    Agree, most teams wouldn't be fielding anything near their full list, 7 weeks until round one

    Give me a spell twinkle toes, they're amateurs who need to get through a full season and more importantly stay motivated, im sure they are keen to be playing now but what about in June/July!

    I don't disagree with you, I think starting in October is way too early and even November is a bit of a stretch for this level of footy. I just noticed your last couple of posts were pretty scathing of clubs imitating elite afl methods.

    Sandgate by a couple of goals in the Ressies and about 5 in the Seniors. both teams undermanned but a good hitout. Nothing in in it till the last 10 minutes when Sangates stronger fitness showed and they kicked the last 5

    Sounds like a good hit out for both sides then...I know Springwood have a function tonight, so it wasn't a full game plus time on. Positive signs for both?

    Yep definitely good signs for both teams. Don't know too much about the Hawks guys but some impressive showings from some of Springwoods new and younger players. No not a full game, way too hot for that!!

    Glad to hear - my mail is hawks were missing a few, as were the Pumas. Not sure if they were top end talent or not. Certainly a step up for Sandgate from their game last week. I know a few on this forum have been critical of their practice match schedule - I hear they were going to play Aspley QFA (North) but they were unable to field 2 x teams. Congrats to Springwood to put 2 sides together at short notice...

    4 or 5 doubled up but all up I think there were 40ish guys turn up, and with about a dozen or so unavailable yes the Pumas numbers are pretty good for this time of the year, certainly better than last year when a lot of Colts boys were required to help out. The depth of quality of all these guys we'll find out over the next few months. Yes I believe that there was a fair bit of top end quality missing from Sandgate too, not sure who, like I said I don't know enough about them, that's just what I overheard at the game.

    Few mixed results yesterday. Does anyone know what sort of sides were rolled out? Yeronga v Aspley very one-sided by all reports. Springwood v Mayne sounds like it was a cracker...many inclusions for the side that played Sandgate last week?

    Didn't see the game unfortunately but I do know Springwood were well down in personnel again (about 8 of their best 22 unavailable) but I wouldn't think that Mayne would have been at full strength either. A close but pretty scrappy affair by all reports, Mayne having 11 more scoring shots could have won by plenty more so it would appear that they were stronger on the day. Interestingly not one QFA Southside club beat a QFA Northside club, Mayne beat Springwood, Aspley beat Yeronga, Moreton Bay beat Alex Hills and Caloundra beat Wynnum (although Wynnum aren't a QFA side they are South technically). I wonder if that says anything about the comparative strengths of the 2 comps or was it just the way footy goes sometimes.

    Wynnum will be near the bottom of QAFA A. They will have losses of that size in their own division

    Korey Fulton is back for more, almost guarantees Robina some GF heartbreak - it's his specialty!

    Yes I see that ,,, played last season a number of games down in a minor league in victoria and averaged some 4 goals a game .
    The guy is some 38 or 39 years of age ..... unreal .. will most likely bag 60 to 70 plus goals this year.
    Ive followed his career and to my calculations he must of kicked some 1150 to 1200 goals in his career,,,, a amazing effort ,,,

    Gun player, I reckon he must be 40 or close to it.

    Agree he will kick 60+ if he stays on the park.

    One position on the ground where you can get away playing until you are 45 depending on the level and of course how relatively fit you want to be. Most coaches couldnt give a stuff if you are 6 kegs overweight and cant chase down your direct opponent if you average 6 every week!

    He's not 45 either Stuy.....
    I wasnt talking about him specifically but just stating that FF is the one position on the round that you can get away with being a fat bastard if you are indeed good enough and the standard is about "right". Age matters not for this position imo and if Fulton wanted to play until he was 45 he probably could at this level bc he is obviously still reaasonably fit (tanks Stuy) and smarts dont diminish and pace is not relevant if you can use your body or know where to run. Plus a guy who kicks straight invariably always kicks straight..

    Yeah, agree where you are coming from,, Fults is no big tall full forward,,, is about 5 10 plus and of a good physical build ,,, I just take my hat off to him for what he has achieved in his individual career . Is a great record for what one would call a small full forward !!!

    If he dropped back to an Ammo A club like Cararra or similar, he could play till he is 50 and kick another 1000
