There is a little bit of history between Toby Pinwill and Box Hill Hawks.
In the past decade Pinwill’s Port Melbourne and the Hawks have played out a series of enthralling matches, in home-and-away rounds and especially finals.
If Borough video man Cameron Towson was to cut a compilation disc of them, he would have much material at his disposal; nothing in the VFL rivals the recent Port Melbourne-Box Hill Hawks rivalry.
Pinwill has been at the heart of the battles, brick-hard in his approach and often among the best players on the ground.
The Box Hill president, Tony Pinwill, has presumably been impressed by the Port No 10. Tony is Toby’s uncle. He’s always pleased to see his nephew have a good day, but he’s happier still when the Hawks can squawk about victory.
