It only took one round of the Independent Football 2016 season to confirm that the Browns Well Bombers are going to be extremely hard to beat for the flag and, going on their Anzac Day outing, the 2015 premiers, the Lyrup Lions, despite a vastly changed line up will be competetive when they settle things down.

In the rematch of the 2016 Grand Finalists on Anzac Day—

Browns Well 4.2 9.5 13.7 19.8 (122) defeated

Lyrup 3.3 4.3 9.6 12.8 (80).

Jesse Smith had his kicking boots on right from the start for the Bombers with 10 goals, Brok Schubert kicked 5 and best players in an even lot were Smith, B Schubert, Brian Hampel, Angus Size, Craig Hyde and Shane Schubert.
For Lyrup William Carr, Aaron Mills, Lee Verrall, Marcus Owen, Bradley Reid and Kobi Lloyd were in good early form.
