Advertising All-Stars dominate Seven West Media in the annual SWM AFL 9’s Challenge
The Agency All Stars bagged yet another win on Friday afternoon after conquering Seven West Media for the 4th year in a row at the AFL 9’s Challenge at Leederville Oval.
The undefeated team consisted of players from Matterkind, OMD, Workhouse, Match & Wood, Initiative, Longreach, Carat, and Unify who all worked seamlessly together to win the game 76 to 67.
After a spirited 40-minute game of speccie marks, memorable goals and a few questionable ‘handballs’, the players and spectators alike enjoyed a few beverages and bites in the function room while listening to the highly anticipated awards ceremony.
Congratulations are in order for the award winners, selected with great care by Ben and Ash from Back in Motion:
• Best Banter – Timothy Torres (SWM)
• Best Unawarded Goal – Brent Stewart (SWM)
• Best ACTUAL Goal – Kate Tottman & Adam Prandalos (AA)
• Best Gait Mechanics – Graham Freeman (AA)
And of course, the Back in Motion Best on Ground was awarded to the back-to-back winner, Ben McAuliffe from Initiative.
The guests were treated to a special Q&A with ex-West Coast Eagles and Premiership player, Mark LeCras which was hosted by 7NEWS Sports Presenter, Ryan Daniels.
“It was great to see the agency team secure another win. Brannon Heath clearly led the team to victory with his outstanding ‘kick it to Ben’ focused coaching strategy. It was great to catch up with everyone on the night. The SWM team is hoping for a win in 2024” said Agency Advertising Manager, Jamie Grindley.
