Good game to watch and an important win obviously. South's forward line finally looked potent, with Eddy booting 5 and Overall and Haren playing support roles with 2 each. Gulden (all class), Gotch and Cross busy in the middle, while consistent duo Crabby and Rose were once again very good. Schwarz played his best game for the year, kicking a couple of great goals in the 3rd, while I like the way McMahon attacks the footy.

Injuries to Veide (ankle), Haines (collarbone? shoulder?) on-top of Redigolo during the week (fell over in shower apparently) sees the casualty ward growing busier at the wrong end of the season. The ressies had to blood a number of u18s apparently.

Westies never really looked like winning and were flat for most of the day. Fielke very good with 5 goals.

Crowd was again poor. 1200-1300 maybe.

Saying Westies were pretty flat, I think is a bit unfair to our side today. WE harassed, tackled, punched and marked the footy pretty well today and I would think our possession rate was lot better than theirs.

The young blokes who have come into the side to cover the injuries that are happening at this end of the season have and are starting to put their names forward for next year and beyond

Eddy was good up forward, Seccull found plenty of the footy, Irra is doing many useful things, Overall and McLeod had some good patches,while Gulden, Crabb, Daniels, Schwarz and Taylor all played mean games, and Daniel Bass has given us a great start from the centre bounce and throw up around the ground which gives Crossy a decent look at the footy to get us moving.

Today showed that the South Adelaide Football Club has turned the corner, is not afraid of other teams and will not be pushed around and told to go home. Singing the club song after the game sounded so sweet.

Gutsy win by the boys!
Unbelievable spate of injuries, hitting at the business end of the season unfortunately...which made the win that much more courageous.
Well done to Gotchy singing on for another 2 years, & the belief he has instilled in our side.
Yes crowd numbers must be of concern to the club

Wow!! Great win!! A terrific effort by league and seconds especially considering the number of players missing.
It is hard to believe our luck with the spate of injuries but we have something special building at our club now. In the past we would have struggled to compete after losing that number of players but now every player selected grabs the opportunity and realises the effort required and doesn't shirk any issue.
