Disappointment for GWS
His first game in charge, Scully wag was quietly confident of a win against Brisbane. He shouldn't have been as all of Brisbanes stars were firing with their midfielders dominating around the ground the entire match. It was all overe by the first quarter as they were leading by 30. The 64 point loss means GWS bow out of the competition
