Bees too good. The second and third quarters were very good by Werribee. The second with the wind and third against the breeze won them the game. Daniel Currie is more than a handy player.

Two points on this: Werribee wearing the W is fantastic, I hope it returns as the full time guernsey next year, it made quite a contrast the Essendon, who looked like they were wearing retail jumpers with Lincraft iron on numbers on them.

Secondly, I know North Melbourne was playing at the same time, but it looked on TV like the crowd was pretty low. Would have thought a few more Bombers supporters would have turned out, it was potentially their last hit out of the year.

Go Borough!

Very interesting start to this game with comments from David Rhys -Jones to the effect that it was a joke that Essendon were allowed to play VFL Finals. As long as commentators can back their stance with a few facts it doesn't hurt to have them voice a controversial opinion.

I don't think the powers that be will be overly happy with Rhys-Jones, but I thought it was ok.

For mine Essendon should've had restrictions placed on them such as only being able to choose VFL and 1st year AFL listed players.

Have to say I was really disappointed with the Essendon support on Sunday.

I was expecting them to show up in good number, but in reality it was an average home and away type crowd.

Two points Rys Jones was 100% correect about Essendon seconds being allowwed to play and as I predicted there would not be a lot of support for the Bombers.

Geelong are the only AFL club that the fans get behind their Reserves VFL outfit even the supposed massive Collingwood Army dont bother to turn up in large numbers.

Ants,
You must remember that Rhys Jones is all Carlton & they hate Essendon. Carlton didn't hide their joy when they made the AFL finals by default.
Burraburger was right about the Essendon VFL side this week, one of their worst sides for the year. Wished they had have put that team on the park a week earlier.
Must admit I wasn't that impressed with Werribee, they will have to be a lot better than that to make a serious threat later.
Unsure if they can have any of the Kangaroos players that have qualified.
Didn't see the Port game who evidently must have played well.
That 5 goals start really comes in handy.
Sorry guys I just can't help myself.
