It was such a bizarre one in the context of the previous weeks’ annihilation (fresh off 138/165 in the preceding fortnight), wasn’t it.Still remember the players getting applauded off after that game, not 1 person hurled abuse.
From looking like another record defeat at quarter time (1 goal to 10), to actually winning the second half (11.6 to 9.4) on top of Butcher’s performance.
Finally some resolve and hope, a genuine flicker, for what was rapidly feeling like a division-two outfit.
Should’ve won the following week as $12 underdogs too, before copping the robbery of robberies.
