    Inaugural Monash Gryphons Legends Game – Triple Header!

    Gryphnation and the Monash Gryphons AFC committee are proud to announce that the inaugural Monash Gryphons Legends Game will be held at East Caulfield Reserve on the 18th of April 2015.

    We’ll be firing up the BBQ at half time of the seniors for a pre-game feed and final team selection while we watch the last half of the seniors before kick-off at around 5:15pm. The game will likely be 4 x 12 minute quarters with beers and pizza and a few yarns afterwards in the hall. Any sons of guns are also welcome to join their dads on the field, numbers permitting.

    This is going to be a great event. Players, supporters and partners all welcome!
