Mack Truck Match Review - Pies fall out of 5 for first time in 2017

Andrew Thomson

Another 4 v 5 Clash on Saturday at Broadbeach, expectations high for a strong competitive game but Broadbeach had other ideas.

The Cats started strongly, 8 goals to 2 in the first quarter and they did not look back.  With some electric debutants on either wing for the Cats, the Magpies struggled to find a matchup.

However, like last week we had opportunites early but did not convert in front of goal - perhaps the story of the season thus far.

The experienced Cats played a great game and at times they really took the opportunity to put the foot down against a tired looking young Magpie outfit

To the Pies credit they worked hard to the final siren, and finished the game strongly to bring a hint of respectability to the scoreboard.

It was a day that the team will learn from. Great to see Doc Davis running into good consistent footy again with another strong effort, Pershouse lead and presented well throughout the day while Brodie Easton was the best of the midfielders with a strong performance

The challenge is well and truely with this young team to again find that strong ruthless game that they have shown they can play and finish the season well to setup a 3rd consecutive QAFL Finals campaign

Coach's Thoughts - Brydan Morgan

"It was a hard day today we did not bring our game and paid the price for not being at our best. They had some very good inclusions in this week and we really missed our injured players.

They moved the ball well, and well and truly did us on the outside with their speed, skill and worked their home deck nicely

I was pleased we continued to battle out the contest all day and am looking forward to rising to the challenge of the next few weeks "
