Game Review

In a torrid affair, there was little between the two sides throughout the match. The 14 point difference in Footscray's favor at the final siren was the biggest margin throughout the afternoon. Despite the loss, the Blues are still heading for a top three finish. The big name recruits had varied days and although it was not a big day for Stephen Kernahan on the forward line, he played well in the ruck. Craig Bradley, whose average possesion rate is 26 per game, had 24 possessions on Saturday. Also, Jon Dorotich is a pretty impressive player at centre half-back. Ken Hunter is in outstanding form with an average of eight marks per game and is a great springboard for attack. He was the pick of a very tight backline that restricted Footscray to just seven goals. - Mick Malthouse Inside Football.
