Leongatha will be without Aaron Heppell for Saturday’s second semi-final against Traralgon at Moe and Wonthaggi star, Jack Blair, will be missing from the Power’s line-up on Sunday. The Parrots’ youngster is required by Essendon’s Reserves and Blair has been named for Collingwood in the VFL. ‘Azza’ Heppell will start on the wing for the Bombers who are playing against the Footscray Bulldogs in a semi-final at North Port Oval on Saturday. He’s played the past four matches for Essendon’s Reserves including last week’s elimination final win against the Casey Scorpions. Prior to that, Heppell, who is on Essendon’s VFL list, had been an integral part of the Parrots’ successful season.
Wonthaggi will also be without Jack Blair who has been named in a forward pocket for the Second Semi Final match against Sandringham at North Port Oval at 11.40am on Sunday, September 13, also the day Wonthaggi Power plays Maffra at Traralgon. The supporters of both clubs wish these aspiring young players well, but they’d also like to have seen them in their respective home colours too.
