It is certainly strange that it only takes a couple of minutes of outstanding play that will undoubtedly change the game and deflate the opposition. The end of the first quarter was that point for me. In 2017 it was Towner burying Crouch that did for the CrowsI watched bits again over the last week and I have come to the conclusion that there are two 10 minute patches that I will watch over and over again.
The last 3-4 minutes of the first and the first 10 minutes of the 2nd quarter when in hindsight it become blindingly obvious that the Giants couldn't go with us. Suddenly in a blink of an eye we were 26 points up.
The other patch is the first 10 minutes of the 3rd when we went from 35 points up to 60, which could have been more if we kicked straight. It was gorgeous football. Pressure, power, skill all rolled into one short period. We could have kicked 7 goals in that period such was the dominance. I recall at the time going from thinking that it wasn't quite over to knowing we were premiers and the rest of the game being a relaxed celebration.
