What a gritty, gutsy win. I thought we were down and out when they kicked the first three goals of the 4th. I groaned and thought "Here we go again, we've run out of gas and theyre going to run over us".
Nope. We cracked in.
The veterans stepped up, so did the kids. What a satisfying win. What a moment. With so many injuries, this could be a turning point.
Im pretty sure I had people wondering what the hell I was watching on my phone.
Duck me I love being an Eagles supporter! So many awesome moments in among the club folding rage.
+TK Was glorious
+NN covered for the absence of 5 premiership midfielders with his clearance work
+JD had some match winning moments.
+Ryan in the form of his career. So glad he's playing for us.
+Barrass stood up when the saints tried to lift.
+Gaff was involved in just about everything tonight.
+Ainsworth is growing on me. Even his disposal looked better.
+Honeybadger telling Miguel many times to "shut up"
-Gov injury. Survives concussion test probably because the blockhead has such a low benchmark to beat. Does his hammy instead
Leaders showed their character and our culture.
Guts and body on the line.
Stuck to our plan.
Nic lifts like no other.
I declare the Kelly trade a magnificent success.
Kids kept at it - tough to come in like this without a game or real training.
Commamtary -its a pathetic package. - Can not even get names right.
A lot been said about Naitanui's 4 quarter game.
Stood up in the last quarter with 5 clearances, 4 i50s and a number of hit-outs to advantage.
Basically willed us over the line. Reminded me in part of Judd's game against Sydney those many years ago.
