1. 2020 Recap

The Bombers looked lost at times in 2020,. Their game style was unclear and it wasn’t obvious to fans how their team was going to win games of football. They managed to get Joe Daniher back on the park, but the key forward has since headed north and the club will be looking to fill the void.

Sam Draper and Jordan Ridley were the key highlights with the latter taking out the club Best & Fairest. Ridley was solid down back all year in what was his first full season in the team.

The Bombers found themselves under the pump with John Worsfold and Ben Rutten splitting the coaching duties, a plan that didn’t seem to do either man any good.

They were out of the finals discussion a long way before the season’s end and it was hard to see what way the Bombers would be travelling.
