Round 7 – Haiku Bob: miles apart




Buckley leaves DeGoey

in the goal square





hub life—

Cats and Magpies

miles apart





Zoom meeting—

the Geelong forward line






Brown to Daicos—

I tell my kid

a story or two






a hug

for every goal





taking a breath—

he just hangs on

to a speccy





winning goal—

what is more deadly

alcohol or the virus?
