Well, after a massive defeat at the hands of the Cats last week, the Kangaroos (Gypsy and Tasha's team) have bounced back (ha ha... get it?) to score a very strong victory against the Hawks tonight. So Yoggie, mate, your team's out of the running now, sorry. It was a tough and very physical encounter, quite close throughout until the last quarter, when the Kangaroos took the game away from the Hawks' reach. The final score: 14.9.93 to 8.12.60. So next week, the Kangaroos play Port Adelaide (Sooty's team) for a place in the Grand Final.
What's the 'Shinboner spirit'? Well, a million years ago, the Kangaroos were known as the Shinboners, because many of the men who played for them worked at a local meatworks (yum!). This team is particularly known for its tough, never-say-die spirit, which has come to be known as the 'Shinboner spirit'. They sure showed it tonight!
Only 3 more games of footy left for the whole year! Who will win the Premiership? The Cats, Port Power, the Magpies or the Kangaroos? Stay tuned to find out! Finalists, your team needs your support... get behind them!
