AFL Round 11 – Melbourne Vs Collingwood


Woohooo.. a chance to extend the winning streak… We dropped this corresponding game earlier this year so I hoped the boys would be able to get up. for the first three quarters we looked a bit scratchy and couldn’t put them away.. Fortunately, the boys found their accuracy and stopped indiscriminately bomobing onto the Forward 50 and started tohit targets and ended up with the Chocolates.. Now to put Carlton away…
