It was a game of 2 halves in the Premiers. In the first half, our boys followed the script perfectly, killing the game off in emphatic fashion, the scoreboard reading 82-1 at the main break. This was done despite 13 changes so it was fantastic to see the boys gel well when called upon.
The tone was set by the midfield, Disco was everywhere and the leadership and direction from Ash in his first game back from injury was pivotal. As a collective group we were first to the ball and applied enormous pressure on the opposition who simply couldn't match it. Delivery into the forward 50 was crisp and the chances were taken, lead by Rouse who had 9 first half majors. Gareth was excellent in the ruck in the first term in just his second game of Aussie Rules and he along with DJ and Bubbles (who also featured in his first Prem Game), brought a tackling game that caused forced errors on the opposition to allow us to control the momentum for nearly the entirity of the half.
After the main break the Swans fought hard and did outscore us. With the game already over and a huge match next week, the foot could be taken off the pedal for the last time this season.
