It was blue skies and crisp air as the Bruns Bulldogs Under-11s took on the Murwillumbah Vulcans on Sunday.

The Vulcans laid the foundation for victory with a dominant first half. For the Dogs, River Dragonfly was busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger on the last line of defence reading the play beautifully to repel wave after wave of Vulcan attacks.

The Dogs found their mojo after the long break in what became an entertaining end to end second half.

Thandi McAllister lit up the Doggies’ scoreboard with a rover’s snap from the goal square, Jasper Willis and Charlie McAllister were hurling themselves into the hard contests, Charlie Heath exploded off the packs while Krishant McDonald and Ryan Diehm opened the game up with their prodigious punts.

The Doggies play of the day started on the halfback flank, moved fluently through six sets of hands and finished with Kaliyah Browning booting the sausage roll.

The Murwillumbah Vulcans got the four points but it was hats off to all players, coaches and supporters for a game of junior footy at its very best.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
