AFL legend Brendan Fevola made his local football return over the Easter weekend, and was involved in a big way for Hastings in the Mornington Peninsula League.
Fevola had a massive 17 scoring shots, but struggled to convert his chances, kicking just 5.12 for the afternoon.
Thankfully for Hastings it didn’t cost them the game, as they still managed to run out 42-point winners over Devon Meadows.
“He actually surprised me, he was actually leading out really well,” Hastings coach Ricky Ferraro told the Frankston Standard Leader.
“I just assumed he would stay at home and want the ball to be kicked to his advantage, but straight away from the start he was he was leading up, he was quick over the first 10 metres and our delivery to him wasn’t too bad.
“Also, he took some really good one-on-one contested marks and he was just smart as well, when the ball was on the ground instead of just jumping on it he kicked it towards the goal and our boys got on the end of those toe pokes.”
It wasn’t a one-off game for Fevola, who is next scheduled to play for Hastings on May 4.
