Well after having the bye first round, and playing a pretty good team in Bayswater last week where our boys looked very rusty.

The boys had to make a stand this week,as we said during the week at training there is no more excuses to be made if we lose. The boys trained really well Thursday and you could sense the boys were going to have a good game Sunday.

Playing at home and against a team we really don’t like that much the boys attitude before the game was great. From the first bounce we were switched on we played some really good footy, we dominated the first quarter having 15 inside 50 to Knox only 4, we didn’t take full advantage of this as we only went into quarter time kicking only 3 goals 2 points but we did keep Knox scoreless.

The rest of the game went pretty much the same way as the first with us dominating the play and the inside 50 count but we didn’t punish Knox on the scoreboard. It was pleasing to see our defence play a lot better this week as we kept Knox to only 1 goal for the game which is a great achievement.

It was also pleasing to see the boys move the ball more quickly and to look to the wider options and just not bomb the ball to a contest.

Lets build on this form now and really work on keeping possession of the ball and converting more from our inside 50 entries.
