This weekend was rural round, the ressies were asked to hit the road a little earlier and point the car toward Mt Eliza.

Arriving at Peninsula Grammar we were greeted by a great little set-up and you could actually pick up a bit of a buzz of excitement from the playing group.

Peninsula have taken some beatings this year and are yet to register a win. Nonetheless they were at home and you take a side lightly at your peril.

We started quite well, feeding the ball out to our wings regularly in space. It seemed early Steve Fremantle was going to have 100 touches.

Tackle pressure was also up with Ed Aujard leading the way here. We came into the break happy with the display and just keen to refine that ultimate kick into the forward line [33-8].

Having a number of players returning from injury, it was great to see Joel Rice, Harry Hill, Nick Morris and Cal O’Brien on the park and all were having an influence.

Joel Rice was demonstrating his class and we were keeping the scoreboard ticking along. Some way through the quarter we lost our way a bit, losing a player to a ‘card’ and then almost in sync having two players come to the sideline with injury.

Mitch Nixon and Henry McQueen Miscamble were both involved in solid collisions, where they unfortunately came off second best. On a day we were seeking to bank 4 points, injuries were our last want!

We hit the break 67-21 and were thirsty to really go on with it.

The third was a little disappointing, we were a bit wayward and were being baited into a sideshow of disputing decisions rather than getting on with hammering the scoreboard.

The mids did however; have things in control and it was good to seek players like Courtot and King getting run into the legs second game back! [3QT 97-41]

Big Fridge [Zac Lisle], who was showing a return to form, pulled the guys in at the break and challenged them to be relentless.

It looks like I might as well hand over the reins to Fridge, because whatever he said inspired a last quarter onslaught!

We were able to kick 9 goals straight, which not only secured us the win but bolstered the percentage. The % was much needed, as we are in a tight battle with Mazenod for a finals spot.

The final score was 151-50. Peninsula were much improved from last time and credit is due there.

Joel Rice (6) and Cal Cameron (5) were able to contribute 11 goals up front which was great!

We direct our attention to Parkdale next
