Game Review

With just a single point on the scoreboard at half-time, this match against the Southerners at Princes Park was already over. However, to their credit, the Blues found some spirit in the second half and at least prevented another blowout.

An awful season had ended at last. It was time for a cleanout, and some serious thought about the future of the club.
