From the previous week win against LauderdaleWas weird the game had to be played on the weekend with so much school footy being played mid week. It may have impacted on some results but I think this is a long bow to say the absence of some young players was the difference between Clarence beating NL on the weekend.
Darcy Gardner, Oliver Davis and Sam banks were named in the best 6 plays for Clarence.
So they lost 3 of their best players from the week before.
Add to that Noah Holmes being their key forward and Baker Smith a key back.
Its not a longbow but a very short bow to suggest it did not make a difference.
