MARSH COMMUNITY SERIES | West Coast v Fremantle
Once is fun, but twice is extra nice. Yes, I’m back again with another game review today, but don’t worry, we won’t make this a third time for this evening, I swear. It’s the WA Derby for this pre-season game, which as you may have guessed means West Coast is playing Fremantle.
It was a low scoring first half with just 6 goals scored and the Eagles taking a 25-22 lead at half time. For the most part it was like watching a boring game of marks up since the ball just went bouncing from end to end without a lot of scoring. The Eagles got out to a 24 point lead in the 4th, but then 4 goals in 5 minutes from the Dockers brought it level at 48 apiece and ended up pulling off a great 55-54 win over the Eagles
Liam Duggan – Busy, busy, busy in the first half with 22 disposals. Finished with 32 for the game with 27 uncontested and 12 marks.
Elliot Yeo – Almost as busy as Duggan with 18 disposals and 5 tackled at half time with a massive 522 metres gained (the next best on ground was Fyfe with 333). Finished with a game high 33 disposals, with 7 tackles, 8 clearances and 689 metres gained. 128 SCPoints is a big tick.
Shannon Hurn – 15 touches and 7 marks to halftime, ended with 22 and 10. Reliable performer. 92 SCPoints is solid.
Jack Redden – A bit of a forgotten man with the recruitment of Tim Kelly, but he was plenty busy here with 31 disposals and 7 marks, but just 95 SCPoints.
Tim Kelly – 11 disposals at the half, added another 10 in the 3rd quarter and finished with 29. Only 9 contested possessions and 1 clearance in there, but had 107 SCPoints.
Andrew Gaff – Had 32 disposals, 7 marks, 5 tackles and 4 clearances and a game high 133 SCPoints.
Jarrod Brander – 8 touches at the half, finished with 17 with 5 marks and 75 SCPoints. We’ll take that at his price every day of the week.
Andrew Brayshaw – Had a team high 25 disposals, with 7 marks, 8 tackles and 5 clearance and 102 SCPoints. Looks the goods.
Nat Fyfe – Or Nat Dude as autocorrect tried to chance his name to. Spent some time at half-forward and had 23 disposals, 7 marks and 4 clearances. Still got a team high 114 SCPoints.
Cam McCarthy – On the wing which is an intriguing Supercoach move. 11 disposals and 4 marks at halftime and 17 for the game for 69 SCPoints.
Sean Darcy – Taken over as the ruck for the Dockers, had 14 disposals and 23 hitouts, but just 67 SCPoints.
Caleb Serong – Came on in the 4tb quarter and had 3 disposals.
And that will definitely be it for me tonight, but I wanna hear what you all thought of the Eagles and the Dockers. Anyone catch your eye? Or anyone crossed off your list?
