What a bloody finish!!!

This was a gutsy win. Losing Hurley was going to test our stamina. McGrath copped one as well and he was off for awhile.

Walla was fantastic tonight. Genuine match winning star. McKenna too, an absolute bonafide star. Stringer was brilliant. All class.

I thought we were all gone when they hit the front. Ben Brown must have taken a dozen marks inside 50. Unbelievable. Popeye Gleeson was a driving force in that last quarter and gave everything he had.

Top notch win!

Interesting stat for everyone, according to form ladder since Round 11 we are on top of that ladder with 5 out of 6 wins.

In my book John Worsfold is safe. We are playing an irresistible brand of footy.

Get over the Crows and I think we all should be believers.

Worsfold’s on a pretty good wicket right now,but must have them push on to qualify for Finals.

Anything else right now,post Home and Away Fixtures should be put aside.

Concentrate on the job at hand,which has been very good of late.

We’ll leave the fun to Lloydy and Karl Langdon to slug it out on the airwaves,as seen on The Sunday Footy Show today. :lol:

How many cheap shots did we cop yesterday? I hate that pissant club. There would have been lucky to be 2000 of them there,

How good was McGrath in the final 2 minutes. He was outstanding.

Can we fix Laverde’s goal kicking. If we can get that right he will be a serious player.

The two Clarke’s were magnificent. Zac just payed a great ruckmans game and Dylan was brilliant.

What a great win. Injuries are starting to mount up though. Huge game next week.

He was huge. In fact, his form over several weeks has been excellent. Going to be a fabulous player for many years. Gun.

When that last centre clearance had to be won, McGrath made sure of it.

Yes, and he did it from the wing and not starting in the centre.

Particularly, when Tippa was copping a belting from at least three Kangaroo players all day. Our players on the improvement march, must stand up for their team mates. I not suggesting they go the bash but they must show a bit of mongrel and let the opposition we won't cop that rubbish.

Has to be a contender for goal of the year. Great game. We really ground that win out and its pleasing to watch us being able to do that. Two weeks in a row now was similar against Sydney. Good preparation for the Adelaide game which I think we can win.

Gav Wanganeen MK11...

Just the 'smooth' way he moves. Could win a brownlow in 2-3 years. :) vingertje
