[quote="caseyscorp"][quote:8a9b5cec02="footyman"]Oh yeah, and Williamstown is on the beach. Your ground is way, way inland chief.[/quote] The wind was northerly on Sunday, had nothing to do with proximity to a beach. Williamstown is a very open exposed ground to a strong northerly.[/quote]Thank you Rob Gell. Making more job applications by the day. Trying to get a gig with Casey Council as a representative for Casey Fields, now you're auditioning to be a weatherman too. What next?

Depends on what openings there are.

At least I know you'll be good for a reference.

[quote="footyman"]And how about Casey? 7 wins from 7 games at home this year, but not as good on the road. Going to be competitive in the finals? Suppose it depends if they get the first final at home![/quote] Just to put a little perspective on those comments. Casey has lost 4 games on the road out of 6. Two of those have been to the top 2 teams. One other was in Round 1 against Sandy - Casey was well on top until St Kilda directed the coach (hopefully he has since developed more resistance since) to pull off Goddard at 1/2 time and Jones at 3/4 time. The other loss was against Tassie in Tassie - a bogey fixture for the Scorps. We've got Werribee, Box Hill, Frankston and Collingwood to go as away matches, as well as 3 home games against Tassie, North Ballarat & Coburg.

Its dissapointing when a golden opportunity could put the Scorpions on top. As i said before i suppose it's part of a closer relationship with St. Kilda but it's gut wrenching when we're right in with a chance.

So much good work went into that 3rd term to keep Williamstown to within two goals, yet the first fifteen minutes of the final term was all Willy, despite kicking into the wind. Poor ball use, but more importantly beaten out of the centre. I thought that Peter Street and Jason Cloke in particular were very good in that final term; Picken another. I remain unconvinced by the Scorpions chances against the best sides, but they contributed to a very high standard game on Sunday. Well done to both sides - was great to watch. I'd like to single out Ben McDonald too for some praise - small bodied and inexperienced, yet battled really well man-on-man with the much larger Dean Galea in the 3rd Quarter. For someone whose senior career only stretches back to Round 8 (when he was a last minute inclusion against Port Melbourne), he was impressive in his surity.
