South v Eagles
Saturday 26 May
Hickinbotham Oval

Reserves: 11:30am
League: 2:10pm

South ended North's winning streak last week, while the Eagles continued their losing streak against Norwood. Will South keep their good form going at home, or will the Eagles bounce back?

On paper you would have to say the Eagles but I have a hunch that South might sneak a close win here. For some reason WWT aren't gelling this year and if South reproduce what they showed against North they will come home with the choccys.

Or if you look at the 2018 record North did to the Eagles what Norwood did . But the game between those two was Sturt . For some reason the eagles managed to beat the reigning premier but couldn't gell against North and Norwood .
You could he right uncle Huey but I hope your not .

Well done Eagles
Third quarter won the game kicking 6 goals
Sharrads goal to the northern end it was described as a
Reverse helicopter kick that went straight . Was a game winner . Some Eagles players put in the hard tackles bumps that seemed to rattle South.

It's Sunday before I head out. I'll be honest here by half time I was thinking I'll be leaving at 3/4 tune . Not sure what Gods said at 1/2 time the Eagles may have gelled . Or they took some angry pills same players different attitude .
Whatever it was it stopped an all fast running South in their tracks .
I for one wouldn't want to take a hip and shoulder from Sharrad let alone a Redden tsckle.

Sounds like the "pull the finger out" half time blast was effective.

Something changed in the Eagles Players uncle Huey that's for sure
Wasn't just the heavy hits on South players
Redden went down we thought oh no serious injury
Nope winded but it woke something up in him

But Gods mustve said something that worked
