PEEL Thunder forward Leroy Jetta was part of the WA team’s historic 63-point win against Victoria last Saturday.
Jetta kicked two goals in the side that was the first ever WA senior team to beat Victoria in Melbourne.
On 23 previous attempts, WA teams whether they be interstate matches, as part of carnivals, State of Origin or representative clashes, they have failed to find a way to beat the Big V in Melbourne.
And on the last attempt it was a day everyone in the WAFL would care to forget at the very same Port Melbourne venue in 2007 with a 119-point defeat.
The 63-point winning margin, (20.14 to 10.11) was a terrific reward for WAFL coach Michael Broadbridge and his staff who picked a squad who were experienced, had big bodies and were perfectly suited to play to the conditions on the small ground.
