AUSSIE RULES: “See ball, get ball, kick goals”.

It’s a simple mantra, but it’s one that junior Aussie rules star Chris Wynd, 14, has at the forefront of his mind before heading out onto the field before a big game.

The under-14s had a home ground advantage this week for their match against the South Toowoomba Bombers, but despite a loss the team still managed to stay positive.

“It was our best game of the season by far, and the first game we’ve kept them under 100,” Chris said.

“Everyone performed well, and our fitness training has definitely pulled off.”

Captain, Hamish Waye, 13, said the team had improved drastically since the start of the season, and said focused fitness training was the key to their improvement.

Going up against the Bombers, however, was not easy feat.

“The hardest part was trying to keep up with them,” he said.

“They’re a very fast team.”

He had some key pieces of advice to give to his teammates before heading onto the field.

“Try your hardest and not to give them the easy ball,” he said.

“Head over the ball, and just tackle anyone else who’s not on your team.”
