Round 3: MRC 4.8.32 lost to Scotch Oakburn 7.15.57
Scotch travelled to Burnie for our first home game of the year and a decent crowd turned out to support the team. The MRC boys started slowly, kicking just 1 goal 3 for the first half to Scotch 6 goals 7. The team came out firing in the second half thanks to some spirited passion and effort from the boys, with a much more well-rounded performance. Scotch were looking nervous as MRC reduced the margin to 3 goals in the final quarter and looked to push on, however, inaccuracy eventually cost the team with Scotch running out winners. It was a strong team effort in the second half where MRC managed to win but left the team wanting more effort for the final games of the season.

Round 4: MRC 0.3.3 lost to The Hutchins School 19.20.134
Report by Jakhan Wells, Jackson Stubbs, Jonte Dixon
On 24 May we travelled down to Campbell Town via bus to play against Hutchins College. It was a horrible day with strong wind gusts and a very wet playing surface. Captain Jonte won the coin toss and decided to kick with the wind for the first quarter. In the first quarter, the boys showed promising signs as we kicked the first point of the game to go up 1-0. However, from this point onwards it was one way traffic as Hutchins had a 7-point lead at quarter time, after sneaking in a lucky goal from the pocket, kicking against an extremely strong breeze and some willing MRC defenders. The second quarter was one to forget as Hutchins used the wind to their advantage and put the foot down, kicking a mountain of goals to take a massive lead into half time. Although Hutchins was dominant in the second, you could not put any downfall on our backman’s effort, with repeat entries our backs didn’t make one goal easy for them making their shots on goal with lesser percentage shots. Going into halftime 60+ points down, the boys were keen to stay strong knowing they had the wind with them in the third. After Mr X gave the boys a rev up at halftime, the boys came out of the rooms with some energy again. Despite our best endeavours and strong efforts, things didn’t fall our way in the third with Hutchins outscoring us by 2 goals to 3 points. The fourth quarter was much the same as the first half and we ended the game goal less for the first time this season. Finn Peach was awarded best on ground for his work rate and determination in the loss, as he was a key asset to the team winning the ball out of the middle, despite some key players out of the side. One of the main takeaways from the game is that we need to run and carry the ball more, especially in windy and horrible conditions, and to also not bomb the ball long going into the forward line and actually find a presenting target. This coming Wednesday, we take on Grammar in the last game of the rostered season in what could possibly be our first win in two years.
Best: F. Peach, T. Spiewak, J. Dixon, J. Stubbs, W. Goninon, J. Wells

Round 4: MRC lost to Scotch
Unfortunately, due to player unavailability (sickness, injury), MRC was unable to field a team against Scotch, leading to a forfeit.
Round 5: MRC drew St Patricks College
The round 5 game was first postponed at the request of St Patricks, and then cancelled, with the teams deciding to share the points.
