Simon Nunan’s senior colts fell short of Premiership glory at Lobethal on Saturday. The Joeys held a 2 goal lead into the final quarter and looked set to take home the trophy. A bitter pill to swallow, as the Roos were arguably the better team on the day; yet the scoreboard and record books will reflect Hahndorf as Premiers running out winners by a solitary goal. Action pics from the game to follow later this week.
