Cheers Robbo, very pleased with that as a first-up result!
Some interesting news in the aftermath of last night’s practice match at Ikon Park
When game started at 3:45 temp was 35.6 degrees
by Quarter Time temp was 36.1 degrees under AFL Victoria own guidelines once temp reaches 36 degrees play should have been halted and given temp stayed at 36 or just above until at least 8pm last night the game should have been cancelled at that point
Here you go.. A full replay with commentary!
Thanks to StationHotel
I wondered if De Koning is the son of Terry De Koning who played in the VFA/VFL for Camberwell in the late 80s?
Definately Terry's son North Port,playeda few years at Footscray under Royce Hart before going to Vfa.
Yeah fair point Robbo. Perhaps when the hot forecast came through the game should have been moved to a later time (which would have meant a different venue). This would have also suited the part time port players who had to take time off work to play.
