Player of the Week – Jack (Auskick)
Jack started playing Auskick in 2018 making this his second season in our U6 squad.
Jack started playing Auskick because his big brother Cohen was playing. Cohen is now in the undefeated U14 Bombers team and Jack goes to every single game in his Manly Bombers uniform to support his big brother's team.
Jack feels like an absolute super star when he kicks goals through the big "posters" or posts! He kicked 3 goals last week and said "I marked the ball, ran down the field, laces to faces and booted it through the middle - BOOM!". He was very proud of himself and smiled for the rest of the weekend.
Jack also loves the drill Mad Marks, especially when he takes a speccy!
Jack played a quality game on the weekend and showed strong team work, and of course, kicked 3 goals. Jack's coach John is proud of his persistence and determination on the field and his willingness to practice a lot outside of training, because Jack knows...
...the more you practice, the better you get!
Player of the Week – Finley Bull (U9 Mustangs)
Finley Bull, a first year Manly Bombers player, has impressed everyone with his skills and fantastic attitude this season!
Never afraid of the contest, Finley has taken some awesome grabs in a number of games.
Coming from a rugby background, Finley has shown that when you listen to the coach and want to learn about a new game, there are plenty of transferrable skills to bring across to AFL.
It is clear to everyone on the sideline that Finley is loving his AFL experience and his skills continue to improve each week.
Finley's marking and kicking skills are already strong and he is working hard to perfect his hand-balling technique. He makes an immediate and positive impact on the game every time he is on the field.
Finley is an enthusiastic and committed member of the team and a pleasure to have as a player in the Mustang's side. Well done Finely and keep up the great work!
Player of the Week – Tilly Hall (U10)
Tilly is truly a well-deserving choice as the U10 player of the week. Like all committed players, Tilly plays hard on the game field and the training field; she listens & learns from her coaches, teammates and opponents; never gives up; supports her team and if that smile says anything -- she loves playing AFL!
Being our Players of the Week they have won a free sausage sandwich or egg and bacon roll and a drink from the Club House canteen.
