Do we still have a NEAFL thread? Can't find it.
Live stream on now for anyone interested..

Clay Cameron kicked the first against us.
Sounds windy as hell.

Also looks like Elie Goulding is the umpire, she must be a reserve for the main game.

This is the Connor Nutting experience. Good last week.

1 kick (a behind from 5m out directly in front with no one in front of him) his only disposal for the half
Playing as a forward in a side that had 16 scoring shots and is leading by 34 points at half time.

Suns up against Redland at half time.

Lemmens first game back. Looks like an AFL player playing NEAFL and should be back in the 1s pretty soon. This standard of comp makes him look like Harley Bennell. Evades traffic easily and accelerates past most.

Caleb Graham looking the best I've ever seen him. Probably projecting to be a Rory Thompson type, which is certainly not too bad and something we need. Just a really dour lock down key defender that doesn't give him man any space. Rarely beaten.

Mitch Riordan is BoG so far. He's given away a few frees with rough or high tackles but worked really well at the immediate coalface for the first quarter and a half. Second half of the second quarter he ripped the game apart during a 10 min stanza. Seemed to get more of it on the outside and set up what should have been two goals (easy misses from his teammates) and kicked one himself where he stepped through two guys from 40 meters out and kicked it around his body. Clearly AFL quality player. Don't know when he will debut but probably some time this year. Seems to have really good anticipation, having cut off a few handball chains and taken a few intercept marks where he came from no-where. Playing 100% mid.

Aaron Young just doing what he needs to in order to get through. Feels like he's in second or third gear and still dominating when he gets near it. Probably not far off from being 1s ready either. Just needs to build fitness. Transitioning well to help out his teammates on defence which is nice to see.

The rest aren't really pushing for selection IMO.

Looks like Young hurt his knee that was really heavily strapped. Came off early in the fourth quarter and hasn't returned.

Young back out there.
I believe he came back from the first episode around 2-3 minutes mark. But the second one 5 min ago looks more serious. Not out there.
Yep, ice on his troublesome knee, limping to shake hands.

It could be his last game for Suns.
