Nines a chance to try AFL
THE Dubbo Demons, under returning President and Dubbo Day Awardee, Joe Knagge, have introduced a “taste of Aussie Rules” mixed competition.
The Nines has six teams for the inaugural event with mixed age/mixed gender teams to encourage newcomers and “lapsed” footballers to get along to Katrina Gibbs Oval and have a go.
New coach Steve Smith will use this prepre-season comp as an opportunity to assess his charges before the real pre-season training commences in the new year.
Demons regular Bevan Charlton-white demonstrates the perfect running mark
Hand-passing is one of the skills unique to Aussie Rules, and one that those with Touch, Oz Tag or Rugby backgrounds have to master Bevan Charlton-white might have gone a little early and Noel Mcgrath is set to steal the mark
The big men are a feature of AFL, marking with aplomb!
