Gut Feelings XIV - Collection of deep thoughts from influential minds deep inside the nest

Andrew Thomson

  • If you visit the Sports Bar in the club have a look down the back where 4 new honour boards have appeared. 
  • The honour boards are for "Clubman of the Year", "Seniors Most Consistent and Rookie of the Year", "Coach of the Year"  and "Club Patrons and the VFL/AFL Players" the club has produced. If you get a chance have a look as the Magpies start to fully document their history.
  • The honour boards have been made possible by the work of Ink Creations and their Director Craig St John. The Selvage family also made a significant contribution last year to ensure the Honour Boards were commenced. 
  • The Commemorative guernseys were worn by the players in the two victories over Sandgate. Over 50 guernseys have been sold with another 20 people expressing interest in purchasing a guernsey.
  • Orders with preferred numbers will be taken up to Friday September 7th and must be paid for otherwise the requested guernsey will not be ordered. 
  • Currently there are 16 guernseys available if anyone is not concerned about the number—if the Guernsey is to be framed then the number will not be seen. 
  • Payment options will be put up on facebook and club websiteF early next week, apologies if you are yet to receive a reply to email enquiry
  • Both the Seniors and Reserves face do or die matches this weekend  and for the Seniors a victory can have great rewards of a possible second or third place finish and the double chance. The Reserves must win but can go no higher than fourth.
  • The equation is quite simple for both teams--win and go on in the finals, lose and it is Mad Monday a few weeks earlier than would have been hoped for!!
  • Lachlan Woods was among the better players for the Pies in their win last week and his form since his return from injury mid-year has been right up there. He has been among the best players in the past half a dozen matches and his presence in the midfield has certainly been one of the reasons that the Pies are firing at the right end of the season. Wood-duck deserved all the accolades he received last week in his 100th Senior match for the Pies. 
  • The Reserves are coming home with a wet sail but there can be no slip ups against Surfers Paradise. The Demons upset the Pies earlier in the season but have struggled since, but coach Des Lashman will have his team on guard for an ambush and hopefully there will be no upset this weekend. His team is much stronger this week than 8 weeks ago and should get the job done.
  • The Colts. will be refreshed after another week off and should have too much firepower for Surfers Paradise on Saturday. A Pies win will stitch up top place on the ladder but the worry for coach Jake Fuentes should the Pies finish on top is another week off and only 2 matches in a month. I suspect that next week there will be some vigorous practice match simulation at training to keep the lads match fit.
  • The Woodsmen survived a tight Second Semi Final to squeeze past the second placed Maroochydore before a good sized crowd at McCarthy Homes Oval on Friday night. 
  • The Woodsmen will again take on Maroochydoore next Friday 31st August at Coorparoo after they defeated Jimboomba this evening.
  • Tim Green celebrated his 100th game for the Woodsmen last week, and while many talented players have played for the Woodsmen over the years, sometimes to the frustration of the odd Senior or Reserves Coach, keen observers will tell you that 'Greeny' is one of the few that really could have cracked it at Senior level in his day had his work commitments allowed it.
  • The recent form of Ryan Harwood must put him in contention for the Syd Guildford Medal for best player as judged by the QAFL coaches in each match. Harwood has been superb this season but he must have polled quite a few votes in the past 4 matches when voting has not been published to be right up there. The winner will be announced at the QAFL Grogan medal night on the Sunday after the Preliminary Final on September 16th.
    • Riley Easton will be a serious contender for the QAFL Rising Star Award after some brilliant football in the past 6 weeks. He has been a dynamo in the midfield and across half forward and his  pressure stats --if analysed-- would be off the radar. He has bounced back in a big way after doing his ACL 2 years ago as a 16 year old and has been rewarded for his determination and persistence to now be one of the first picked after being on the fringe earlier in the year.
