Dean Trevaskis

The belief that you are good enough arrived for the Bruns Valley Bulldogs Under-11’s footy team two weeks ago.

Their first-half performance against the Tweed Tigers turned the form guide on its head, and this new-found mojo underpinned a big win on Sunday against a brave Casino side.

Early-season wobblers off the boot became deftly weighted punts, fumbled marks became one-hand grabs, handballs linked together and loose players were created and found.

Ocean Casuarina dominated the ruck, rover Charlie Heath darted with grace and grunt gathering possession while River Dragonfly gave the goal umpire burnt nostrils nailing seven goals from all angles. Fino Rudd bagged four majors of his own.

In the Doggie’s backline Phoenix Islinger let his lightning speed off the chain and Jimmy Trevaskis translated his training skills into game day, taking his first speccy and releasing teammates with clever handballs.

The team has the bye this weekend, which is a shame because they are hungrier than a pack of junkyard dogs at a vegan picnic.
