Rovers away to PEGS

This Saturday, the Seniors make the long journey to ‘the runway’ at Keilor Park to face PEGS, while the Thirds and U19s are at home.

Last time the two teams met, the reigning Premiers from division 1 were undefeated and the Rovers were far from disgraced. The boys will be looking for an ever better showing against the Essendon outfit this week on their home turf. Unavailability has plagued most teams in the VAFA and the Rovers side has seen plenty of changes in recent weeks, but confidence is strong following last week’s gutsy win over Parkdale.

Seniors kick-off at 2pm with the Reserves at 11:40am. The PEGS Sporting Fields are located at 127 Wright Road, Keilor Park. Live scores are available for the seniors game here.

The Senior Women start the day, against Old Geelong at Como Park – 9:30am start.

At Boss James Reserve, it’s a big milestone for the Chief! Michael Fletcher is pulling on the boots for game number 300. The Thirds/Development side host West Brunswick at 11am. If you’re not making the trip to Essendon then make sure you get along to the Boss.

The Under 19’s follow the Thirds, in a Bayside derby against top-side Beaumaris at 2pm. The Rovers U19s sit fourth (or equal second) on the Division 1 ladder and also had a strong hitout against the Sharks last time they met and will be looking to put in another solid performance.

Together with Beaumaris, the Rovers are getting behind ‘Dare to Hope’ at Saturday’s game. Read below for more info and how to donate.

  • July 22: Rovers $2K Day at the Boss. Don’t miss this great event – buy tickets >
  • Sept 1: 2023 Domino Luncheon – tickets available soon!

The U19s play Beaumaris at 2pm at the Boss tomorrow and both clubs are UNITED IN HOPE AGAINST PANCREATIC CANCER.  The Dear family has a close association with the Beaumaris Football Club and the Rovers have joined with them this year in promoting the Dare to Hope Match at the MCG this weekend to raise money for this worthy cause. 

This weekend’s clash between Hawthorn v Carlton will remember the life of Hawthorn Norm Smith Medallist, Paul Dear, at the second annual Dare to Hope Match to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.
Each year, more than 3,500 Australians die from this devastating cancer, claiming more lives than breast cancer, prostate cancer or melanoma. Dear was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in September 2020 and passed away on July 8 last year at the age of 55 – just 22 months after being diagnosed.

The Dear Family, together with the Pancare Foundation and Hawthorn FC, will unveil the Bay of Hope at the match –  a visual tribute to represent the thousands of Australians who die each year from pancreatic cancer. The unique installation has provided a way for families impacted by the disease to come together to shine a spotlight on the neglected cancer and show that their loved one’s matter.

How can you get involved? Make your donation to help support pancreatic cancer research and give hope to the thousands of families impacted each year. Visit to donate today.
