Rhino, Hollywood Impress In Kick To Kick:
19th February 2007
Bangkok -

Exciting Reds full forward Allan “Hollywood” Sharman and reigning best and fairest Ryan “Rhino” Collett have put in impressive performances in the Tiger’s first serious hitout of the year at Patana International School grounds yesterday.

 
In hot and sunny conditions the pair looked sharp as they coolly contested a number of balls, talked up their games and gave a few nervous backmen something to think about with their strong leaping and marking. Although failing to hold too many balls Collett showed he is prepared to jump early and according to onlookers has the tools to jump even earlier when the real stuff finally gets underway next week. In a bonus for the reds Collett appears to have laid off the pies and chips over Christmas and is obviously buoyed by his team’s acquisition of former rival Jeff “Slimey” Pearman.

At the other end of the field Hollywood Allan Sharman moved well and was the only player to provide a leading target and in a sign of things to come was eager to run at blokes and push them around.

This season is shaping up as an important one for the 27 year old who despite winning last season’s goal kicking award with a notable 4.2 goals a game average has struggled to shake doubts over his physical toughness on the field. On yesterdays evidence however he looks ready to step up in 2007.

“He is a bit confused about what to do with his sideburns!” said international captain Geoff “Dog” Everett who liked what he saw from Sharman. Everett then went on to add that Blues leader Alan “Yoda” Sutherland could have been the first player ever reported in kick to kick after being hit (“coat-hangered”) off the ball by the baby faced veteran. Despite suggesting “…it felt like bird droppings it was that soft!” Everett was clearly upset by the incident.

“The first word that comes to mind is "cheat". It was like back in the old school days with 20 blokes trying to take a speccy and no one was willing to stand in front. Everyone was standing back on the fence!”

With Blues players proving to be serviceable at best in the keenly contested affair Sutherland was nonetheless happy declaring “I picked players on availability and we had many players available today”.

Sutherland expects Everett to be available next week.

In other news Brendan “Goose” Cunnigham has managed to run down 2005 best and fairest Benny “Mango” Will for the second time in as many weeks. Will was unavailable for comment last night but a source close to him reported that he is doing everything possible to get his body right for the rigours of international football and looks forward to the challenge of playing a resurgent Malaysia in two weeks time.
