Great effort once again boys, against the second rate filth.
But FMD, Laverde!! Has made an honest effort lately but poor bugger's been cut down every time ](*,)
McKernan, Stewart, Raz (?) Brown and now Laverde. Big weight on Franga next week. I guess Langford has to come back too. At least he can kick straight sometimes.
Cant wait for Draper's debut vingertje vingertje .
And.. knock knock: who's there?: Amos: Amos who?... A-Mosquito! He's coming and I'm hoping he's as tough as nails!

First VFL game I've seen much of this year.
Draper looks as promising as everyone has been talking about. McNiece was great today. Begley moved well and did some nice things. And although he didn't do much, I liked the look of Gown as well.
Actually quite a lot of talent there today.

Match report from today...
Essendon VFL has held off a fast-finishing Collingwood outfit by 37 points to continue its unbeaten start to 2019.

The top-of-the-table Bombers kicked a six-goal-to-one second term, ultimately sealing the 15.12 (102) to 9.11 (65) Anzac win at Windy Hill on Saturday afternoon.

Essendon got on the board early through a Jayden Laverde goal just two minutes in, before some hard running from Kyle Langford (25 disposals, one goal) set up Jordan Houlahan (10 disposals, three goals) with a shot of his own.

Things turned sour when Laverde came off late in the first with a hamstring complaint, but being one down on rotations early didn’t seem to phase the boys.

The Bombers weren’t afraid of taking the game on by using the corridor to their advantage, which worked a treat for them in the first half.

Irving Mosquito (one goal) was a prime example, using his speed to not only close in on his opponents, but to create space and opportunities inside 50.

Essendon had immense pressure across the ground and set up well behind the ball, which left Collingwood struggling to get past the centre circle.

Down by 52 points at the main break, the Magpies were able to turn things around and outscore the Bombers in the second half.

But their chase had been left too late, as Essendon responded to the challenge by matching each of Collingwood’s fourth-quarter goals with one of its own.

Anzac Medal winner Ben McNiece (26 disposals) defended well across half-back, while Nino Lazzarro (14 disposals) and Sam Draper (18 disposals, 47 hit-outs) also had a good impact on the game.

Vice-captain Danny Younan (19 disposals) was brilliant around stoppages, while Dylan Clarke (24 disposals, one goal) and Langford made great decisions and used the footy well.

Senior coach Dan Jordan was impressed with the club’s start to the season, which now reads as three wins from as many games and first position on the ladder.

“We’re really happy with the three games we’ve played. Our first half was exceptional today in terms of how we moved the ball and our pressure around the contest,” Jordan said.

“To Collingwood’s credit, they lifted after half-time and really challenged us in the second half.

“It was probably the first time we’ve been challenged in that area, so it was good to see our boys build into a more basic, contested type of footy and respond to that.”

Jordan said the boys were “keen on asserting their authority early”, and if the scoreboard at the main break was anything to go by, they were successful in doing so.

“(I think our early dominance) stemmed from our work around the contest, our work on the outside and being able to get some clearances, and also having some smart ball use and converting,” he said.

“Benny (McNiece) was outstanding across half-back, he’s been building into some really nice form and has progressively been getting better every week. I’m happy to see him put in a really solid game.”

Looking ahead, Jordan acknowledged it was still early days in “the long season”.

“We’ve got some really good sides coming up in the next month, so we’ll definitely find out a bit more about our group during that period,” he said.

Essendon VFL has another seven-day turnaround before facing Geelong in a curtain-raiser to the Country Game at 11:50am on Sunday, May 5 at the MCG.

I have an iPhone App called Footy Live which allows you to view match day information about each game including player stats. You can change the league to VFL to get restricted information compared to AFL, but it has information on all match stats and seasonal player stats. I've attached some screens to preview before you download in case this is not what you're after.

Thanks heaps. Even saved me the bother of looking it up myself (this time) as I just wanted to know Begley's stats - and they're on your screenshot! :)
But I've found a version for Android so have downloaded it for future use.
Begley looked good to me, but didn't get a mention in the Match Report. I'm thinking he could replace Myers V Cats.

Just curious.

Are there any Thursday Night Games on the VFL Fixtures?

7’s got the WAFL arseing about 2 or 3 times,which is fine on a Public Holiday,but not at the height of Winter.

I’ll be at Darts on August 1,thanks!

None that comes to mind. Mostly Friday and the occasional weekend.
