The Wash-Up – BFL Round 4

WINNERS

SCOREBOARD – ROUND 4

“THE” RESULT

Torquay started well and finished strongly in beating Anglesea by 40 points to ensure it stayed just one win outside the top five. The Tigers have used just 27 players through the opening four rounds, with 16 of those playing every game. That stability will be crucial to Torquay returning to finals in 2019.

THE TALKING POINT

At 0-4, can we discount Ocean Grove from finals? The Grubbers could easily be 2-2 if not for two four-point losses in the opening month of the season. The absence of star midfielder Luke Cartelli with a hamstring injury isn’t helping their cause, while coach Jordy Jones missed his second match of the season against Modewarre.

MISSING STARS HURT COUTAS

Consider these names sidelined for Queenscliff: Jayden Durran, Justin Maher, Tom Limb and Michael Randone and it’s no surprise the start to season 2019 has been a spluttering one for the Coutas. Coach Steve Clark is not one for excuses, but get that quartet back and things will start moving in the right direction.
