Grand final rematch rev up
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.
