MacMillan ,Pittard, Atley and McDonald were awesome.

Not to mention Tarrant working overtime in the air.

Membrey Ryder and King (2 charity goals) were soundly beaten.

Our defence functioned brilliantly given the circumstances. Just like they did for the 2nd half of last season. What a pickup Pittard has been

The pre-match consensus that we would benefit from any rainfall proved to be way off the mark, in my opinion. We were a woeful with the slippery ball. The Saints seemed to handle it much better than us. Our comeback seemed to coincide with the arrival of the sun.

Loved listening to salty Kane doing the final wrap up on SEN. Still going to be a tough year for North and St Kildas list vastly superior with lots more talent. Face it Kane, Polec and Pittard is shaping up as a cracking deal for us. Port have had their pants pulled down.
Mate (Kane) st kilda were turgid, even when they were winning.

I know his role is to be the contrarian but seriously pants on head comments aren’t controversial it’s just rubbish.

Stealing a living. Makes Skip Bayless look like Howard Cossell

Just watching a replay. Rhyce really involved advising Jed on the bench at three quarter time. Jeez, we look like we’ve picked a good one in Scamper. He’s so involved.

While Rattan looked forlorn in the coaches box like our previous coach.

Must be a slow news day at the Hun for them to be running a story about two North players at the centre of a noise complaint last night.

You wouldn't think there was much going on in the world if this stuff makes the news.

Self isolate and be quiet...
I always knew saints fans were snitches.

And that's why Lmac and Jmac get selected every week.

but we still have posters coming out with the pitch forks every time they're selected.

There can be only one...
That's fine but the game is only halfway over and posters were making some ridiculous and stupid statements. It was the first half of the opening game of the year and posters went to water except Snake who correctly identified the issues to address instead of carrying on like a pork chop like most did. Now if they weren't addressed and we produced a second half similar to the first then I would get the angst to a point.

This sticking the boots in at every opportunity at players and club on this board is reaching shithouse levels.

Have some faith in the new regime from the start at least ffs.
I am glad I didn't post anything, but there wasn't much positive going through my mind after the first half. I have a very big concern about how we prepare for a new season, how we just give guys who are zero chance of playing game time in what is a few games we have to get ready, how we don't play the brand of football that is our successful brand of football, we kind of went through the motions during the pre-season and we started like that as well.

It is great we were able to turn things around after half time, however, it is a real concern about the large variance between our on and off footy, there is anything up to a 100 point difference between our good and bad footy and that is way too large a variance for a side that intends on contending.

Yep but reprogramming players into a new game plan can take a year to do. Winning a game like that under those circumstances considering our recent record of coming from behind during a game and round 1's with one rotation is special. Regardless of opposition.

Overall, this victory should be chalked down to Rhyce. It’s only fair. If we had been well beaten, he would have been pilloried for his lack of a plan B. The way he took control of proceedings after halftime really deserves plaudits. It would appear we got that decision correct.

I just put the first half down to having too many underdone players. We just need some continuity and we should be ok, if this season ever restarts
