“YOU KNOW – FOOTY JUST ‘SUCKS’ SOMETIMES”

It was like watching an old-time drama movie backwards at “Cinema Schramms” last Saturday when the Doncaster Sharks, having led handsomely throughout the match, got over-run by North Ringwood in the last minutes of the game to lose by 5 pts! And the movie had to be the 1965 Hollywood blockbuster “The Agony and the […]

SHARKS BITTEN BY ICY BALWYN BLAST!

On a bitterly cold Melbourne Saturday our Doncaster boys travelled to Balwyn Park last weekend, only to be “frozen-out” by an ice-cool, near-strength Balwyn outfit to the tune of 47 points.  The defeat, which ended a 3-game winning streak by the Sharks, was a disappointing result for all concerned as our second half ball-handling, confidence […]

HOT TODDY SOOTHES SHARK SCORING SORE

On a Saturday when a total of just 10 goals were scored by both sides in more than 110 minutes of footy, it took a stand-out performance from one senior Shark to be the key difference in Doncaster’s 21 point senior win over local rival, Doncaster East, at Schramms Reserve.  Our ‘quiet assassin’, hot Toddy […]

STRONGER SHARKS SECURE SECOND SCALP

Buoyed by the recent win over Berwick and the return of some senior players, our Doncaster firsts on Saturday outlasted a ‘high-flying’ Norwood to score a hard-fought 7-point win at Schramms. And in doing so the Sharks have continued our historical dominance over the Norsemen, winning 7 of the last 8 games and stretching our […]

SUPER ‘SPENCE’ SPARKS SHARK SUCCESS

A superb best-on-ground performance by Supershark ruckman, Jake Spencer, drove the Doncaster Sharks to their first win of the season with a hard-fought 19 pt victory over newcomer Berwick at Schramms last Saturday. Rapidly becoming a premier ruckman of the EFNL, ‘Big Spence’ dominated the packs and around the ground in one of the finest […]

“SHARK TALE OF TWO HALVES!”

The dictionary defines a ‘shark tale’ as a ridiculously fictitious piece of storytelling.  So, wouldn’t it be fun to dream a little, and tell a Shark’s tale of a sensational come-from-behind Doncaster victory in the 2H of last Saturday’s senior match at Vermont –in much the same way it really did happen back in the […]

SHARKS SCORCHED BY RED-HOT BURNERS

The Blackburn footy club – 2019 runners-up in Premier division – well and truly showed their true colours at Schramms on Saturday with an impressive red-hot display all day which blacked out any hope of either of our Doncaster teams breaking through for a morale-boosting win. In recent years, the Shark/Burner rivalry has seen a […]

SHARKS STUMBLE WITH SUSPECT STEAM SUPPLY

It was a measured approach by Doncaster senior coach, Stewie K, when addressing his players after the Sharks had tumbled to a 47pt loss to local rival East Doncaster at Zerbes Reserve last Saturday. ‘Kemps’ made it clear that while our young team (still missing 5 regular senior players) had played some good footy during […]

REALITY BITE FOR BULLDOG-BITTEN SHARKS

The expectations of a healthy improvement in playing strength of the Doncaster Sharks in 2021 took a considerable jolt last Saturday when we were well-beaten by an impressive South Croydon team to the tune of 69 points at Cheong Park. Yes, there were several experienced Sharks missing from this Round 1 action and yes, ‘one […]
