IF ever there has been a player who owns the title Mr Smooth look no further than our own classy Peter Yagmoor, whose left-foot and precise decision-making is beyond reproach in the NEAFL.

The talented Bomber is the very epitome of the worldly traveller, yet at the still tender age of 23, he has plenty of rough and tumble, exciting and action-packed footballing adventures ahead of him.

It’s a judgemental statement, to be sure, but I’ll stick my neck out and declare there hasn’t been a better kick in the seven-year history of the NEAFL.

THERE was a time during the opening stages of this NEAFL season when Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds felt he was personally responsible for the Bombers’ frustrating and at times devastating start when the club put together a horrendous run of five successive losses.

He had just been appointed Redlands’ captain and like the rest of the playing group was looking to 2017 with a controlled sense of confidence and hearty anticipation.

Those early season road bumps hit hard – very hard.

Paul’s campaign against senseless youth violence wins backing of Redland Bombers

Report: Jeff Stephenson

PAUL Stanley has spent the best part of 10 years trying to get his message across to thousands of Queensland teenagers the devastation that can result from youth violence and the overbearing grief one punch can bring.

It has become his reason for being.

The programs he has fronted and the hundreds of talks he gives around the State impress upon Year 12 students the notion of non-violence and youthful respect among young people.

TWO kicks. That’s all it took. From when Peter Yagmoor barrelled a ripper 70-metre torpedo from full-back at the Gabba on Sunday with no apparent effort; to when Aaron Christensen grabbed possession, messed up his handball, re-gathered and goaled from 45-metres on an acute angle.

It was as classic a piece of Australian football as you could hope to see.

THE annual Harry Woodrow Memorial Golf Day has been held at Redland Bay Golf Club with a maximum field of 140 players and an enticing prize at the tough 13th hole that almost went the way of exciting Bombers’ footballer Campbell Walker.

The prize – a luxurious Volkswagen V6 Amarok – meant every player really put his head down on the tee in a bid to pull off the much-sought hole-in-one.

WHEN misfortune strikes the one – then the two – inevitably it can lead to someone else’s very good fortune indeed.

Such is the case in point for Redland ruckman Jarrod Huddy, who has grabbed his NEAFL opportunity with his two very big hands, rueing, for sure, the demise of his two mentors in the one instance and making every post a winner in the other.

While injuries have now anointed him and James O’Donnell as the Bombers’ key ruckmen, Jarrod made his debut in the opening round against Canberra Demons.

Willow hits career-best form for Bombers

REDLAND defender Adrian Williams thinks the last month and a bit has seen him play his best football in his five years with the Bombers and is confident the rich vein will continue to flourish as the season hits the all-important run home.

The ex-Tasmanian has been the Bombers’ most consistent player over this period playing strong possession footy at centre half-back, while negating the play of some of the NEAFL’s most damaging key forwards in the process.

Report: Jeff Stephenson

LONG-TERM injuries to both of Redland’s key ruckmen have put a dampener on the club’s prospects for the second half of the NEAFL season, but have provided an opportunity for up and coming prospect Dylan Adkins.
