Glenelg v North Adelaide, Queen’s Birthday, Monday 13 June 2016.

After a long lead-up to this game, an important one, especially in light of the launch of the ‘Save the Tigers’ campaign, with a good and good-natured holiday crowd, we really expected better, although we’ve had trouble with North recently.  The Bays were thrashed, and thrashed all day, losing every quarter, despite a strong final term effort.  North were simply faster, more focused and made few errors.  With the visitors leading 16 goals to 4 at three-quarter time, it was a relief to end-up only having our score doubled, not tripled.

This makes the finals a somewhat academic proposition, unless a gigantic reversal of form and fortune can see us beat top team, Sturt, this Sunday.  But then, we’ve engineered comebacks against Sturt before…

Glenelg 10.14 (74)    North Adelaide 23.10 (148)

At least it didn’t rain…
