The forecast morning rain never showed, allowing Springfield Park to play host to a dry but soft surface, as the Whitehorse Pioneers fell at a hurdle from the ruthless Park Orchards Sharks, and going down 12.10 (82) to 17.19 (121).

Billings & Raines collide in a tough contest on ANZAC Day (photo: AFL Media)
It has been a while since I took some sort of “point out a problem” stand on Beyond Realisation. This time around, the target is the Brisbane Lions.
