Walks softly carries a big stick.

Pies game unfortunately was simply the bad hair day we had to have that year. Reckon our form was patchy from about a month before finals, we were somehow just getting by n doing enough to win without playing well. Then Dusty on one leg, Assa crook with gippy guts n Colonwood on the charge n *smile* happened big time.If you want to beat us you have to sustain it for four quarters.
Pies game & the
Lions game this finals series the outlier.
Phenomenal finals record since 17.
Lions game was actually the game that set up our flag run this year. Poor buggers played their Granny to beat us in that first final, copped the double week off n there was nothing left in their head space when they got to play the Prelim.
Meanwhile back in the Hub. We managed to get the extra necessary hard game time into Bash, Nank, Assa, Shedda, Presty who'd all missed large portions of the season n we didn't to have the double break for the pre finals bye and then waiting for the prelim to roll around.
Boys were match hardened n cherry ripe to play a big hard Grand Final game of footy.
