In a tough, scrappy match against Bridgewater last Saturday, we showcased our ability to win the ball at stoppages, and transition the ball well from half bank. The end result was a 60 point victory for us, with Ryan Salvador kicking four of our 10 goals. Carlos Ly also provided plenty of clearances and superb ball use, while Matt Farrell played like a bull through the middle. Taynan Richardson found great position regularly, finding himself without an opponent on several occasions and setting up plenty of scoring opportunities. Whilst our accuracy in front of goal needs improvement, our ball movement and brand of footy is looking strong as we move into the second half of the season.
