One Tribe – June AFLQ Football Update

26 June 2015

TRIBAL FOOTY UPDATE:

As promised, we have been tracking the progress of all Tribal clubs over the past month or so from the NEAFL to the Juniors, here is the latest footy update from club in ‘The Tribe’.

NEAFL

Starting in the NEAFL, Aspley’s mission to go B2B in season 2015 is off to a cracking start. The reigning premiers are sitting pretty at 7-1, only behind GWS feeder club as they have played one extra game.  A loss to NT a couple weeks ago proved to be an early season wake up call as they got one back from the Thunder last weekend in a thriller at TIO Stadium. Without doubt, Aspley would have taken plenty out of that match and will look to dominate the remainder of the Home and Away season.

QAFL

In the QAFL, Palm Beach is currently sitting in 5th position on the ladder and battling for consistency throughout the beginning of the season, and a loss to Wilston Grange on the weekend made things a bit tricky, as they are now 2 games behind the 4th place Gorillas. But never count out Palmy – expect them to come hard in back half of the season. UQ, although sitting on the bottom of the ladder right now after another tough loss to the Western Magpies on the weekend. However, with just the one win on the board, they have shown massive signs of improvement, which will no doubt increase further throughout the remainder of 2015. Pfeiffer appears to doing a great job with the students!

QWAFL

In the QWAFL, similar to their QAFL side, UQ has only managed the one win in 2015 but have been very competitive. They kept reigning premiers, Coorparoo, to just 53 points a few weeks ago whilst scoring 19 points of their own. This is an extremely hard task against such a quality side with plenty of firepower up forward. Griffith Moorooka haven’t yet managed to put a win on the board in 2015, struggling for numbers which is crucial to being competitive in the premier women’s competition. All this aside, they are no doubt giving 110% effort each week to remain competitive at the level with stars such as Sam Virgo and Jenna Van Dyk at the helm. Things aren’t looking great at the moment for the reds but with these two leading the side, they are bound for success in the future.

QFA NORTH

In the North conference of the QFA, Maroochydore are sitting nicely in 2nd position on the ladder after a massive 147 point win on the weekend against the struggling Hornets. A few weeks ago they had achieved what everyone had been trying to do for the past season and a half by knocking off the previously unbeaten Mayne Tigers by 9 points in a thriller. Caloundra are sitting in the middle of the pack in 4th position. Currently just in front of Moreton Bay after knocking them off by 10 points leading into last weekend’s bye. They have a big game against Maroochydore this weekend to test themselves against one of the best. Aspley Hornets are currently sitting in 6th position on the ladder with their only points coming from a draw earlier in the season. They have a clash with Nambour this weekend to decided who stays on the bottom on the QFA North ladder – we are tipping them to open their account.

QFA SOUTH

Coorparoo continued their unbeaten run in the QFA South competition after a tough couple weeks beating reigning premiers Springwood by 2 points, then a draw against a strong Yeronga outfit. However, they had a much easier game on the weekend easily disposing of Alex Hills by 115 points. But easy wins don’t come around often in this competition and we think Kenmore Bears might have something to say about their unbeaten run this weekend in the top of the table clash. The mighty Kenmore Bears are sitting on the heels of Coorparoo in second place are two big consecutive wins over Springwood and Yeronga. Tribal on Tribal this Sunday at Giffin Park – what a game it will be!

Robina haven’t had the start to year they were hoping for, with just 1 win to their name sitting in 7th position. A tough loss to Coomera on the weekend will surely put a fire in their belly for the local derby with Burleigh this weekend.

QAFA (A)

In the QAFA (A) division, Griffith Moorooka Roosters are still well on track to achieve their goal for B2B premierships. Only problem they have at the moment is that Bond Uni want to spoil the party, knocking them off by 7 points in a recent outing. It’s just as well premierships aren’t won in May and massive wake up call for the reigning premiers. The Roosters are still sitting comfortably in second after a strong 52-point victory on the weekend against Carrara. Griffith are no doubt chewing at the bit for a second crack at Bond Uni towards the end of the season. In their debut season, the South East Suns are making the most of every opportunity they get. Sitting in 3rd place on the ladder, the suns faced a bit of an arm wrestle against the Victoria Point Sharks on the weekend. After a slow start in the first half, they composed themselves in the second half to finish strongly and win by 17 points. The Suns have an important match this weekend against Carrara to go 2 games clear of their opponents. A vital win to make sure they keep the top 2 sides within arms reach and priming themselves for a finals birth. It will be an exciting second half of the season in this competition!!

QAFA (B) Central

What an exciting competition the QAFA (B) Central comp in shaping up to be? They have 14 teams fighting for 6 finals spots available and In matter of a couple weeks you can find yourself going from 3rd place to 7th place as Coorparoo found out. With a 6-3 win-loss record you’d think you’d be looking all right but not the case when 4 other teams share same figures. 2 Tribal sides went into battle Friday night, Jimboomba and Coorparoo, 3rd vs 5th and the mighty Redbacks proved to be too strong for their opponents with a solid 30 point victory to assure themselves 3rd spot for another week. UQ disposed off the Mayne Tigers in their clash on the weekend by 40 points and are sitting nicely in 4th place behind Jimboomba. However they’re facing a huge challenge this weekend coming up against the reigning premiers Woodsmen. Kenmore opened their account on the weekend with a huge 101-point win over the struggling Ipswich Cats and will be hoping to continue this form heading into their clash against ladder leaders Kedron this weekend.

QAFA (B) South

Only a small 5 team competition in the south but this just makes it that much tighter. Playing the same sides regularly gives you greater opportunity to understand how they tick and find ways to get on top of them when you meet again in a few weeks time. The mighty Ballina Bombers have had a seesaw start to the season but a 2 goal win over 2nd place Tweed Coast a couple weeks ago was just the confidence booster they needed to believe they are a chance to be a contender in September. They’ve had a bye week recover now and they face fellow Tribal club Robina this weekend. Robina have struggled for consistent numbers all season and managed just the one win to their name. However not to be taken lightly and are definitely capable of knocking any side off if they turn up to play.

Darling Downs

Heading all the way to the AFLDD Division 2 Men’s we have the mighty Chinchilla Suns representing Tribal Sport. 4 and 4 win/loss record so far this season, sitting nicely in 4th place. The Suns recently knocked off the reigning premiers, University Tigers by 20 points and following that up with a 79 thrashing off Coolaroo. Highfields brought them back to earth on the weekend going down by 36 points but they’ll be looking to enter the winner’s circle again this weekend against the winless Lockyer Valley Demons.

AFL CAIRNS/TOWNSVILLE

Heading up to the competitions in the North, we have a couple of star performers in the competitions up there. Thuringowa Bulldogs are waving the flag for Tribal Sport in the Townsville competition sitting nicely on top of the ladder. The Bulldogs disposed of the 2nd placed Hermit Park Tigers by 28 a couple weeks ago and had a massive 233-point win on the weekend against the Townsville Lions kicking a whopping 37 goals and 19 behinds. A timely bye this weekend will give a few blokes the opportunity to recover from leather poisoning and be ready for their next clash against the Curra Swans. The other Tribal club starring in their respective competition is the Eastern Swans in Mackay. A perfect 8-0 win/loss record and comfortably disposed of 4th place Mackay Magpies on the weekend by 126 points. A promise start to the year and hopefully they can continue their dominant form for the remainder on the season.
