Sports Legends Lunch fast approaching

Did you know that Mick Malthouse’s most favourite year of coaching career wan’t he premierships of 1992, 1994 or 2010, nor 1991 when his West Coast side dropped just three home and away games en route to a first grand final appearance.

It was 1987, when a young Footscray, having lost Brownlow medallist Brad Hardie to Brisbane and virtually broke, had been pummelled by a total of 42 goals in their first three games. Facing reigning premiers Hawthorn in round four, Malthouse tagged John Platten with Tony McGuinness, and convinced his troops they were in the hunt. Brian Cordy starred, Brian Royal kicked six goals, and the Dogs romped home by 41 points. They ended up missing out the finals by only half-a-game.

You have the chance to listen to such stories from the great man himself at our Sports Legends Lunch

Joining Malthouse, and agruably the headline act is Giants AFLW Captain Amanda Farrugia.  Born and raised in the western suburbs of Sydney, she began playing football in 2011 when she joined Macquarie University in the Sydney Women’s AFL. After a strong period with them, she was drafted by the Giants in the 2016 AFL Women’s draft and subsequently named the club’s inaugural AFL Women’s captain in January 2017.

Our final guest needs little introduction. Swans star and local resident Jude Bolton, will share his insights into the modern game.

They will be joined by local funny man, Simon Kennedy as our MC for the event.

We suggest you arrange a group of people to attend and purchase  a table together. Tickets can be purchased individually, with option of being allocated onto a specific table. Otherwise, tables of 8 or 10 can be purchased.

Meet Giants player Zac Langdon at training

We are lucky to have Zac Langdon visting the club this week.

He’ll be on hand to help out with some drills at Thursday’s training session, before hanging around to have a chat and sign some autographs.

Mature-age forward Zac Langdon has been a revolution this year for the Giants. He was selected at pick 56 in last year’s NAB AFL Draft and made his AFL debut in round one, kicking three goals in his first two games.

His game went to another level against Adelaide in round 6. His tallies of three goals, 13 disposals, seven contested possessions, seven uncontested, eight tackles and two inside 50s were all career-best statistics in a telling contribution to the Giants’ first win at Adelaide Oval.

Zac Langdon is a ready-made small forward who was drafted out of the WAFL playing for Claremont. He has huge endurance and showed enormous determination to make it on an AFL list. He has elite running and foot skills and is a highly-skilled player who pushes hard to impact up the ground as well as in the forward 50.

No games on this weekend. Except for those playing in the Rep sides. Good luck to all.

For those wondering what to do. Brave the crowds at Vivid. Visit the Powerhouse whilst its still located at Ultimo. Walk across the Harbour Bridge. Go flyfishing in a local creek. Geocaching is a fun activity. Are the Giants playing at home?

Tickets on sale for the Sports Legends Lunch

We are pleased to announce that tickets are now open for the LCC Sports Legends Lunch.

This year we have another great line up. Headling the lunch is AFL Legend Mick Malthouse. He is the record holder for the most games coached (718 games in total across four clubs), including 8 grand final appearances for 3 premierships (with West Coast and Collingwood). However, many forget he was also a very good footballer. He started his career in 1972, but excelled at Richmond where he played in six finals and the runaway premiership win over Collingwood in 1980.

We also have the privledge of having Giants AFLW Captain Amanda Farrugia.  Born and raised in the western suburbs of Sydney, she began playing football in 2011 when she joined Macquarie University in the Sydney Women’s AFL. After a strong period with them, she was drafted by the Giants in the 2016 AFL Women’s draft and subsequently named the club’s inaugural AFL Women’s captain in January 2017.

Our final guest needs little introduction. Swans star and local resident Jude Bolton, will share his insights into the modern game
