Game Review

Stephen Silvagni produced a masterly display at full-back, holding Tony Lockett to a handful of possessions and two goals, as the Blues stormed home to record their first win of the season.

Craig Bradley was outstanding, racking up 41 disposals, 27 kicks & 14 handballs, whilst Stephen Kernahan was suberb in attack with five goals, but the win was soured when promising forward Simon Minton-Connell broke his leg late in the game, having booted three goals. The injury would sideline him until Round 11.
