Apart from luck, the other themes when we have a game like the weekend are quite distinct differences in rule interpretations applied only to us. I'm not only referring to this but to the Duursma high tackle earlier in this thread. As someone also mentioned in the gameday thread, WCE players were allowed to tackle Port players even if they looked like going for the ball. Again, a theme in performances like Saturday's.
Is that right. Well that was a stupid decision.Dunno if this was said before.
But just realised we flew up and played the same day.
Probably not the best idea. No wonder some of the players looked ridiculously slow. Makes sense to fly over and play the same day in the eastern states. But Perth would be too long of a trip

Schoey?The WC set plays in the centre bounces hurt us. Natanui would tap the ball into open space with a WC midfielder picking the ball up and sprinting towards the forward line under little or no pressure. He wouldn't tap the ball in the same spot. He would mix things up but the designated mid knew exactly where the tap would go, and the other mids would stay clear of the designated space. I would have been impressed if I was a neutral watching the game. But as a Port supporter it was fustrating as hell to watch. We were outcoached on that part of the game. We seemed powerless to stop it.
Wallace was a superb matchday coach and tactician who put a heavy emphasis on technique and skills training.I challenge you to find any supporter who believes Terry Wallace was a good coach.
