AFL games-record holder Brent Harvey and Hawthorn legend Peter Knights are heading east to AFL Yarra Ranges this weekend for the fifth WorkSafe Game of the Month on Sunday July 16.
As far as mid-season blockbusters go they don’t come much bigger for Healesville and Olinda Ferny Creek than this Sunday’s Round 12 clash.
Not only will the pair be fighting to solidify their place on top of the Division 1 ladder, but they will also be battling it out for the fifth WorkSafe Game of the Month title.
Big crowds are expected at Don Road Sporting Complex for the AFL Yarra Ranges Division 1 clash between first and third at 2:30pm
AFL games-record holder Brent Harvey and Hawthorn legend Peter Knights will be in attendance to watch the big match that could go a long way to deciding the AFL Yarra Ranges Division 1 competition’s Top 3.
Playing 264-games for the Hawthorn Football Club, Peter Knights is one of the longest standing WorkSafe Game of the Month ambassadors, while Northern Knights product Brent Harvey has the most AFL games played by any TAC Cup draftee.
The match is one of eight WorkSafe Game of the Month matches scheduled in leagues across the state this year, with the next match set to be held on Sunday July 23 between Central Highlands Football Netball League’s Daylesford and Gordon.
The WorkSafe Games of the Month are an important feature on the country football calendar, helping to highlight the importance of work-place safety to small communities such as Healesville and Olinda.
Just as WorkSafe are committed to supporting country football, so too are they committed to a vision of every Victorian returning home safely every day.
