Internationals in Round 16 VFL action


Getting to the business end of the season of the VFL.  Shem Tatupu and Conor McKenna's efforts up forward and Mason Cox's ruckwork were the standout performances among the Internationals in the VFL this week.

Box Hill regained top spot with a 39 points win over Richmond.  Kurt Heatherley (NZ) had 9 kicks, 3 handballs, 6 marks and 3 tackles at centre half back, playing on the much taller 202cm Liam McBean.  Shem Tatupu (NZ) kept up his consistency at VFL level kicking another two goals and having 6 kicks, 4 handballs, 4 marks and 2 hit-outs.
Conor McKenna (Ire) had 13 disposals and also kicked two majors for the Bombers as they lost by 22 points to last year’s VFL Premiers Footscray.


Alex Aurrichio (USA) continues to hold his spot at the Northern Blues but probably did not enjoy being on the end of a 112 point belting at the hands of North Ballarat. He finished with 3 disposals, 3 tackles and 20 hit-outs.

Williamstown were 32 point winners over Collingwood. Collingwood’s Mason Cox (USA) had 10 disposals, one mark and three tackles to go along with 26 hit-outs (see video below), while his countryman Eric Wallace (USA) had a quiet day with 12 disposals and one tackle for the Seagulls.

At Frankston Oval Geelong smashed the Dolphins by 72 points. Padraig Lucey (Ire) kicked 1.1 for the Cats and had 7 disposals, 4 marks and 14 hit-outs.
