Internationals in Round 13 VFL action

Australia

Box Hill Hawks narrowly avoided defeat by North Ballarat in their Round 13 match. Shem Tatupu (NZ) kicked two goals for the second week in a row and Kurt Heatherley (NZ) was solid in defence across half back. The Hawks home by five points. 
 
Alex Aurrichio (US) now looking comfortable at VFL senior level had 37 hit-outs for the Northern Blues but could not help his team to a win as they went down to Richmond by four goals on their home ground.  Ciaran Byrne (Ire) made his long awaited return from injury to play for the Northern Blues and finished with 11 kicks, 8 handballs, 2 marks and 4 tackles.

It was a trans-Atlantic ruck clash as Eric Wallace (US) dominated the ruck duel against Padraig Lucey (Ire). Wallace won the hit-out stats with and incredible 78 taps to Lucey’s 46, but it was Lucey’s Cats that won by two points over Werribee.

Mason Cox (US) had 8 kicks 1 handball 4 marks, 4 tackles and 20 hit-outs for Collingwood but Footscray were too strong for the 'Pies winning by 68 points at Whitten Oval.
 

Sandringham were 15 points winners over Coburg on Sunday at Trevor Barker Oval with Sandringham ruckman Jason Holmes (US) registering 28 hit-outs and a goal.  A nice piece interviewing Holmes ran this week and can be read here at prodijee.com
