UNDER 8s Crocs’ coach Matt Scott was delighted with player numbers, with 10 enthusiastic players lighting up the Croc Pit on Sunday morning in front of a packed and vocal home crowd.
New signing Hugo “Warrick Capper” Ellison was sensational in his first game kicking four goals and was well supported by Angus “Dunstall” Van Rooyan and Colby “Swan” Taylor who managed to kicked straight this week with a couple of long bombs.
The three smallest players on the field Hayden “Hunt” Caswell, Ethan “Baker” Scott and game day captain Kalan “Ricciuto” Poole used their pace well and were all busy weaving in and out of traffic and opening up the play.
Crowd favourites Kai “Hodge” Durie and Sam “Cotchin” Wall provided many running and linking passages and even took a couple of hangers which excited the home crowd. The ruck work from both Tam “Goodes” Nguyen and Mr Fix It Daniel “Carrazzo” Harrington was outstanding.
Coach’s awards went to Hugo, Ethan, Daniel and Kalan.
