFL Under 18 National Championships. A number of Queenslanders impressed for the Allies at Ikon Park, including Lions Academy prospect Jack Clayton who played well across half forward. Highly rated Gold Coast Academy player Brodie Foster was damaging at half back and developing ruck talent Brayden Crossley pushed forward, kicking two goals.
