    I think Inverleigh have to fall away after losing a couple of guns and by the sound of it not doing a huge amount of recruiting, North Geelong and Bannockburn both had abberations in their years last year, expect both to perform more strongly this year and I think Belmont should continue their improvement and challenge for 5th with their recruits.

    IMO East very good odds at 5.5 - Considering only lost 2-3 from Senior side but handy pick ups through GFL and returning players..

    Mark Williams has signed for 2 years at Ballan . He was pictured today in a Ballan jumper in the Ballarat Courier.

    Great Coup for that club!

    Hi, Can anyone give me some infomation on James Hobbs played at North Shore?? He has put a clearance into my club in Gippsland, Heyfield.

    Is he tall/small?? Defender/Midfielder/Forward?? Play/Not play??

    I looked at sportingpulse but it doesnt really give you an indication as to the type of player as you dont know if players train etc or where they played.

    Thanks in advance

    Small defender, very good overhead, foot skill are good/OK.

    Pretty tough, smart footballer.

    Came 2nd or 3rd in Bannockburns B and F a few years back when they made finals.

    Hasnt had a proper season in a couple of seasons because of work.

    Good fella.

    Yeah, corio game has been shifted due to the redevelopment of there clubrooms not being completed.

    Corio by 40. Winch in trouble this year
    Weribee by 18. Gaps been closed with the departure of the twin talls (Grgic jovanich)
    Inverleigh by 30. The loss of peel may hurt but kept most of young core group
    East by 50. East added a bit more quality and will be a force again this year.
    Thomson by 40. Will Thomson be competitive with the teams Above them more the question.
    Anakie by 70. New coach new discipline or same old for the Roos? Hopefully Geelong west can prove a few doubters wrong

    I don't think anybody would've predicted north to beat east. Were east missing a few players or has north stepped up a gear?
    I would think werribee would be dissapointed with the result. Going by the quarter by quarter scores it looks as though the panthers superior fitness got them over the line just as it did numerous times last year. The small size of galvin park may hurt the centrals again this year as they seem to struggle on the bigger grounds and you don't get any bigger than st albans.
    Good performance by banno to get up.
    Anakie v west went to script.
    Corio won the game as expected although had to do it from behind against winch.

    It was a great rd 1 and rd 2 should be a cracker. I think the GDFL should look at doing the fixture like the GFL. In the GDFL its a rolling draw. In the GFL the lower teams play each other twice and the top teams playing each other twice.
    Rd 2 games
    Anakie v thomson. looking forward to this game I think anakie will push for finals. great test for the roos
    Winch v west. 2 teams that would be looking for a early win
    werribee v east. both teams looking to bounce back. The loser of this game may have some question marks over there heads
    Nth v Inver. Nth was the big shock from rd 1
    Banno v corio. both had wins in rd 1
    Belmont v bph. good test for belmont

    Centrals result was suprising, esp on past players day. would have been uncomfortable in the rooms afterwards...

    thomson v BPH will be a belter this week...

    Certainly would have. Couldn't quite believe the margin when I was told on the Sunday. I wouldn't write the Centurions off just yet.

    According to one of their key players this is the apparently the best team Werribee have assembled ever. That's a pretty big wrap so it will be interesting to see how they respond.

    It's fair to say belting up on the middle of the table and bottom teams wont cut it; they'll look forward to meeting BPH and East again later in the year.
