Round 11 saw us play Whitefriars for the second time this year and after they gave us a hiding the first time around the players were keen to return serve on our home deck. 

The first quarter was fantastic as our run with the ball and decision making was the best it's been all year. Bolstered by four schoolboys again they were leading the way with their attack and courageous efforts to go after the ball. A six goal to two quarter held us in good stead, but there was a long way to go. 

The second quarter saw Whitefriars get on top for a period in the middle of the term, kicking three quick goals, but we responded well with another six of our own. Leading by seven goals at half-time our accuracy was the most impressive aspect, sitting on 12.3. 

The third quarter was an arm wrestle as both teams jostled for control, with us kicking one early goal and Whitefriars responding with two of their own. We then kicked a series of behinds and looked like we may let them back into the game, although it wasn't to be as we slotted another two goals and led at three quarter-time 15.6 to 7.9. 

The last quarter saw us with no rotations left with injuries and one player having to leave for holidays, despite dominating the first half. The players all battled very hard and showed what a good pre-season can do for fitness as we put on another three goals to one to run out 54-point winners.
