It’s club first for 200-game hero
IT speaks volumes of St Joseph’s culture and Daniel Lovick that even in the afterglow of a big win and celebrating 200 games for the club, Lovick was more focused on his side’s output.
“I don’t enjoy doing this stuff,” Lovick laughed, speaking to Kix 89.3FM. “We were not happy with last week. We set ourselves to atone for that this week, and I think we did that.”
Lovick was at his consummate best, intercepting marks at will, zoning off and setting up attacking thrusts. After two Mathieson Medals and three club best-and-fairests, his coach Heath Jamieson couldn’t speak highly enough of the rebounding defender.
“He’s an absolute warrior; he’s someone who we’re extremely proud of,” Jamieson said. “It’d be a hard to find 200 games like his. He leaves nothing out there, he’s a joy to watch and have around.”
Lovick believes the three tall forwards were vital to the win over Colac, and will be again in the grand final, against St Mary’s this week.
