NORADJUHA-QUANTONG ruckman Jack Vague was awarded this season’s champion footballer of the year at Monday night’s vote count.
Vague had a solid season in the ruck for the Bombers in a young side that showed plenty of improvement.
“We definitely have some really exciting young guys coming through,” he said.
“Hopefully they stick around and in a few years hopefully we are right up there. It’s been really fun this year.”

Vague said he had plenty of teammates that made his job a lot easier.
“Dusty Cross, Jason Kerr and Cam Bruce make it easy to ruck,” he said.
“They tell you where they want it and you just do your best. They are really fun to play with too.”
Vague said he had come up against some tough opposition this season.
“There are some really good ruckmen going around with Sam Cranna from the Storm and there are a couple of handy ones at Harrow-Balmoral too,” he said.
