    VFL TEAMS: Willy gets the guns out, debut for Lions legend's son

    All the ins and outs for this week's VFL action

    WILLIAMSTOWN will welcome back imposing forward Nick Rodda and gun full-back Jack Leslie from injury for Sunday’s Johnson-Callahan Cup heritage match against Port Melbourne at ETU Stadium.

    The big goalkicker hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder against the Borough in round three and returns just in time to face the Seagulls’ arch-rivals again in what is a last-chance saloon for the home team in Eli Templeton’s 100th VFL match.

    Leslie was a late withdrawal from Williamstown’s thrilling draw with Richmond last week but comes straight back into the team, with ruck-forward Joel Ottavi surprisingly dropped alongside veteran Nick Sing.

    Port Melbourne has been similarly boosted, with important ball-winner Mack Rivett and former AFL Kangaroo Declan Watson included for the game among four changes, but it has lost Matt Arnot (groin), Dirk Koenen (concussion) and Jake Gasper (hamstring) to injury, while Tom O’Sullivan Jnr was omitted.

    Coburg has handed a debut to Dinny Cleary, the son of club legend Phil, for its tough clash against the undefeated Footscray at Craigieburn.

    Cleary is joined by Ryan Sturgess, but big midfielder Jacob Ballard (hamstring) will miss.

    The Bulldogs will be below full strength, with Josh Schache, Ed Richards and Riley Garcia all flying to Perth as AFL emergencies.

    Frankston regains star midfielders Nathan Freeman and Anthony Brolic, plus forwards Jack Mentha and Brodie McLaughlin for its must-win match against Collingwood at Olympic Park, but gun midfielder Will Fordham (knee) is out for the season and Bailey Lambert has reinjured his calf.

    The Magpies recalled eight AFL-listed players from the team which lost to Sydney way back in round five, with Callum Brown, Oliver Henry, Brayden Sier, Max Lynch, Tom Wilson, Mark Keane and Anton Tohill all returning.

    Mason Cox, Trent Bianco and Jack Madgen are in the AFL line-up, while Ned Moyle was drafted by Gold Coast and assistant coach Scott Selwood also comes out.

    Aspley welcomes back Matt Eagles from suspension alongside Jono Freeman, Liam Dawson and Tom Baulch for its first trip to Melbourne to meet Box Hill Hawks on Saturday, with the Hawks losing Denver Grainger-Barras from a hefty squad of 31.

    Southport handed the experienced Ryan Davis his first game of the season against his former club Gold Coast in the second Coast Clash at Metricon Stadium, with Josh Williams also returning but Brayden Crossley (ankle) to miss.

    The Suns lost Ben Ainsworth, Josh Corbett and Jeremy Sharp (AFL), plus Jordan Murdoch, with Brayden Fiorini and Chris Burgess among the inclusions.

    Werribee made just one change to face the rejuvenated North Melbourne in Liston medallist Tom Gribble’s 100th VFL appearance and Dom Brew’s 50th, with Connor Thar to debut, while the Kangaroos will be without last week’s matchwinners Will Phillips (AFL), Tyler Roos and Ben Speight, but Jared Polec (hamstring) will play his first game in 12 weeks and Bailey Scott drops back.

    Tim Jones and William Mitchell come in for the Northern Bullants’ first clash against former alignment club Carlton, with former Blue Finbar O’Dwyer (knee) injured last week.

    Carlton lost big men Levi Casboult (suspended) and Alex Mirkov (knee) from a squad of 30.

    Sam Dunell, Dean Kent and Jack Lonie have been named for Sandringham’s clash with Richmond, as has St Kilda’s mid-season draftee Cooper Sharman, with Luke Dunstan, Ben Long, Mason Wood and Nick Coffield elevated to the AFL since the Zebras last played in round six.

    The Tigers lost Marlion Pickett back to the AFL, Samson Ryan to a debut at the top level and Bigoa Nyuon to injury, with Josh Caddy heading the inclusions.

    Casey Demons have named a huge 20 AFL-listed players to face Essendon at Casey Fields on Sunday, with mid-season draftees Kye Declase and Daniel Turner, Sam Weideman, Neville Jetta, Jake Melksham, Aaron Vandenberg, Bailey Laurie and Deakyn and Joel Smith all coming into the team.

    Former captain Jack Hutchins, Zac Foot and Cory Stockdale were desperately unlucky to be left out, with captain Mitch White and vice-captain Jimmy Munro the only two VFL-listed players to retain their spots.

    AFL stars David Zaharakis and Aaron Francis have been selected in a strong Essendon team, while Patrick Ambrose, Tom Cutler, Ned Cahill and Kyle Dunkley also return, with Cody Brand heading a list of youngsters to lose their spots.

    GWS Giants will start overwhelming favourites to defeat Sydney, with the Swans leaving the majority of their reserves players behind in their mad dash out of NSW.

    Sydney will have just nine AFL listees, with at least 13 NAB Leaguers from Bendigo, GWV and Geelong who missed Victoria Country selection to fill in the gaps.

    The Giants brought their entire AFL squad to Melbourne and have a full list to choose from, with just four NAB League players needed.

    Bullants cast their Blues away, big Dee kicks a handful

    Some victories can be just that little bit sweeter than others

    "IT'S one win but given what this footy club has endured over the last 12 months it's one to savour. Proud and happy for everyone who is connected in some way to the Ants."

    Sometimes home-and-away victories can be just as important – and almost as enjoyable – as winning a premiership.

    A big call, sure, but for everybody involved with the Northern Bullants, Sunday’s 32-point VFL triumph over Carlton at Preston City Oval fitted the bill, and coach Josh Fraser’s tweet above shows it was about much, much more than just four premiership points.

    Preston Football Club’s 138 years of history was on the brink in March 2020 after Carlton ended their alignment, so for the Bullants to not only survive but convincingly beat the Blues is a story that movies have been made from.

    Buoyed by a late fightback against Frankston last week, the Bullants gained confidence from sticking with Carlton early, going into the quarter-time break seven points down, and they got a sniff when heart-and-soul skipper Tom Wilson levelled the scores early in the second term.

    Three times Carlton regained the lead and three times the home team responded within minutes, going into into half-time five points up and cock-a-hoop on the back of Tynan Smith’s third goal.

    Paul Ahern helped stretch the lead to 13 and despite Corey Durdin bringing the Blues back within six, something clicked that said this was going to be a red and white day.

    The Bullants had 11 of the next 12 scoring shots and led by 42 points when Matthew King kicked truly entering time-on of the final quarter, and while Carlton did boot the last two majors, the Ants were already in party mode and everybody involved in the club was in the circle to belt out the loudest song heard from the Preston rooms in many years.

    Extended highlights of the round 11 VFL clash between Northern Bullants and Carlton

    Published on

    Daniel Hughes was terrific in the ruck for the Bullants with 33 hitouts, providing first use to William Mitchell (28), Wilson (23, two goals), Billy Murphy (21, two goals) and Kye Quirk (21), while Smith was a matchwinner with seven marks and four goals.

    Sam Ramsay (29) and James Parson (27) were best for the Blues, while Toby Wooller kicked three goals, but they missed a golden opportunity to enter the top eight.

    Williamstown retained the Johnson-Callahan Cup when it powered away from Port Melbourne to win by 37 points at ETU Stadium.

    A woeful display of goalkicking saw the score at 0.7 to 0.5, until Harvey Hooper slotted the hardest shot of the lot from the boundary after 25 minutes to give the Borough an eight-point lead at the first break as tempers boiled over.

    Seagull Daly Andrews was doubled over in Port’s forward line for several minutes before Borough star Corey Wagner was clattered by a late bump on the siren and almost every player got involved in the skirmish.

    It sparked Williamstown to life as Nick Rodda kicked his side's first goal early in the second and the Seagulls kicked the next nine to get out by as much as 48 points.

    Rodda (four goals) marked everything in his first game since these two clubs' previous meeting in round three, while at the other end Port couldn’t find a way through Charlie Dean (11 marks), Jack Leslie and Harry Macreadie, with Teia Miles and Jake Greiser providing the springboard off half-back and Darby Henderson putting in one of his best VFL games.

    The Borough kicked the last three goals of the third quarter after Declan Watson was shifted forward, with Anthony Anastasio providing dash, Nash Holmes and Wagner working hard and 100-gamer Eli Templeton, skipper Tom O’Sullivan and backman Perry Lewis-Smith refusing to concede.

    But Williamstown snuffed out the rally with the first three goals of the last term to claim its fourth win (and a draw) from their past five clashes.

    Ben Brown returned to form with five goals as the Casey Demons wore Essendon down by 48 points at Casey Fields.

    Brown took eight marks and had 14 kicks to cap off the dominance of Melbourne legend Nathan Jones, who turned back the clock with 36 disposals, 11 clearances, six tackles and a goal to also remind Simon Goodwin of his presence.

    Essendon hit the lead midway through the third term, but Casey responded with 6.6 unanswered across the next 30 minutes.

    Aaron Vandenberg impressed with 28 disposals and seven tackles in his first game since a quad injury in April, while Jake Bowey and Jake Melksham were also good and Sam Weideman pulled in 11 marks as a second ruckman, but kicked 1.3.

    Nick O’Kearney was the Bombers’ best with 28 touches and eight marks, while Tom Cutler (35) and Joe Atley (28) won plenty of the ball and David Zaharakis found some touch with 27 disposals.

    Son of a gun Tom Hird had his best game as a Bomber with 20 disposals and a goal.

    GWS made the most of an undermanned Sydney to win by 38 points at the Holden Centre.

    With the Swans leaving most of their VFL players in Sydney last week, they needed 13 Vic Country NAB Leaguers to field a team.

    Tom Green (35) and Xavier O’Halloran (26) took full toll for GWS and Jake Riccardi kicked 3.4, while Callum Sinclair was best on ground for the Swans with 25 disposals, six marks, 45 hitouts and a goal, feeding Lewis Taylor (32, two goals) and Ryan Clarke (30).
