One of the challenges I felt we faced coming into this game was with 5 good wins from 5 games when we found ourselves behind in a game we would struggle to motivate ourselves to do what was needed to win a game of footy. Today we played a better skilled team all over the ground and at half time we found ourselves behind 2.3.15 to 3.4.22 and kicking against a slight breeze in the 3rd quarter. Our first half we had every player giving 100% but with little passion and excitement about the game and each other. At half I said I didn't care if we won lost or drew, all I wanted was a team of players who played and did everything they could for a team mate. Well our 3rd quarter was all about team spirit kicking 3.2 to 1.2 against they breeze. At 3rd time we found ourselves up by 5 points and full of excitement and passion for each other. Our last quarter was a hard battle with only 1 goal in the last quarter by us.Today was a win is best quoted as a win by a "champion team" against a team of champions. Very prod of every player today, particularly some of our developing less experienced players.
