Round 2 saw new League comers, O'Sullivan Beach - Lonsdale, venture across Adelaide to battle it out in wet conditions at Houghton Memorial Oval.
An enthused and well-fed crowd braved the season's first chilly conditions to see the HDFC Reserves notch up a convincing win. Final Score: 13.14 92 to 0.6 6.S. Best players included S. Fitzgerald, D. Keetch, L. Rayson, T. Almond and C. Thornton.
The A Grade put it to the flag favourites, and for the second week in a row, it came down to the wire. A kick after the siren didn't quite make the distance and the Raiders went down by 2 points. Final score: 10.1 61 to 9.9 63. Best players J. Davis, L. Anderson, B. Kratochwil, J. Currie, J. Mcmurtrie.
