The Wash-Up – GFL Round 5

WINNERS

GFL Scoreboard – Round 5

“THE” RESULT

St Mary’s made a statement in putting away an inaccurate Leopold by 10 goals. Travis Robertson and Glenn Keast have assembled a list that is one of the GFL’s most talented, and that was on full display at Anthony Costa Oval on Saturday afternoon.

THE TALKING POINT

There are two. Is Newtown & Chilwell’s season cooked after just five rounds? The Eagles are now 1-4 and face Colac following the interleague break. And are South Barwon a sneaky chance of challenging for a top five spot. The Swans will get a another test of their improvement against St Mary’s in Round 6.

BIG WINNER

Colac did what many teams won’t do in 2018 and come away from Bell Park with the four points. It was a crucial result for the Tigers, who would have been 2-3 and two games adrift of the top five if they hadn’t of snuck home.

BIG LOSER

Newtown & Chilwell. Need to beat teams like South Barwon if they are to challenge for a finals berth.

INJURY BLOW FOR TIGERS

Scans have confirmed a knee injury suffered by Williamstown-listed Grovedale recruit Hayden Walters in the Spirit of Anazc win over Lara on April 22 is a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. “Both Hayden and the club are saddened by the news, but with immediate surgery … it will allow us to ensure he can complete his rehab over the remainder of the season to give him every chance of being ready for Round 1 in 2019” Williamstown football boss Stephen Soulsby said.
