The Wheat is starting to spread from the chaff as the ladder start to take shape nearing the half way point of the comp. Surprise Chaff has been the once mighty St.Michaels Boys who, like Geelong seem to be on the down slope of the bell curve. Also on the wain in Div 1 is Ringwood North Thunder. Trevs boys after winning 3 P'ships in a row look to be struggling.
On the Flip side it looks like the Sunday training session are paying off for the Scraggers with the Big Dogz and the Smackoz both at the top of the table. Good to see the Ashy boys firing up with both their 1st and 2nd Division teams near the top of the table. New Comers the Pretenders might have something to say about that as they look a class above in their 2nd Div matches so far. Good to see Dave Allen's Glen Waverley Rovers Topping the table of 3rd Div, obviously reaping the benefits of 3 seasons experience.
I hope all teams are enjoying the social atmosphere of R40 AFL9s regardless of ladder positions and look fwd to the rest of the season.
As you all know we have a bye this Monday night due to the Melbourne cup long weekend. Round 5 commences on the 10th of November so check your fixtures. 2nd Div remember to check if you are at Wesley or Basil reserve as your teams rotate through both. Please check fixtures through the Website or the App as previous spreadsheet correspondence may be incorrect.
R40 Upcoming Events
Rd 5 After match Event
In round 5 we are keen for everyone to stay for a meal and a chat after their games. We have asked for the kitchen to stay open a little later to cater for our players. We are hoping Wesley teams can also make it back for the event as well to enjoy the social atmosphere. Could all players please indicate to their respective captains if they will be attending so we can gauge numbers for the Kitchen. Families and past players welcome.
Xmas Finals Event
Any one who played last year will realise how big this event is. Once again we will endeavour to play all finals at Wesley so we can get all teams at one Venue. This day is just as much about the family as it is finals. Once again Santa will be there for the kids the sausage sizzle will be on again and throw in a couple of jumping castles, face painters and mascots and all are happy. The Bar will be open for the Adults in the Pavilion..... Keeping them happy. Once again as it gets closer we would ask that players tell their captains if they're family are coming for catering purposes.
Non Contact Social Competition
The heading says it all, this is what Roaring 40s strive for each week. Please don't forget that we are out on the field to get some exercise and have some fun. We're not playing for sheep stations, so if you find yourself getting a little worked up remember what your here for. Umpires reported a good round this week with contact kept to a minimum, so I think the message is getting through, good work men.
See you all on the 10th...... don't for get the after match and above all "watch your Contact".
