Grand fi­nal re­match rev up

Joondalup Weekender - - Sport - with Greg Hire

WE face Illawarra at Perth Arena in a grand fi­nal re­match to­mor­row night and it’s not going to be easy for us to take two from two to be­gin the sea­son.

The Hawks will be an­noyed hav­ing lost to Cairns in the fi­nal minute last week after dom­i­nat­ing the game. They have a high oc­tane of­fence so we can’t let them get their con­fi­dence up.

Star shooter Rot­nei Clarke is com­ing off a 6-8 per­for­mance at the three-point line so we need to make sure we’re not starv­ing the op­po­si­tion of pos­ses­sion.

I thought our de­fen­sive ef­fort in the win against Bris­bane last Saturday could have been bet­ter.

You don’t get many wins when you al­low your op­po­nent to shoot more than 50 per cent from the field.

But I thought we ac­cli­ma­tised well to the phys­i­cal­ity of the game – it was a tough win.
