Records Are Meant To Be Broken

It will be a big day at PC Payne Park on Saturday afternoon when Bunbury host Harvey Bulls, in round twelve of the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL premiership season.

Round twelve is Indigenous Round, supported by Alcoa, with both team boasting great indigenous players in not only their League teams but across all four teams that will play on Saturday.

Although there is a game to be won, all eyes will be on Jesse Gribble when he runs out onto PC Payne Park for the 269th time, breaking the all time games record for Bunbury, which has been held by Mick Shinner for more than three decades.

Gribble, a two time Hayward Medalist, has represented Western Australia five times, has won five premierships with the SWFL at the Country Championships, is a six times club fairest and best winner, has won the Pike Medal for the best player in a grand final twice, is a Premiership player and Life Member of the Bunbury Football Club.   The accolades will come thick and fast, but first and foremost, Gribble will be looking to help his beloved Bulldogs defeat the Harvey Bulls.

Earlier in the season, Bunbury defeated the Bulls by 34 points, but since then fortunes have gone in opposite directions for both clubs.  Bunbury have hit top form, while the Bulls have just come off a huge loss at the hands of Busselton.

A wounded Bull can be dangerous, so Bunbury won’t take Harvey lightly, but with a milestone of such significance, Bunbury will pull out all stops to be victorious on Saturday.
