International Rules 2017 Series


#41

Zach Merrett just racks it up and hits targets.


#42

I enjoyed it.

Thought Zerrett was best and Zorko not far behind. Simpson still missing targets.


#43

We’ve had years of playing this “International Rules” game under the handicap of using the Irish ball. When are we going to call a halt to it finally — and make them play with OUR ball ?


#44

We’d murrder them, they would not cope. At least this way it’s competitive.


#45

Anyone else think Merrett looks like he’s bulked up a fair bit? Possibly for more inside midfield work next season


#46

A lot of players look bulked at this time of year before the running picks back up.


#47

Guys, I’m reading this thread just before getting the plane back from Sydney on Sunday night. Don’t make me look at the AwFuL site for a score.

(Clearly none of ours got injured, I’d enjoy it for the giggles but otherwise really don’t care.)


#48

I didn’t watch as promised. Was it good? Was Zerrett actually best or is that just red and black glasses talking? Crowd?


#49

They got 25000 to turn up o n a stinking hot day.

Merrett was awesome…so composed with the round ball with every possession and had plenty of it.

Fyfe is a dead set natural - can we please chase his signature because playing for Freo will ultimately deny him success.

Didn’t mind Goddard in goal…reads the play beautifully well.


#50

Well no thanks…

We won 2.13.12 (63) to 1.13.8 (53)

The old Connor we don’t want kicked 7 of their 13 overs; Pendlebury busted a finger.


#51

Anyone have a link of a replay?


#52

#53

Did Dessy Dolan, play?


#54

I’ve mentioned a few times now.

AFL media are celebrating that Australia ‘won’ the first match.
No. They are leading halfway through the series. It’s not a best of 3 series. It’s not a best of 2 series. It’s an aggregate score over 2 matches that decides the winner.


#55

None of which changes the fact that they still won the first match


#56

Nope. They are winning at half time in the series.

What do they get for having ‘won’ the first match? A trophy?
If Ireland come out and bury them in the second match, having ‘won’ the first match is literally useless.


#57

Whens the next one?


#58

Sat night. In Perth.


#59

#60

How awesome is BJ?
Love him to bits!
