How good was Friday night! The start of the round. Another weekend of Supercoach for us. And to top it off, Tommy Highmore makes it back into the team! A late in for the Saints and a big win for plenty of coaches, a number of whom were no longer having to contemplate a donut in their defence.
It’s a strange feeling coming to the end of a weekend without having major issues. This weekend was reasonably uneventful considering the last three weeks (or seven weeks for some). Of course, we’ve all got issues, but from a Supercoach perspective we had no major injuries, no inconsiderate reports, and no significant concussions. To be fair, we didn’t really have any major scores either but that’s something we all have to deal with.
The Eagles welcomed the Bombers to Perth and to some strange weather for an entertaining pre-season clash which saw the visitors impress early and hold on for an 8 point win. There was a 20 minute break early in the second quarter due to safety concerns amid lightning storms in the area meaning the game was played in mostly wet conditions.
