ALAN SCHUBACK PICKS 6


Only one tipster Alan Schuback an avid Sandringham fan from the old Can Hill days of Alfie Beus selected 6 winners, therefore collects $30. He can now buy a few cans and sink a few at the can Hill end of Trevor Barker Oval. Another $30 will go to the tipster who selects 6 winners in Round 6. If more than one tipster selects 6 it will go to the tipster nearest the aggregate score for the Box Hill v Northern Bullants clash (ABC match of the day). If no tipster selects 6 winners it will jackpot to the following week.

TWO TIPSTERS SHARE AGGREGATE SCORE

Two tipsters Carmine 'Mudassar Nazar' Miranda an old Dandenong Red legs supporter in the days of Herman Van De Beek and Eddie Melai shares the aggregate score with Rick Woodstock who is on the Coburg bandwagon as he is a Richmond supporter. Pity the poor tigers after the flogging Geelong gave them. Each collect $20 each. By the way Mudassar is also a Richmond supporter.

The next aigrette score will be the Round 7 match between Tasmania v Coburg at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

EIGHT EQUAL LEADERS- TIGHT AT THE TOP


Alan Schuback courtesy of his 6 winners shares the lead with Alex Boyke, seagull/zebra Blackrocker Doug Newington, Geelong and old Geelong West fan Brett Gillett, Taswegian Gavin Inglis, old red leg Mudassar, novice Olga Starks and old Oakleigh fan Peter 'Willo' Williamson who wore a duffle coat with John Cunningham on it.

Dolphins lack punch

From Frankston Standard Leader

THE Dolphins had a dip, but reigning premiers Sandringham refused to buckle.


After quelling Frankston's final quarter tilt, Sandy steadied to record a 24-point win in front of a good crowd at Frankston.

Bolstered by a bunch of Melbourne-listed players, the Zebras had a bit too much polish for the never-say-die Dolphins.   It was Sandringham's fifth straight win.

Frankston coach Brett Lovett said the Dolphins were lively but lacked a knockout punch.

``We're certainly not into good efforts any more down here,'' he said.   ``I thought we had our opportunities throughout the day but just failed to hurt them when we were going forward, particularly in the second quarter when I felt we had control of the play and we weren't able to hit targets across half forward or finish off with goals.''

Apart from the opening quarter when Frankston got off to a flier when Aaron Murray booted three goals in the opening 10 minutes, none of the Dolphins' ``bigs'' fired.

 Instead, if was left to livewires Justin Berry and Ricky Morris to kick a winning score. They were gallant, but they needed support. 

 

Casey FM match review

Reported by Anthony Brady

In round five of the TRUenergy Victorian Football League season, the Berwick Lodge Primary School Casey Radio 97.7FM 3SER team headed north of Melbourne, to the suburb of Preston, to see Port Melbourne down the Northern Bullants by 34 points on Sunday.

In a wildly fluctuating match, the Borough got home with a five goal final term to win 15.12.102 to 10.8.68.

A very sunny day greeted players at NAB Oval, with not a breath of wind to speak of. A fairly healthy crowd of between 1500-2000 were in attendance to cheer on these long-time VFA/VFL rivals.

Things weren't going right for the 'Ants even before the first bounce, when they lost first-choice Carlton-listed ruckman Dylan McLaren to a right ankle injury. The injury happened so soon before the first bounce, that they were unable to bring in an extra player, and thus started with just three on the bench.

The Casey Radio 97.7FM 3SER team was divided on who would win the match, some feeling the benefit of having players training under AFL conditions at Carlton would assist the Bullants over the stand-alone Port side. However, others felt that with being restricted to just 12 AFL players, coupled with the Borough's excellent off-season recruiting drive, would see the boys from TEAC Oval come out on top.
Reported by Ben Carbonaro

Geelong (22.21.153) defeated the Casey Scorpions (11.6.72) at Casey Fields on Saturday.

Casey have performed inconsistently so far this season and went into the clash against Geelong needing to record a win in order to set themselves up to play a greater level of consistent and determined football in the coming weeks.

The Cats played a much cleaner and less error riddled brand of football compared to the Scorpions, who were unable to stop the powerful forward line led by Shannon Byrnes who dominated inside attacking fifty.

Byrnes kicked five goals in a best on ground performance for the Cats.
