Down the Guts

I took this photo at the 2005 round 20 match between the Bullants and Werribee in the VFL. Both teams had good years, and eventually played off against one another in that years preliminary final. With top 4 positions still up for grabs, this match seemed a forgone conclusion as I took this picture, with the final term about to begin and the home side, “Preston”, a good 40+ points to the good. Yet Werribee rallied, and stellar quarters from J-Pod (no.18, far left, now with Geelong) and Patrick Bowden saw the Bees pull off one of the more remarkable wins of recent time in the VFA/VFL.
