WorkSafe Country Championships success for RSM Bird Cameron CHFL 

 A dominant display from the first bounce provided the RSM Bird Cameron CHFL senior interleague side with an excellent victory over the Horsham &DFNL.

Under excellent management from coach Greg Middleton and his coaching panel the squad very quickly fitted into the roles which all had been given and they were never challenged for the lead and apart for 5 goals in ten minutes at the start of the third quarter the HDFNL never had any momentum.

The pressure applied was extreme across the whole ground and it is unlikley that any team has been able to effect as many smoothers as occurred in this match.

No player in the list of 23 was unable to have a contribution on the day and the leadership of captain Jarrod Morgan and vice captain Brenton Powell was superb. 

A particular highlight was the involvement of Joel Maher, Nich Weightman and Justin Simpson in this team. Three players who participated regularly in the junior interleague program for the league and this year graduated to be part of probably the best senior interleague side which the CHFL has put out on the ground.

A great win from a group committed to furthering the reputation of the CHFL as a league which is continuing to improve every year.

Cutting Edge Joinery Under 17.5 start the day on the right note 

 The CHFL Cutting Edge Joinery Under 17.5 interleague side got the day of to a great start at the WorkSafe Country Championships in Horsham with an impressive 67 point win against the Horsham &DFNL.

After two years of not having another league to compete against in the championships it was clear that the players under the direction of coach Mick Rix relished the chance to play as a unit representing the league.

There was clear committment to work for each other and by quarter time a 24 point lead set the tone for the rest of the match.

Well done to all who took part and represented the CHFL so excellently.
