St Bernards came to our home ground pretty fired up and ready for a physical encounter. They started very well, booting 3.6 in the first quarter to our 0.1 and it could have easily been a larger difference is it wasn’t for the strong and resilient work by our back men – in particular Cam Friend & Rhett Mitchelhill

We reviewed our start and the deficiencies we were showing at quarter time and the response from our group was fantastic, we won the second quarter 4.3 to their 3 straight. There was a very unfortunate incident in this quarter and we were very proud of the response shown by our team.

Sadly, in the second half we missed a lot of opportunities and with an ever-growing injury list on the bench, we simply ran out of legs and St Bernards ground out a win by 29 points.

The major positive we saw was that after the 1st quarter where we were down by 23 points, we managed to have very even final 3 quarters but as we know, footy is played over 4 quarters and that was the major difference from our effort in the previous round!

Our group now looks towards our trip to PEGS next week having learned a lot
