    About time that they paid a sling tackle.

    I've think I've jinxed us. Since I turned it on in the 2nd quarter, it's been all Port Adelaide. We have only scored a behind.

    Piss off bounce! That Molloy kick was going straight through.

    Never mind, Hamilton goals!

    Cynthia just disproved that theory.

My only criticism is that if they were going to play HTB against McEvoy in defence in that second quarter when she had no prior and was in the process of kicking as she was tackled (ie making a legitimate attempt to dispose with no prior), there were at least two that should have been paid in our favour - one to Kennedy at half forward near the wing in the first quarter, and one to us in defence early in the second quarter (I can't remember the tackler).

    Overall it's a highly entertaining contest. The two teams look quite well matched. Shame Privitelli couldn't convert that last shot at goal.
    My comment had nothing to do with the raw free kick count Liz - completely the opposite.

    More the absolute lottery of what was being called one second, then not the next second - as you described an example of in the second part of your comment.

    There was a serious lack of consistency in general in the calls in the second quarter.

    How many times have our players been whacked in the head today?

    I wonder if our recruiters had any idea, how much of a ball magnet Gardiner would be? While her disposals can be a bit hit or miss, she really is a perpetual motion machine.

    Yep absolutely. Good to see, although I'm sure the locals aren't enjoying it quite so much haha

    Handy goal. And I think Cockatoo-Motlap has done something illegal every time that the ball has been near her.
