Glenelg v West Adelaide – 3 April 2016 at Glenelg (Gliderol Stadium)
Taking on the reigning premier is never easy, although we did speculate optimistically last week that the Bloods might still be hungover from their 2015 Premiership.
So it apparently proved! Despite or perhaps because of your correspondent’s inability to attend due to a previous commitment, the Tigers made a bright start, kept a handy lead due to a 5-2 return in the second quarter, and blitzed the enemy in the final quarter with a devastating 8-0 return. All played well, reportedly, with multiple goal-kickers R. Kirkby (3), W. Rioli (3), Sawford (3), J. Scott (3), C. Alleway (2),and Captain Andrew Bradley (2) (discarding his No. 11 for a No. 5 guernsey in honour of Club Legend, Peter Carey) outstanding.
GLENELG 21.14 (140)
WEST 9.11 (65)
