MYRTLEFORD have been on a steady climb after a rough few seasons. BECK O'CONNELL chats with with Saints defender Grace Taberner to discuss their form and pushing to be competitive.
BO: Grace, you're one of the goal defence players for Myrtleford, you guys have improved a lot this season, how are you enjoying the year?
GT: It's better, getting a few wins and mostly having closer games. The games being way more competitive helps keep things more interesting.
BO: You only went down by five goals to Yarrawonga last round, that was an impressive result.
GT: It's definitely a stab in the guts though, when you lose by that much and you almost have it, but it's much better than getting smashed.
BO: You guys play the Wodonga Raiders this weekend, you sneaked in by one goal last time, do you anticipate it'll be another close game?
GT: I think it'll be a really tough game, but I feel like we've improved a lot since then. At the start of the season we were figuring out who would play what position, we were switching a lot from B-Grade to A-Grade, but we're a bit more settled now.
BO: You have co-coaches Lindy Singleton and Bridget Flint-Chapman this season, how do you find the contrast between the two?
GT: Very different, Lindy is very inspirational positive, Bridget is similar but has been helpful for me as a fellow defender.
BO: I hear you're not the only talented sportsperson in your family?
GT: We're all pretty at sport alright I guess. Yes, my brother plays for the Fremantle Dockers!
