Do they have any pre-game superstitions? Arrive late to the game & get the coach angry
Reason for nomination this round: Xavier had a best on ground performance against Shellharbour in Round 14 after a month off footy doing what university students do has earnt X Factor this nomination.

A great new addition to the Dogs in 2019!
