This column has sung praise for Wolves keeper Justin Pasfield already this season so it came as absolutely no surprise to see him scoop the pool at the club’s awards night over the weekend.
Justin walked away with a clean-sweep of first grade’s major accolades by winning the player of the year, players’ player of the year and manager’s award.
For anyone who saw him play this year, it would have come as no shock.
He was top shelf from start to finish and was fittingly rewarded.
Bravo to Ethan Cambosis as well.
Ethan won both the rookie of the year and the under-20s player of the year. He’s got a really bright future and will hopefully continue playing a big part for the club in year’s to come.
Congratulations are also well deserved for Patrick Antelmi (golden boot) Brendon Krcanoski (under-18s player of the year) on what was a tremendous celebration of the season.
- DROUGHT BREAKER
Bulli would have to consider this year as one of their best chances in recent times to break a 30-year grand final title drought.
That’s no slight on Port Kembla, but Bulli have been the pacesetters virtually since day dot and will deservedly go into the decider as title favourites.
They’ve already claimed the Bert Bampton Cup and League Championship titles this season.
An elusive grand final crown would be the cherry on-top and you’d think they will go in confident of taking it home.
Of course, Port won’t make that job easy.
Noel Spencer will have them up for a good fight and they’ve shown throughout this final series that they are capable of handling the pressure of a big occasion.
