The Super 3's sauntered over to West London last Saturday in a do or die clash with the Wildcats. Facing the foe who beat us in double overtime in last year's grand final, the stage was set for an epic duel. Running with only 4 men on the bench, we were quickly undermanned after injuries to Maka and Morgs early on in the first quarter. But that did not stop our endeavour as we pushed on, under the pump, to book ourselves a spot in the grand final.
What transpired was the best all round performance of the year for the Super 3's. Right out of the gate we took the game on and put the pressure on early, opening a two goal lead at quarter time courtesy of our new best friend, the stand rule. We set a task for ourselves, 2 goals a quarter minimum, and that's what we delivered for the game.
Harry Luff was dominant. Lachy Robinson couldn't be stopped in the ruck, and Tom Platts chose to row in a regatta.
Toby Graham kicked a sizzling goal off the deck. Tony White's groin stayed together. Cmac kicked a 100m goal and Cam Watts almost took his opponents head off. Best on ground was Luke Deards.
All in all, a phenomenal effort and a result that we earned the hard way. The perfect prep to take on the Swans tomorrow. We are yet to beat them in the 2 seasons they've been in the comp, but in the words of the greatest band ever, Taxiride:
It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime .What better place than here, what better time than now?
