This bs falling in the back rule needs to go. There's nothing in it. Push in the back was introduced to protect the marking player. Why is dropping over someone's back an infringement it's just illogical
It should be judged the same way as the high tackle. If you draw the high tackle by ducking or lifting your shoulder it is play on and if you are tackled and dive forward you’ve created the in the back and it should be play on.

To be honest I think the worm had turned a bit before Fyfes shoulder went. Obviously didn't help them though
There were definitely signs that Sydney's intensity had lifted yet Fyfe is so strong and important to Freo's structure in the middle that he invariably draws two opposition mids in and still gets the handball out to a team mate. Creates overlap play but that dried up completely when he went off injured.

Bit worried about the clearance game in the last, feels a return to the first. Likely not matter but if Freo can get another two goals quickly....
