For the flag

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Wfl Finals -

Jack Boshen is an­other to re­turn to the club af­ter time away and is a strong oneon-one de­fender, help­ing Minyip-mur­toa con­cede a league-best 47 points a game.

While wel­com­ing old play­ers back into the fold has proven a win­ning tac­tic for the Bur­ras, so has re­cruit­ing broth­ers Tim and Ben Mcin­tyre from the Kowreenara­coorte-ta­tiara Foot­ball League.

Both for­mer league best and fairest win­ners in the KNTFL, the pair has pro­vided class and skill in the mid­field and across half for­ward.

Co-cap­tain An­gus Trethowan adds some grunt around the ball and is a danger­ous player when he gets go­ing, while Kade Pe­ter­ing is a wild­card on the wing af­ter re­turn­ing from nearly two years on the side­lines with a knee in­jury.

Up for­ward the Bur­ras have one of the top goal-kick­ers in the league, Brad Inglis, at cen­tre half for­ward, with Jae Mc­grath and Bray­den Ison as deep mark­ing tar­gets.

De­lahunty said what­ever the out­come of this year’s fi­nals se­ries was, the Bur­ras would ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­pe­ri­ence.

“There are a few of us who played in those grand fi­nal losses two or three years ago, but I think this year’s suc­cess has come from hav­ing lit­tle ex­pec­ta­tion,” he said.

“The fo­cus has been on the en­joy­ment of our foot­ball and it will con­tinue to be the fo­cus.”
