    The day has finally come to announce the winners of the second ever Club Roar Awards.

    We’re celebrating the highlights and the lowlights of local sport in its purest form.

    For this round of judging we enlisted the help of Olympic gold medallist Steven Bradbury.

    We’ve watched thousands of your videos and narrowed it down to the best of the best and the best of the worst.

    The most coveted Club Roar prize is our Most Popular Video award, and the winner has netted $2000.

    This goalkeeper and defender combined but couldn’t stop the Eastern Lions scoring a goal and we couldn’t stop watching these two fly through the air in perfect synchronicity.

    Congratulations Ian Dunn on capturing this great footage.

    The Beastmode category celebrates an unstoppable performance from a player that looks like they have come from a different league. For this round no-one could stop Kyle Van Lantern’s footage of Callum MacDonald from Iona College.

    Epic Lowlights are a pleasure to judge and we’re sure Tom will be feeling a lot better about Archie driving a ball into his head during filming now that he knows he’s earned the Horsham Saints Cricket Club $1000.

    Our Tomorrow’s Stars category is for the best performances by players under 18. Alessandro Patrielli has got himself $1000 of lunch money after submitting this video of Joseph Kandalaft from St Joseph’s College.

    The Pure Skill award is for no fluke, this is for the best of the best. This round Ross Palframan submitted this length of the field effort by the Associates rugby union Club.

    The Dream Team award celebrates the perfect plays when the whole team is in perfect harmony, singing from the same song sheet. This round we couldn’t beat this effort from St George Under 15s. Adam Adams will get the $1000 prize.

    The Jaw-dropper needs to be seen to be believed. This take from a Dandenong bowler against the Geelong Cricket Club has earned Heath Farnsworth $1000.

    While women are obviously eligible for all categories there’s the Women in Sports award that is only for the girls. This performance by Oneata Schwalger secured her $1000.

    It’s a case of deja vu in more ways than one with the winner of the Funniest Video Award. Our most popular video was also voted the funniest which means Ian Dunn has really earned his keep for filming the synchronised dive.

    Last but not least it’s the International Award. While we love Australian sports performers at The Roar it’s always good to check out the competition from overseas. There’ll be plenty of Australian rugby players glad this OBU winger is playing her club rugby in New Zealand not here.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

      Love seeing these videos of up and coming players. Wonder how many of them will be professionals in 5 or 10 years?

      I’m voting for the kid who gets hit in the head. Poor fella. At least winning some money might make him feel better. Good on whoever sent that video, making a laugh of it
