Ms BURKE (1:48 PM) —There was wonderful news on the weekend: the Box Hill Hawks won their way into the 2003 VFL grand final. We are very much looking forward to the Box Hill Hawks—hopefully—on Sunday winning their second flag in three seasons. It was a fantastic day. The match started in overcast and blustery conditions, with Box Hill kicking a three-goal wind advantage in the first quarter. It looked like it was not going to go our way at half-time but, thanks to the efforts of Box Hill coach Tony Liberatore and some fantastic players on the field—the best player for Box Hill being the hardworking midfielder Brad Sewell, who also won the best player award from the ABC TV commentators—it did. Sewell amassed over 30 possessions, kicking two goals, and made some important tackles. The game was well worth watching, and I want to send to the boys down at Box Hill a big cheerio. I hope that we will regain the flag next Sunday, because my other team, Richmond, has well and truly let me down this year!
