  1. This is from a few days ago but things move quickly in Covid19 times so it might no longer apply now that we’re in a state of disaster. Country AFL draft hopefuls are getting an edge over city players

  3. Eleven in a row! Round 15, 1964 Melbourne vs St. Kilda Saturday 1 August Venue: MCG Attendance: 33,212 B Crompton Massey Tas Johnson HB Anderson Roet McLean C Dixon H Mann Adams HF Vagg Groom Kenneally F Jacobs Bourke Emselle Foll Wise Barassi Rov Townsend 19/20 Leitch Watson Melbourne’s winning streak continued to 11 games on end when it brushed aside St Kilda by three goals in the wet on the MCG despite a scoreless final quarter. The win meant that the Demons had beaten every other team in the competition since their fourth round defeat at the hands of the Saints. The opening quarter was all Melbourne with the home side playing tough, dry weather football to keep their opposition scoreless at the first break when they led by 23 points. The Demons had a winning centre line of experienced wingmen Brian Dixon and Frank “Bluey” Adams with Hassa Mann dominant in the centre and the team maintained the ascendency through to three quarter time. The blanketing of the Saints’ star centre half forward Darrel Baldock was instrumental in establishing a 34 point lead at three quarter time. With a big lead and the damp conditions and heavy ball making scoring difficult, Melbourne switched off and failed to score in the final term. The Saints were inspired by ruckman Carl Ditterich but only managed two goals while the Demons were held scoreless. It was the second, and to date last, time in league history that Melbourne have gone scoreless in a last quarter and still won. Melbourne 3.5.23 6.5.41 8.7.55 8.7.55 St. Kilda 0.0.0 2.2.14 3.3.21 5.7.37 Goals Bourke 3 Jacobs H Mann 2 Barassi Best H Mann Dixon Barassi Adams Jacobs Keneally Reserves Melbourne 8.20.68 defeated St Kilda 7.8.50 Goals Andrew Vearing 2 Carlson Mounter Slade Zinko Best Bartlett Zinko Davis Under 19s Melbourne 6.9.45 defeated St Kilda 4.8.32 Goals Schultz 3 Lockwood Minton-Connell Osborne Best Millard Griffiths Lockwood
  4. Time in forward half - Melbourne 55% Port Adelaide 45%
  5. This is one of those teams that constantly seems to be a thorn in our side. It’s time to make a statement and to bloody their noses (metaphorically of course).
  6. No surprise that Harley’s being rested and Nev needs the break too.
  7. That story has to come out one day.
  8. The Casey game? Please explain.
  9. I always blamed it on our shocking kicking for goal.
  10. No time to waste here. We play Port Adelaide on Thursday and the teams will be selected soon.

  11. The answer is plain and clear. Total domination in the hit outs but destroyed in the clearances. It’s all good when you’re winning in the ruck and that advantage is taken by your team but from the beginning their midfield dominated ours and we couldn’t withstand the pressure. We had to change tack from early in the second quarter when it was starting to hurt us everywhere but on the scoreboard. A slight adjustment at that time and we win the game.
  12. Double the number of hit outs but they lead the clearances by 27 to 19 at 3/4 time. That’s where we’re getting beaten.
  13. Club has issued vision of the heavens opening up over the ground. Apparently, 100.2mm of rain fell at the Gold Coast Seaway to 9am Sunday morning. This was the highest daily July rain for the station since 2005.
