Dois and Darce
Dois and Josh check out the turf before the game.
Dois leads the team up the race
Dois gets into the back of Rory
Can’t hold onto the mark after a big spoil “to the head” from Ottens
Tackles a roaring Rory
Gets a toe to the ball before the big Sauce smoothers it
JoeDan competes for the ball at ground level.
Gets the jump on his opponent at the contest
Not happy in letting that mark go through to Hartigan
One day he will decide to contest these with his hands out in front above his head, then he will be taking at the highest point.
Blind handball to a passing Bomber (hopefully) over the top of Crouch
Walla continues to improve and amaze.
Good contested mark in front
Such a nice kick around the ground
Taps to himself, gathers and he is off.
Jobe spoils the mark
And again against the bigger Sauce
Loony competed, but big Sauce man handled him around the contest. You can see Darce reading the palm down from Sauce at this contest.
Conor over the back with the fisted spoil
With an untidy bump that saw him reported
Zaka had a better return this week, but Rory is playing out of his skin at the moment, coming in with little pre-season but tearing it up on the field.
BJ shows the old legs still have some spring in them.
BJ with the clean take away from the centre bounce
Another clearance from the centre
BJ and Darce apply the Malachi Crunch to Crouch
Hangs on in the tackle to stop another goal from Eddilaide
BJ and Bags spoil the marking contest
Kicks around the body
Darce almost lets the mark slip.
Gets away the hurried kick
Raz shows great balance as he prepares to hoof it long.
Baggers fires off a handpass to clear the ball from defence
Spoils the mark
Mitch not happy with the defensive efforts
Hurls gets the spoil
And gets spoiled
Zerrett sees the ball and goes to get the ball
Fires out the handpass
Hooksy not happy when the siren goes.
Pidge applies a strong tackle to the roaring Rory. Great game from the young fella. I hope he doesn’t get the RS nom this week for a losing team, but he certainly played good enough for one.
Curtly takes off after the loose ball, but looks up at the last moment to see…
Ambrose collect the ball and goes BOOM!
Running out through the banner
Woosha pre game address
Bangs out a quick karaoke version of Sweet Caroline in honour of SWMNBM
Stick to the game plan and for goodness sake lay some tackles!
…Bionic Man theme music plays….
You just knew when this big spud snapped the opening goal that is was going to be one of those nights.
Our plan is simple:
1. Kick it to Tex
2. Kick it somewhere near Eddie
The boys aren’t happy as they leave the ground. Poor opening half pressure and then inaccurate kicking in the 3rd saw the Crows comfortably beat the Bombers.
