UPON hearing that AFL was returning to Gundary Oval, the gods put on football weather for the opening games of the Eurobodalla AFL 9s competition hosted by the Broulee-Moruya Giants on Monday.
On a blustery evening, a keen group of players showed their interest and four teams were formed in each of the under 10s, under 13s and open’s divisions.
Most of the younger players were familiar with the concept after playing in the Paul Kelly Cup.
In the open’s division, some were coming to grips with new rules and some were coming to grips with an oval-shaped ball.
The Dunns Creek Road Camels faced Broulee’s Wise and Wherefores and the Spanish Inquisitors played the Rest of the World.
No scores were recorded, but football was undoubtedly the winner on the day.
The competition runs until December 14 and the round robin begins on Monday.
