I fear Ash wont win another slam. Seems to throw away chances at big moments.

Matt Temple is another Aussie Olympic swimmer (100m butterfly) who is a Tigers supporter.

-----------------------------------------

Although there are exciting times ahead for Temple, one thing that won’t change is his love for his Richmond Tigers, assuring himself that he will get as many updates as possible when he’s swimming away from home.

“During the champs, it was pretty hard to watch any footy, all I could do was really check the score here and there,” Temple said.

“But I’ll make sure I’ve got a good connection to watch the Tigers from back home whenever I’m away during footy season.”

First female animator worked on Beatles’ Yellow Submarine

ANNE COMRIE JOLLIFFE: 1933 – 2021

Anne Jolliffe, who was the first Australian woman to become a professional animator in the days when the animation industry was male-dominated, died in Leura, NSW, on August 27. She was 87.

Anne was a pioneer in the Australian animation industry, who helped to win an Academy Award for animation.

When Anne was three, during the Great Depression, the family moved to Victoria. They settled in Elwood, where Anne’s parents took on a milk bar in the beach suburb. At the age of nine, her father – who had been the treasurer for the Longford Tigers – took her to her first Aussie Rules game. She was devoted to the Richmond Tigers for ever.
