Uni Blues made the trip to Sportscover Arena and welcomed Old Melburnians back to William Buck Premier and were two kicks away from being on the receiving end of a Round One upset.

OMs led by two points at the half time break but OMs were unable to curb the influence of former Swan Districts forward, Tim “Swooper” Geappen, as he booted three goals to help the Blues over the line. Former Melbourne Grammar boys, Will Cuningham and Hugh Vickers-Willis, led from the front in the Blues’ second half comeback, while Tom Quinn and Jamie Mugavin kicked two each.
