Which Cousin ?

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Two Riewoldts are playing tonight . Jack Riewoldt , the  Richmond Tigers exciting young goal kicker , is playing against his cousin Nick 's  , St Kilda Saints team .

Each , will be playing at different ends of the football ground . Both , are hoping to play in a winning team , and to kick  goals .

The Saints Riewoldt  , captain of the St Kilda team , has had a difficult summer , being exposed for allegedly indulging in inappropriate behaviour  . St Kilda's one point loss to the Geelong Cats , last week , was not the season starter the Saints were hoping for .

Conversely , the Tiger's ,  Jack Riewoldt has had a good summer , lost some weight and gained some muscle , and looks set to continue his goal kicking form of the first round , when he kicked 6 goals .

Both teams were robbed of victory in Round One , and will be hoping to avenge the loss of last week , and post their first victory , of the 2011 AFL Home and Away Season .

Which team will be successful on the night ? And which Riewoldt will kick the most goals ?

When not to Wear Clash Football Jumpers ?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The Gold Coast Suns make their debut this weekend, playing Carlton on saturday night , at the Gabba . New team , flash footy jumpers , big name stars , a refurbished ground , and a match against a popular Victorian AFL team , offers great entertainment , for footy fans .



A team not wanting to adopt a new footy jumper,  are the North Melbourne Kangaroos . They will wear their traditional striped home jumper , in the game against Collingwood Magpies, at the weekend .  As the home team, this is their  choice  , and they are opposing the Magpies , who refuse to adopt a clash strip . Confusion for all , or a clever marketing ploy ? Traditional jumpers , to be worn in a match , to be held at the traditional Saturday afternoon footy game time of 2.10pm.

Historic Grand Final Replay

Friday, October 1st, 2010

On the eve , of the Grand Final Replay, Collingwood Magpies and St Kilda Saints , are preparing for another closely contested match .

The Saints , still considered the underdogs , will play with an unchanged line up from last week , with the exception of injured ruckman Michael Gardiner who is replaced by Ben Mc Evoy .

Collingwood, have dropped mercurial Leon Davis , and replaced him with Tyson Goldsack .

Collingwood Fans , turned out in their  thousands,  to again watch friday training, at Goschs Paddock .

A feeling of deju vu , for both clubs tomorrow,  as they again take to the big stage of the MCG , to try and win the 2010 premiership.

Much has been written in the press , and televised in the media , about last weeks Game . More will be written after tomorrows clash .

Side issues have muddied the waters , eg Hird to coach Essendon , Ablett will be a GC Sun 2011 , and Bomber Thompson set to leave the Cats.

This week the Saints have dared to dream . Collingwood are not appearing as invincible as last week . Even the Magpies have stopped swooping the canine population in the local park .

The victor will be decided on Saturday , 2nd October .

Fans , will be watching wearing their team colours jumper , jersey , guernsey.

Can Saints have an historic Win ?
