    Looks like most of the senior boys are out there. Dew and Horse kicking the ball with Dews son?

    Good first quarter from the boys - Newman impressive, and Foote getting stuck in too along with Jones.

    Some interesting umpiring early in the 2nd quarter helping the giants gain some strong momentum....

    A very enjoyable game so far. Really tough footy, with a real arm wrestle feel about it. We were wasteful in that second quarter going forward, but are every chance if we can improve our disposal.

    Giants really had a lot of momentum in that second quarter, but wasted a number of excellent chances - despite the commentators getting more than a little excited on a number of occasions.

    First time I've watched Newman, the boy can kick. Any idea why he hasn't had a call up yet?

    Yes, I might be biased, but I thought that we could have got our first free, sometime before the 25 minute mark of the second quarter.

    Seems we don't get half the reward for good tackles that the giants are getting - as Ugg's stats show, we are doing well to be all square at half time.
