Saad and is a ripper. Redman is a beauty. Loving their work.

Smack has a great pair of hands!

Just got to keep up with the intensity and pressure the entire game.

Hooker - not so much

Clarke doing a great job on Kelly. Just need whoever is on Congilio to play closer.

TBell needs to do more with the ruck given his dominance over Mummy

So far, a really strange mixture of brilliance and stupidity. One minute we look like killers and then next minute we make some basic mistake that even ten year olds should not make. Hard to say which way it will go in the second half.

Langford on Fire.... :evil:


As usual too many passengers. Walla, Fantasia....these two need to lift. Need more from Shiel. Begley unsighted. Parish asleep at the wheel. Is Brown out there?

Can’t see us winning. Holding on only at the moment.

Can Gleeson stop kicking higher than long directly to an opponent?

Playing like 10 year olds who suddenly realise they've got a chance of winning and panic. Walla looks like he's playing on a Wilson's castle ](*,)

How the hell was that a free against McKernan? The ump's shit bouncing caused that

Well f*** me dead.

I will eat my words and attitude for the week.

The winning move was forced by TBell being off. We looked so much better with McKernan and Hooker in the Ruck/Forwardline.

Hooker had 3 shit quarters and one match winning one. Ditto Tippa.

Shiel and Redman great. Saad wonderful. McKernan BOG.

Hooker sensational in that last quarter. We stole it from them as they missed lots of easy shots.

And for Benny we only had 50 clangers to their 69. There might be something in this stat.

sometimes hunger can make up for poor skills....this is how hungry you have to be to win.

I want to say well coached but in all honesty, had Bellchambers not got injured we would have lost by 5 goals.

Interesting. I wouldn't have realised that... how did we go for clangers in Q4 compared with other quarters? It looked like suddenly we grew a brain, although the pace and intensity picked up so much, it was hard to see what was happening sometimes.
The worst clanger to my mind was at end of Q1 I think, when I'd just tuned in. Someone took a mark in front, about 30 metres out with almost no defenders around, then fired a lazy hand ball to someone with a defender on his tail in the goal square and it was bundled away for no score. When I saw that, I almost switched it off again. Can't remember who it was...
Anyway, well done boys: kept me biting my nails till the end!
Observation: Congrats on your 200th Zacha, Now you'll be able to hang up your boots at last =D> .

Even though the crowd numbers were not overly big, i am pretty confident we helped get them over the line in the end...ooh...and maybe Hookers mark/goal. We got some frees back from the Bald Git late in the last...and the crowd ensured them.
The crowd after the game and heading out of the station was reminiscent of a finals win....great atmosphere there tonight.
Well done Saad, he was in everything tonight...and Hooker...well he deserves his hot chocolate and cuddles after the game tonight... vingertje
