The view from cradle mountain

There was plenty of rain on cradle mountain but no cloud coverage of the first pre season game! 24 hours of blackout and all scenarios were possible. The demon supporters in our trecking group followed one mantra while on the last 24 hours of the overland trail – no injuries and being competitive would form the basis of the match report. After the initial dismay with the early Brayshaw news the final result and details of the game v Port made for a delightful bus trip home.

Delighted to see our two NSW Demons players Jack and James playing with confidence and intensity. James winning the ball, breaking tackles and demonstrating a smooth sidestep to deliver accurately by hand and foot. Jack was everywhere with his non stop two way running and strong tackling.

The determination of the team to play contested footy is evident – win the ball and the game flows our way. The recruits have increased competition in a number of different team roles and the developing depth is apparent. We now face a real challenge to name our best 22!
