Much preferred that second half. Mitch was great, one who wanted it even in the first half. Oscar really got on top of the ruck contest early and dominated. Won the ball out of it a lot. Clugga so classy and Lyons just went big, especially lifted us in the second, because of course he did.
Few things of note:
1. When the whole team was down, it was Robbo and Lyons continually powering the engine room. Once we got our game rolling everything clicked but it was those two that kept us in the game when it was ours to lose.
2. Not downhill skiiers but so many people just turned it on when the game was on the line. Birchall, McCluggage, Big O. All massive in tearing the game open when we went on to kick 11 goals in a row.
3. I enjoy the arsey stuff more than anyone else but please for the love of god, I just wish we could kick straight and absolutely annihilate a team one week. 17.18. Could've posted an insane score today.
4. Really hopeful that the second half spurs us on for this last month of footy and builds faith that our best is good enough. Lions aren't done quite yet.
Well. That second half was much more like that. Play like we did in the first half in the finals and we're getting flogged. Play like we did in the second half and we're not a team you want to be facing. Good character shown is encouraging.
Robbo best for m, based mainly on first half and Linc McCarthy is a bloody good player. Does a lot of hard running when not in possession and has the class to put the icing on the cake when required.
