Clarence d Hobart

We went out to Richmond with Rob this afternoon to have a look at our first Tasmanian State League game. Once again, football in this state is trying to put aside parochial differences and run a single top level competition. As part of the outreach campaign they are taking occasional games to the countryside, like today.

Michael was asleep when we arrived and very cross when he woke up. I dragged him off to circumnavigate the ground, and he cheered up when he found some nice pine cones.

It was a beautiful day, and the struggling Hobart Tigers took it up to traditional powerhouse Clarence in the first half. By half time the Roos had their nose in front, then the 3rd quarter was one way traffic with 7 goals to none in Clarence's favour. The Tiges held it together in the last term, never threatening a comeback but not lying down either.

Five minutes before the bell we deserted the Tigers, and drove to the bakery for coffee and cake.
