VFL: Blues too good for Coburg.

on . Posted in Blog

The Northern Blues have proved too much for Coburg in round three of the Peter Jackson VFL at Piranha Park running away in the last quarter to win by 62 points - 21.15.141 to 11.13.79. It was the Vicki Cleary Tribute match, raising awareness in support of violence against women, an issue close to the heart of the Lion's former champion player/coach and VFL legend, Phil Cleary, who tragically lost his sister to domestic violence back in 1987.

An emotional Cleary spoke to the crowd thanking them for their support; he was flanked by 2015 Australian of The Year and prominent campaigner against violence towards women, Rosie Batty. A minute’s silence was then held before the first bounce to remember Vicki and other victims of domestic violence.
