The annual Legends Game , was played last Tuesday night at Etihad Stadium . The Big V , who were gamely captained by ‘ Kouta ‘ , retired Carlton superstar , and shambolically coached by Sam Newman , ex -Â Geelong Ruckman , snatched victory from the jaws of defeat .
25,000 fans , were treated to a night of on and off field entertainment , when the greats pulled on the boots , and thundered onto Etihad Stadium.
Rocca, kicked the Sherrin out of the Ground , Martyn’s defence was watertight, and Straunchie scrounged the packs .The AllStars , who are the show pony’s of the competition , razzled , dazzled , and tried to steal the game with goal sneakÂ Fitzy’s , kick after the siren .
The mighty Vics remained staunch , and proved again , when push comes to shove they’ve still got what it takes . Sure , bigger size footy jumpers were worn, Â and the footy shorts waistbands have expanded , plus there is an explosion of bald heads on the ground , but Victoria proved why it’s still the birthplace , and spiritual home of AFL Footy.
It was a win all round , as fans wearing their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , enjoyed the spectacle , and gave funds to the EJ Whitten Foundation, who support people with cancer. Ted, wouldv’e been thrilled as the Vics , managed to “Stick it up ’em”.
