Lochie Dawson got a clearance from his Ballarat team to play for Hamilton against Portland in the Hampden league Anzac Day game. Won the best on ground/Ted Kenna VC Medal.

Still doubt he gets a game at all this season, unless the injuries at senior level really pile up.

So Sweet banned and Trengove and English playing seniors- I guess Boyd to first ruck. Will be a good read on how fit he's stayed.

Fifth or sixth best in the state apparently, based on interleague rankings. Hamilton is one of the weaker sides in the league though.
The inter league rankings are unreliable so it might be stronger or weaker than that. Its a nice comp but it doesn't really mirror up because of how it is done - which is fair because the clubs are more interested in winning their actual leagues.

I don't even think the EDFL are on the latest rankings but they are the clear number 2 metro league behind the EFL.

Schache is putrid. Hope we don't bring him back any time soon. Feel bad for the Footscray boys having to play with Boyd and Schache as their talls.

It’s almost comical that Boyd and Schache were drafted 1 & 2. If it was another club other than ours :-(. It makes one consider that if you’re going to draft a big man , the first thing you need to look for is a healthy dose of mongrel aggression.

Is there a mid season draft? I don’t follow these things closely . That William fella please

At least we didn't pay 1 or 2!


Didn't see the game, what's the go with Lynch. I was one who thought he wouldn't make it but was impressed last year. We are desperate for pace and good users. What's the go?

Lynch did a few nice things and kicked a goal with hard running in the last quarter. Don't really think he was prominent enough though to get picked for AFL.
