Shark study strategy for finals

Shark study strategy for finals

Lose the game and we can’t make the finals.

But there’s no point in thinking too much about that.

Our focus needs to be on what we can do to beat the Sharks.

If we can execute our plan as well as we did in our 56-point win over Swan Districts then I’m confident we can get the win.

We held a lot of possession and took a lot of uncontested marks, which was all part of the plan.

It was good to see our goals came from a variety of sources, including Laine Rasmussen who kicked his only two goals for the season.

We’ve been using him in the midfield the past three games, where previously he’s had a run-with role.

He was probably our best player up to half-time before he suffered a cork in the second half.

Steve Potente returned from injury to play three quarters in the reserves last weekend.

We need to decide if that’s enough match time to bring him straight back into the league side.

I’ve begun reviewing footage of South Fremantle’s derby victory over East Fremantle last weekend.

When reviewing games, generally I start with stoppages, then look at inside 50s, rebound 50s and watch passages of play where they may have dominated or the opposition has dominated.

I don’t watch matches in their entirety; the software we use allows us to isolate areas we want to focus on.

For example, if I wanted to concentrate on a dangerous goal kicker like Brett Peake, I might just watch his 20 edits in a row.

I find it’s an easier way to do it than watch a whole game, which leaves me with too many aspects to view all at once.
