The problem with freebies/cheapies is that with the extreme heat, it's an easy decision to just not go. I just feel the last few years of COVID, smoke, floods, extreme wet, now high heat it's been really hard trying to attract supporters to the game.
Well, what a gutsy round 1 win that was in the heat, with multiple injuries, and coming from 28 points down. Unfortunately, we may pay for it next week in hampering what is a winnable game against the Eagles. The west has never been a happy hunting ground for us, and we'll be three major injured...
5 - Steve Coniglio: 810m gained, 32d, 14 score involvements, bursting out of the pack for 8 clearances, what a magnificent game!
4 - Tom Green: 37d, 8 clearances, 12 score involvements: a very mature performance
3 - Toby Greene: led from the front, 4 goals, 10 score involvements
2 - Cal Ward...
