Turning it around

Turning it around

We were rapt to have made an 80-point turnaround in the last 45 minutes or so to win the game by 38 points after being 42 points down.

But on the flipside of that, we need to be concerned about how we fell that far behind in the first place.

It�s happened to us a few times this season and we can�t let it become a habit.

It was pleasing to see a wide spread of goal scorers after our loss against Claremont where I thought we were one-dimensional in our regular attempts to get it to spearhead Michael Lourey when we went forward.

This weekend takes us to a very important match against East Fremantle at Arena Joondalup.

The weather forecast is not looking promising so that could have a big impact on how we approach the match. We�ve been looking to get more outside run in our game but that won�t be possible if we�re playing in the wind and rain.

It will be about getting small victories of yardage and locking the ball in our forward 50.

Tyler Keitel will be in our preliminary 25, but, again, if the weather�s bad there might not be much point in bringing him into the side. We expect Marcus Adams to return from a hand issue after the State game bye.

While it�s disappointing we haven�t beaten the Sharks in Joondalup since 2009, it�s not a record to which I give much thought.

East Fremantle Oval is a fairly windswept ground like Arena Joondalup so perhaps that�s why the Sharks enjoy conditions when they play at our home ground.
