I think that game was at Footy Park. Might have been the first ever time they'd beaten us, after we won the first 10 head to heads.Tredrea did the "phone call" pose and Chad Cornes bowed when he kicked a goal in the same game one day. Can't quite remember when it was.... I despise the both of them since then!
I was ******* devastated. Such a flat end to a fun, hard fought season. Despite that, this and 07 remain two of my favourite North seasons ever.I'd forgotten that we finished 5th in 05, only to get flogged by Port at Docklands. Rocca misses the birth of his son to arrive just before the first bounce, with Corey as the emergency. Colbert leaves his boots in the centre square at the end of his last ever game.
The context is important with 2007. I mean, it was also our only top 4 finish in the last 20 years so it doesn't really need it.
And yes the Tredrea/Cornes thing was in the prelim that year. They did get suitably humbled the following week if that makes anyone feel better.
