GEN NOW: Kickaholics Take Out Taringa Mixed Final

Kickaholics Anonymous have ended the two-year reign of Next-Gen Untouchables with a come from behind win on Tuesday night.

The former mixed champions had footing for the majority of the match before a classy tip-on from Jacob McMahon sent Emily Collison-Bell over in the corner to ice the game with just seconds remaining.

The shock loss was Untouchables’ first since March 2018 and Kickaholics’ first over the juggernaut team.

The hunter has now become the hunted…

Next-Gen Untouchables were the first to score via the boot of former Tigers Rep player Luke Dudgell in the 10th minute.

The frantic nature of Kickaholics attack gave plenty of opportunity to Untouchables who capitalised moments later through the experience of Tim Christie.

A rare direct rucking set produced Kickaholics’ first points with Joel Pham breaking the line to send speedster Trent Gossner pouring past the fullback.

All the good work was undone soon after with Lincoln Redgen nabbing an intercept and running 40 metres extend his side’s lead to 3-1 before the break.

A more composed Kickaholics side emerged from the break and it didn’t take long before they capitalised through Tiff Hodson.

Two repeat sets on the goal line provided enough opportunity for Isaac Toohey to grubber into the in-goal before handing off to Hodson for a two-point try.

Trent Gossner put his side in front for the first time in the match with a brilliant solo length of the field effort.

With Untouchables in unchartered territory and without their two biggest names, the green machine looked a little edgy.

Next-Gen Untouchables. Kickaholics AnonymousA confidence boosting trio of repeat sets put their opponents’ goal line defence to the test. Untouchables levelled the scores with Lincoln Redgen pouncing on a short kick in the in-goal.

Tim Christie would cross for his second two minutes later, grounding a contested loose ball.

With Next-Gen out of the doldrums, Kickaholics reverted to their first half ways. A number of missed opportunities on the back of some frantic and often high-risk expansive play.

Back to back sets on the goal line in the final minute carried the trend of the game and proved to be the achillies heel of both sides, finishing with Untouchables.

In the end, it was Emily Collison-Bell who came away with the spoils.

Well done to Kickaholics Anonymous who defeated Next-Gen Untouchables 6-5.

Congratulations to Skittles who defeated Rampage 6-3 in a hotly contested mixed two grand final on Tuesday.

Skittles. Kickaholics AnonymousThe newcomers endured a much tougher task to make the finals after a semi-final extra-time replay against Slap Happy.

The Skittles would prevail after winning 2-1 across both extra time periods.

Rampage made it to the final dance for the second season in a row. Last season’s opposition, Dugongs put a dent to their grand final aspirations – a move that was repeated by Skittles.

It wasn’t all one way traffic as Rampage opened the scoring through South Brisbane rep players Antony Tatkovic and Tom Primmer.

Skittles captain Seigo Tanaka levelled the scores shortly after with a kick up the sideline. His partner in crime SJ Siva dove over soon after to give his side the lead.

End to end footy showcased some of the best talent on display with scores locked up at 2-1 heading into halftime.

A revitalised Skittles outfit returned to their traditional touch footy ways, driving the ball into enemy territory with ease and shoring up the middle third in defence. SJ Siva put Ani Bhardwaj over for his first with a ruck and split inside the 10.

SJ crossed for the second on the next possession by planting down a grubber from his captain.

Rampage was dealt a triple blow in quick succession with Ani Bhardwaj crossing for his second to extend the lead to 5-1.

Before the game could fall into a lull in the final quarter, multiple players were sin binned for bringing the game into disrepute.

Winger Brett Coghill scooped up a grubber of his own to ice the game, before a late consolation try to Annaleis Tatkovic who fed off a Anthony Tatkovic, kept the scores close.

Well done to Skittles on their first Kick It Grand Final win!

Skittles: SJ Siva (2), Ani Bhardwaj (2), Seigo Tanaka, Brett Coghill
Rampage: Tom Primmer, Annaleis Tatkovic

Maroons Prevail Over True Blues

2019 Kick It Origin Queensland Maroons.
The Kick It Queensland Maroons have triumphed in a thrilling Origin match on Wednesday night, but not for some late heroics from a hungry Blues outfit.
2019 Kick It Origin. Chloe Storm Try. Maroons.

Blues’ Chloe Storm try (36th minute).

Best and fairest Chloe Storm brought those in attendance to their feet in the final five minutes with an outstanding solo try to get within one point of the Maroons.

A plethora of errors and ruck infringements gifted the Blues great field position to ensure the grandstand finish.

Some stout goal line defence in a pressure-cooker environment helped the Maroons secure their fourth mixed Origin crown.


On paper the New South Wales Blues boasted their best line up to date with seven representative stars in their ranks.

Captain Isaac Parker and vice Shaun Tupou helped steer the side around the park and proved to be a crucial link to their quicker outside players.

Defence was the key and it showed in the opening 10 minutes with the Blues holding strong on their own goal line despite numerous repeat sets for the Maroons.

Blues’ communication could be heard from the far side of the field and on the Origin live steam as the team with nothing to lose put it to the reigning champions.

But as the saying goes, you can’t keep a champion (side) down for long.

Some rare space on the wing after an intense set of rucking produced the first try of the match. A ruck and split from Jess Sleep sent speedster Craig Hunt over in the corner after 12 minutes.

The frantic nature of the match calmed as both teams settled into their work. End to end footy saw a quick, free-flowing brand which was great to watch.

Two forced goal line drop outs a saw the Maroons starved of possession and camped on their own goal line.

An intercept from Chris Honnery gave his side a much-needed reprieve, but the joy was short lived.

On the next possession the Blues drove the ball back into Maroon’s territory before receiving a ruck penalty on the fifth touch.

Nicholas Edwards came pouring through a hole off the tap re-start only to have his grubber to Beau Hess knocked down by fullback Matt McIver. The Blues’ efforts were undone with a knock on to start the next set.

Some fresh subs and a heavy dose of rucking from Ben Burstow, Tammy Haydock and Eliza Mooney got the Maroons in good field possession. A penalty for slapping at the ball in the ruck, followed by a force goal line drop out turned the screws on New South Wales.

The Blue wall collapsed moments before halftime with a lovely worked sweep play from Craig Hunt to create an overlap for Toowoomba Rep star Kohen Mathiesen to pass to Matt McIver to score.

2019 Kick It Origin. New South Wales Blues vs Queensland Maroons.

A rejuvenated Blues side opened the scoring in the second half on their first possession via captain Isaac Parker who pounced on a grubber of his own.

As the game began to open up, a host of near-try opportunities occured. Nicholas Edwards had two cracks at the line followed by Shane Griffin and Corey Pocock.

Queensland had their own chances go begging with experienced rep player Brayden Barrett touching the sideline as he received a pass from Craig Hunt with the goal line open.

Jacob McMahon foiled a perfectly worked ruck and split from former teammates Jayden Turnbull and Jess Sleep.

2019 Kick It Origin. Jess Sleep Try. Maroons.

Queensland’s Jess Sleep scores (29th minute).

Kohen Mathiesen and Gerard Martin each had a chance as the possession swung once again.

A quick dummy half scoot from Chris Honnery who passed to Jess Sleep who stepped inside two would-be defenders, pushed the lead out to 4-1.

The Maroon’s three-point lead was short lived as Chloe Storm lit up the Origin highlight reel once again as the match hit fever pitch.

Joeys Leap To Mens Victory

Joeys
Joeys have defeated long-time rivals P-Dub in a hotly contested mens final on Wednesday night.

It was the fourth time these two teams had met each other in grand final matches with their opponent holding a 2-1 advantage.

Reigning champions P-Dub stuck first though Sam Gadsby who dove between two would-be defenders inside the first five minutes.

The hit-back was swift through Maroons stud Jayden Turnbull who grubbered for himself to score.

It was deja vu for the boys in yellow with Joeys’ own Jason West producing a carbon copy of the first try to edge his side in front on the scoreboard.

Some stout defence from Joeys’ middle men Matthew Allen, Ben Hayes and Tristan Bell-Blissner ensured their opponent couldn’t add to their first half total.

A true testament to these two teams was on show with a heavy dose of rucking through the middle of the field.

Maroons’ rookie Bill Chisholm and Jarrod Clayton looked likely around the ruck, while Matt O’Brien and Luke Murray played off the back of their momentum.

Back-to-back errors from P-Dub gifted Joeys key field position and they made them pay.

A lovely worked backline move that went through four sets of hands saw Dylan Bone cross in the corner from a Dave Webster draw and pass.

Joeys skipped to a 4-1 lead on the next set with Jason West producing a marvellous bat-back of a ball that was heading over the sideline, only to have it sit in the in-goal for Mason Hasselmeyer to ground the ball.

A rash of ruck infringements and repeat sets on the Joeys’ goal line took its toll through P-Dub captain Joe Warren who crossed for his side’s second try with four minutes remaining.

Mens leading try scorer Corey Pocock was kept quiet for much of the match until he scooped up a loose ball to scoot 50 metres untouched to ice the game.

A late consolation try from Joe Warren to Jack Woodbridge on the final play of the match was all in vain.

Well done to Joeys on their 5-3 Mens Grand Final win. It is now 2-2 in final matches between these two teams.

Joeys: Jayden Turnbull, Jason West, Dylan Bone, Mason Hasselmeyer, Corey Pocock
P-Dub: Sam Gadsby, Joe Warren, Jack Woodbridge
Best and Fairest: Joe Warren
Player of the Match: Matthew Allen.

Ballers Straight Up Ball’ To Claim Mixed Title

Ballers. Kick It Touch.
Ballers have re-gained the Stafford Mixed title with an emphatic 11-2 win over Too Out Of Touch on Wednesday night.

Sitting on top of the table after the fixture rounds, Ballers were faced with an uphill battle with the absence of their captain and Queensland Origin representative Jess Sleep. Those fears were put to rest early as her side raced to an early 5-0 lead.

Middle men Jake Coolwell and Vanni Lettieri ensured the scoreboard ticked over regularly as the pair combined for six tries and three try assists.

Queensland star Brayden Barrett grabbed two of his own in the final hit out before the July 17th Origin match.

Jake Coolwell opened the scoring by stepping through some feeble defence in the opening two minutes. His trademark step would be on full display as he put on Brayden Barrett’s second try and Adriano Gaile’s first, late in the second half.

Player of the match Vanni Lettieri scored two of his own off the boot, before putting in a lovely kick down the sideline for Brayden Barrett to race away and score.

A chip and chase on the siren yielded Lettieri a first half hat-trick and killed off any momentum Too Out Of Touch had heading into the break.

Too Out Of Touch Kick It Touch Football. Ballerz. 2019

Coming off an upset win over second placed Slappers in last week’s semi-final, Too Out Of Touch had nothing to lose heading into the second half.

Jack Newton drew first blood after pouncing on a ricocheted kick in the in-goal by Chris Honnery.

The joy with short-lived with Lettieri notching up his fourth try of the match, before a near-length of the field effort from Ben Hayes blew the score out once again.

Queensland debutant Chris Honnery would stem the flow touching down off a crisp short ball from Shannyn Hermann.

The result was sealed moments later when Jake Coolwell latched onto errant pass and ran 45 metres score, followed by a Zac Jane try assist to send Brad McKinlay over for his first try of the season.
