The young Eagles played some good football considering the conditions. Ruckman Daniel Browning showed everyone how to not only win the ruck duals but to also do it effectively. He covered plenty of the ground, gathering many valuable possessions. Hayden Bielleman got back to his best with a great display. Ever-reliable Brayden Chaplin showed why he is one of the best defenders in the league, racking many possessions down back. Nathan wakefield, Josh Raspin and Nick Wakefield put in four great quarters. The Eagles have one more roster match before finals and coach Josh Clifford is doing an excellent job with his young charges. They have a great feeling for each other and are a close-knit team. Well done to Brett Hodge for being selected and playing for the New Norfolk senior team against the Central Hawks at Oatlands last Saturday. He played again on Sunday with the Under 15s and was very good all around the ground. This weekend Mitchell Booth will play his 50th game. A big thank you to the mums from the Under 15s who helped Chris Lovell and David Banks with the canteen not only last weekend but also for a few weeks back.
