Each week Robbie Dowling and former Blacks and Whites manager Eddie Scally cast their eye over all the action from the weekend’s senior, intermediate, and junior league and championship games as well as looking ahead to the next round of action.
In the eight-episode, we look back at a bumper weekend of championship action that included Tullaroan’s exit in the first round.
