Frankston Dolphins v Blues - Round 16

Big game in context of the season for both teams, Blues obviously to keep a hold of eighth spot, Frankston to keep slim hopes alive but also to show that wins against good opponents are now a regular thing. Likely to be another rugged day at Frankston Park with a tough wind. What are people's tips?

Here are a few highlight clips to have a look at before tomorrow's game:

Haretuku's goal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxYf3V2ajHE&feature=c4-overview&list=UUSt...

Fox's huge mark over ruckman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeHZqtPv_34&feature=c4-overview&list=UUSt...

Clark and Lloyd back-to-back hangers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4qlkEOejCM&feature=c4-overview&list=UUSt...

Enjoy!

We've struggled against this mob in recent times Paul. Hopefully that changes today! Thanks for posting the highlight links mate....been plenty of them this year. Hopefully we can retain some of these blokes and advance next year!

The Northern slimes have had the wood on the dolphins for a few years now including some floggings. Frankston are far better equipped to break the drought today and keep their slim finals hopes alive. They need to win of course and hope the seagulls and Coburg win to keep their finals rivals within reach. It will be wet, soggy, slippery, maybe muddy and most likely windy making it a real slog today. Maybe this will suit the dolphins with enough desperation and of course what happened in the roosters game 2 weeks ago with the player count plenty incentive to win.

We really need to win the midfield battle today and keep the ball away from their tall timber. I doubt our lack of height in defence has gone un-noticed by anyone this season :)

Finals? Nope, that train already left. A good finish to the season and a commitment to next season from some of our key players would be an excellent way to finish what's been a really entertaining year at Frankston.

Brilliant performance from the boys today, leading all day by 3 goals at 1/4 time, 6 goals at 1/2 time, 8 goals at 3/4 time and then running out 13 point winners as the Blues picked up 14 free kicks to one in the last quarter!! Yes, 14 to 1!! Five goals from free kicks.

It didnt matter though, the Blues were never a chance to win and kicked the goal to bring it to 13 points after the 30 minute mark. Lloyd with another five goals and really set the game alight in the first half. Great day to be at Frankston Park and a pretty healthy crowd of around 800 made plenty of noise in the rain!

11 50-metre penalties must be some kind of record!

Indeed 11 fifties is a lot, but there was a lot of mouthing off out there, you'd think they players would learn the umps were wearing in new whistles!
