Yarrawonga Chronicle

Changed line-up for grand final

- BY ROBERT MUIR

In the lead-up to the 2016 AFL grand final, the Sharp Street house with its Western Bulldogs’ decoration­s featured in our Yarrawonga Chronicle.

“This year we’ve got the words ‘Yield To None’ after Bevo’s saying just before the finals started this year,” Tony Plevnik told the Yarrawonga Chronicle.

Bevo of course is Western Bulldogs’ coach Luke Beveridge who guided the Bulldogs to a premiershi­p in 2016.

“Fingers crossed, Doggies by five goals” was 55-year-old Tony’s prediction on this Saturday night’s outcome. “There would be some consolatio­n if we lose. Jake Lever (Melbourne defender) is my second cousin and I’d be happy for his family.”

Neighbour Shane Grant is quietly confident about who will be premiers. “I just believe in Bevo’s boys – they have the means,” he reasoned.

The Pevniks moved to Yarrawonga in 2012, having lived in Altona and Braybrook. Dee said she regrets not being able to attend this year’s grand final due to Covid restrictio­ns. “But I’m sure everyone will hear me yelling!” she said.

Two ‘Bulldogs’ named ‘Winners’ and ‘Grinners’, a kennel and different wording are the changes at the front doorstep of Yarrawonga’s Plevnik family house for this year’s grand final.
