Crows crowd Ea­gles out

Wanneroo Times - - Wafl - with Josh Kennedy

WHILE it is al­ways dis­ap­point­ing to lose – and tough to watch at home – I was proud of the per­for­mance of the boys against Ade­laide last Sat­ur­day.

It is al­ways chal­leng­ing on the road and while we have had some suc­cess at Ade­laide Oval, it is dif­fi­cult in that en­vi­ron­ment, es­pe­cially when the op­po­si­tion get a bit of a run-on.

Clearly you go into ev­ery game with a mind­set and plan to win the game and we gave our­selves ev­ery chance with a few po­si­tional changes and a cou­ple of tweaks to the brand.

We were look­ing pretty good at three-quar­ter time, but the Crows re­sponded and their first 10 to 15 min­utes of the last quar­ter were over­whelm­ing. A cou­ple of their key play­ers sprang to life, their crowd got in­volved and un­for­tu­nately we could not con­tain them.

Be­ing a lounge room spec­ta­tor is not much fun, so hope­fully my in­jury mends quickly and I’ll be back soon, along with Jack Dar­ling, Tom Bar­rass and Mark LeCras.

As a club we have some big chal­lenges com­ing up and it would be nice to be a part of it. We play GWS next Sun­day and then Collingwood at the MCG, so they could be im­por­tant matches that help to shape our sea­son.

While the losses st­ing, ev­ery club tends to go through flat spots in a sea­son. We are in one at the mo­ment, but you are only ever a win away from get­ting back on track.
