The weather turned it on for us, we were soaked by an absolute rain deluge prior to the game during our warm up followed by sunshine in the game and a stiff breeze that sprung up in the second half.
The ultimate definition of a tough day at the office for our Panther Women!
Old Scotch were impressive, we can learn a lot from the way they played in particular their stoppage setups and positioning and their ability to spread and run and carry.
Despite the score line we matched them for periods of the match, again failing to capitalise on our work when we had the ball up forward usually because we were too crowded
To our credit we kept our heads up to the final siren and there were many notable efforts. Here are just a few
A relentless work rate from our defenders
Caitlin continues to dominate the ruck
Great work by Yvonne down back in her first game
Vic in her first game was working hard in the midfield
Great clearances off the backline from Bonnie, Morgy, Sophie and Emma
Big hangers from Little
Mia’s first game was awesome, solid tackling and drive
Nicky first game back after 12 months, she got right in there
We have plenty to work on; keeping the talk up and hanging onto the ball but there is no doubt the team is bonding together and we will improve each week.
Thanks to our trainer Amity and volunteers Angus, Pete, Clare, Lucy and Henry our super speedy water carrier.
