For three quarters this match was close and in the balance. However with a string of key injuries, we simply ran out of players and fell away dramatically in the last quarter.
Veteran decoy forward Jeff Scotland was dominating the front half while resident super star and Gun Power Forward Daniel Buckley controlled the tempo with his gut busting leads and crunching pack marks.
Jeremy Plazzer and Neil Todd played spirited games and caused plenty of angst for the opposition
Key playmaker Hayden Rattray left a big hole in the side when he went off with an injury. Lightweight boxing champion Matt Wallis made his long awaited return putting in a solid performance
