The Rockdogs & The Megahertz draw the Community Cup




For only the third time in its 20-year history, the Community cup has ended in a draw. With equal amounts of blood, sweat and beer spilt of the field by both teams it only seems fitting that a final goal after the siren to was balance the scores. With a huge record crowd of 10,000 + people supporting the game, it was a huge success for the charity partner Reclink, who’ll receive a record $100,000 windfall.

The annual football match between local musicians “The Rockdogs” and “The Megahertz” (a team comprised of PBS FM and Triple R presenters) was set in picture perfect conditions at Elsternwick Park, Melbourne.

Coming down to the wire, the final siren sounds with Triple R Breakfasters presenter Stew Farrell booting the levelling goal post siren to take the scores to  4.4.28 a piece.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard smashed out a rocking half-time set, followed by post-match entertainment by reformed rock legends Beasts of Bourbon. In lieu of the national anthem, Tim Rogers was joined by Kat Spazzy to perform ‘Pub’ by Cosmic Psychos.

Iconic Rockdog veteran Tim Rodgers from You Am I watched from the sidelines this year while Rockdogs coach Paul Kelly lead the way in true fashion. Liam “Banjo” O’Shannessy from The Rockdogs won the Stephen Connelly Award for best-on-ground for the second year running.

All proceeds go to Reklink,  an organisation whose mission is to provide sporting, social and arts activities to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage.
