MacKillop congratulates our WRFL Umpires

20 April 2012 by

As part of an AFL initiative to enable junior umpires to experience the inner sanctum of the umpire’s rooms during the NAB Cup, four MacKillop students attended the Hawthorn v Melbourne clash at Etihad Stadium on 10 March 2012.

Shannon Colgan, Shamus Dundon, Stefan Bjelosevic and Ryan Webster are junior Western Region Football League (WRFL) umpires.  Upon arrival at the ground they were escorted by the match manager into the umpires’ rooms at Etihad Stadium. The students were present as the AFL field umpires were addressed by two of their coaches, former AFL umpires Rowan Sawyers and Adam Davis.  Shannon, Shamus, Stefan and Ryan also joined the AFL Umpires in their warm-up on the ground.  The students were grateful to have such an experience and appreciated the opportunity to represent the WRFL Junior umpires at the match.
