Ladder position: 7th, our draw and a better run with our injury list see us make the 8. Where we will see the superior conditioning of the team, led by Crowey, help the players run amok in the finals and embarrass teams above us as we push into the GF. We beat the Swans by a kick after Ambrose is switched onto Buddy and stops him from getting any more than the five goals he picked up against Hurls and Harts in the first half. JoeDan kicks 4, Walla kicks three, Parish kicks two in the last to put us in front, picks up 34 possies and and picks up the Norm Smith.
Best and fairest: Jobe, he will remind us all of how great he is, was and will always be. Zerrett and Heppell to come in close 2nd and 3rd. Parish, 4th. Hurley, 5th.
Leading goalkicker: JoeDan, could have had the Coleman if only he could have kicked better with both feet. Kicks 37.43 with his left foot and 31.25 with his right foot.
Second leading goalkicker: Fanta, although it is closely contested by the others in the mossie fleet
Most likely to be suspended: Ambrose, for the charge of tackling too hard. Also known as the Dempsey Rule.
The player that emerges as a genuine star: Parish, to have an amazing 2nd year and stamp himself as a future multiple Crichton, ANZAC Day, Brownlow and Norm Smith medallist.
Final season for: Kelly, who will inspire the likes of McGrath, Gleeson, Jerrett and McKenna to surpass him as the year progresses and go on to play great careers for the Bombers.
Goal of the year: Walla, after a run down tackle, ball strip, blind turn, selling candy like it is Halloween and then slotting it through the middle, giving a massive fist pump, jumper pull to the Bombers faithful in the crowd on ANZAC Day!
Mark of the year: JoeDan, taking it at the highest point, he will be standing on top Nic Nat, who is standing on top of the pack.
Biggest surprise: We actually start to get the rub of the green from the umps. Throws, chops, drops, in the back pushes and ducks are called, for what they are, for "both" teams.
