Round 6 saw us back at home with a huge challenge in front of us with Parkdale coming off a 160-point win the previous week.  We knew they would come out hard and try to throw us off our game. With this in mind we wanted to make the match a real arm wrestle. 

For the first half of the game we were able to do this by keeping them to five goals for an entire half. Even though we only kicked one goal ourselves it could have easily been three or four, but wayward kicking let us down. Our tackle pressure was great in the first half, although this took a toll on us as we started to tire in the third quarter. 

At three-quarter time I asked that we don't roll over like last week and continue to fight out the game till the end, and to the boys credit they tried hard till the final siren.  Although the scoreboard didn't reflect it, the game was tight all the way to the end. Parkdale were able to get a few quick goals late and our last kick inside 50 was still a bit of an issue, but to the boys credit they continue to train hard and improve on these areas in the hope to get another win very soon.
