A sharp-eyed AFL observer also noted that in the U/16 grand final, one of the best players for North Hobart Red U16A team was Noah Brownless who will be a student at GYC in 2018.

And in the other match of interest at the weekend, the Lindisfarne Giants were defeated by Kingston in the “super rules” (over 35) footy final at  KGV Oval Saturday afternoon. The final score was 51. 28. Commiserations to Mr Lunn.
