We need win and some luck

North Coast Weekender - - Sport - with Bill Mon­aghan

WE were beaten soundly by Su­bi­aco, but the good news from last week­end was that Perth beat East Perth, a re­sult that kept our sea­son alive.

Of course, we’re re­liant on the Lions beat­ing the Roy­als on Satur­day but we can’t con­trol what hap­pens there.

We just need to en­sure we beat Clare­mont at Clare­mont Oval on Satur­day to put our­selves in the box seat if the other re­sult does fall our way.

The last time we faced the Tigers they de­feated us by two points so there’s not a lot we need to do dif­fer­ently against them this time around.

We fought back late in that game and had the op­por­tu­nity to win it af­ter the siren.

Dean Munns could pos­si­bly go to Jye Bolton as he has done in the past, but that’s not a cer­tainty.

Our fo­cus needs to be win­ning the game rather than any par­tic­u­lar player.

Steve Po­tente and Scott Nel­son could be a chance to come into the se­nior side, but we’re un­cer­tain at this stage. Both have been out for mul­ti­ple weeks. I would ex­pect Mitch An­to­nio to hold his spot af­ter mak­ing an en­cour­ag­ing de­but for us against the Lions.

We played some good football against Su­bi­aco in the first and third quar­ters but, like most the sea­son, could not take full ad­van­tage of our good work.

It blew out in the last quar­ter and was ul­ti­mately a dis­ap­point­ing day in the 19.14 (128) to 6.10 (46) loss at Leed­erville Oval.
