The Late Steve Chisholm would have been very proud of Team Rohan today, putting in a great all-round effort in a classy display of the progression in teamwork and skills they have developed throughout the season.

Thanks to Ran for bringing the black tape the kids wore today as a sign of respect to the Club founder who passed away on Friday.  The warmup was spectacular with all the children diligently focussing on their celebrations – it was clear they had all done their homework this week…

We were slow out of the blocks with Luke keeping us in the game early as Willoughby got out to a lead with a strong start. 

Once we settled into the game we got some momentum and then come the third quarter, the link up handballs through the middle with Coco, Max and Owen set the team up for a tsunami of celebrations for the rest of the game – well done to our team photographer Jo for catching some of the action of the cartwheels!!

After a week on the sidelines reportedly relaxing by the pool with mocktails, Oscar showed brilliance today crashing the packs and running with the ball, while Angus was impenetrable down back marking everything that came his way on the rare occasion the ball when into the backline in the second half.

Well done everyone on a great team performance.  Captain Max summed it up beautifully at three quarter time, ‘we’re playing for Steve’ and I’m sure everyone will agree that Team Rohan certainly did him proud!

Team Captain – Max

Best Handball – Coco

Best Team Player – Oscar

Next week we are back at Blackman Park against Manly Phantoms.  Start time is 9:15am so please get there at 8:45am for a warm up.  Team captain will be Oscar, with the Bealby’s on Orange & Snake duty and the Boyle and Pyne family on Best & Fairest voting.
