I went out to Fowlds Park yesterday to see Pt Chev beat Mt Albert. It’s always good to get back and see grassroots football. Entertaining footy with some funny comments from the crowd!
Interesting to see an ex Mt Albert player supporting local football. This guy also played a bit of RUgby Union on the wing too … Doug Howlett.
 
That was a pretty eye opening score.

I was thinking the standard might actually go up this year due to more reserve graders and juniors being available.

I thought the ARL really missed a chance to have some good crowds - a carnival / magic round to start the year probably would of drew a decent crowd.

Northcote unbeaten though...!
I still remember playing for Point Chev . back in the mid sixties in the then Fox Memorial & Roope Rooster comps.
Havent seen a local game for years except went to MSS a few years ago to watch Point playing a Grand Final.Living now in Tauranga so the travel is a problem.
Keep up the news .Very interesting for me.
 
How old would he be now? That's not the same Akland boy that was over in Melbourne with one of the AFL clubs?
Eiden, he’s like 24 maybe

Smart footy player as you would expect coming from that family. But probably won’t ever crack it in first grade because of his athletic limitations.

He's done well with a young Lions team. Yeah, a bit on the small side and Aus is full of skilled smaller players just like him . I think the AFL one was an older brother then.
 
Pt Chev vs Glenora Fox Memorial Final next week

& Northcote vs Pakuranga in the Championship.

I went and watched the Northcote play Ponsonby today.
Kevin Locke was playing FB and they're coached by ex Warrior David Bhana (who is surely young enough to still be playing)

Good to see Eiden Ackland playing for Ponsonby u85kg rugby team, The Hustlers, this afternoon in their semi final vs Eden.
The ARL should have created an open age restricted post season comp. They could have got a lot of the rugby u85kg players, many of whom have RL backgrounds or want to try RL.
