*Clarko got the club mentally ready for the game which was a big factor in the win (footy is mostly a mental game)
*Worpel and Wingard looking good in the mid
*slippery conditions helped Breust slip past some tackles for a couple of goals
*Henderson is class, now that he has fixed the fitness issue he had when he first got here, he is playing the best footy of his career
*Sicily 33 poss from hbf, he was hard to get past all night
*TOB and Lewis providing targets at different stages
*Hardwick had good influence but not the big numbers
*Nash was good, not just marking but sharing the ball around i50
*CJ had a comfortable debut, did some nice things, had a couple of hiccups but nothing to worry about

I must say how delighted I was with Smith's game. I've been a huge fan of Smith through the journey and was beginning to think his best was behind him, but he was high in our best players last night and showed he still has plenty to offer. Wingard was very good as well, which will upset my Port friends who told me we were buying a lemon. I get that a lot from opposition supporters, apparently we never seem to pick up anyone from another club who is much good. :)

Gotta love Clarko’s approach to this game. Gotta love TOB playing like he belongs. Gotta love Chad taking the game on all night. Gotta love Sicily being a rock and outplaying the fu** out of Toby Greene. Gotta love Poppy turning back the clock. Gotta love Scully playing his best game for the year. Gotta love Worpel playing like a beast and making a late run for B&F. Gotta love CJ’s run and endeavour on debut.

Gotta love this ******* club!

(Also gotta love that thread title).
Gotta love your post Ned!

So thankful they didn’t kick too many goals. How bloody annoying is that damn music after they goal! I think I would’ve ended up muting the tv or try to find radio coverage.
Giants players clearly not fans of hearing music post goal.

Browne encapsulates all that's wrong with footy media. Absolutey embarrassing. If his IQ were any lower he'd have to be watered daily.

He might do but he's just doing what he has been asked, to make some $$$ best he can while he can in a game he loves. Can't knock a bloke for that and seems like a loyal, honest fella. I have more time for him than a D.King or D.Barrett, regardless of IQ.

I don't think any sniffle-inducing bacteria could survive mid-winter Canberra. They like the warmth too much.

Like going to Antarctica, I reckon the people are reasonably safe
Being on a yacht or boat out at sea, same thing no colds or flu, except for the P&O or cruise ships cesspool of contagion. 😷🤧

What a f*n win. We may come to find in 10 years time that this game is still in GWS history books.

off the top of the head

Great - Cegs Worps TOB Sicily Smith Shiels Chad Ricky Breust Poppy

Good - Scully Howe Frawley Hardwick Stratts Lewis Nash JOM

Quiet- Burgoyne Cousins Jiath Hanrahan

Wouldn't live anywhere else

For all I’ve said here, if we played in Canberra again, I’ll be there.
Watching the team play live is so much fun.

We actually found a couple of great bars and a very good restaurant and would be happy to go there again.

No need to make personal comments about her - we should be better than that. She is though a very very vanilla football commentator. I turn the station when she comes on - her monotone voice nearly puts me to sleep
kelli underwood must put u 6 feet under then! shocking monotone

CJ is an interesting prospect. Quick and enthusiastic, which is great. Has to work on his game sense as he was often near the play due to his athleticism but not in the play. A bit more seasoning and experience and he'll have a shot at being very disruptive. Also needs more meat on his bones to take the wear and tear of a full season. But one more good candidate debuting for the Hawks.

I also thought Nash played quite well for 20 minutes notice. I really liked his wrestling win for that goal square mark. I reckon he'll be really damaging next year.
