It was an enjoyable game even though we didnt get the result we were looking for. The Jungle was packed to the rafters and rocking!! unlike last year where it didnt really get going to the 2nd half of the year. I wonder if this has anything to do with the lack of tv coverage??. for the winners Groves was superb hitting big baskets and after reading the post match i think Gibson was a little stiff not to get a mention he's last 5 minutes were second to none to ensure the cats couldnt creep any closer! Horvath struggled big time maybe a little tired ?? Wortho also want his normal self and looked flat at times but was fired up when the final siren blew and gave the crowd a spray as he was booooed all night!!
For the Losers they look alright the cats Knight and Victor were great with the latter looking very scary on the boards. Redhage, and i'm agreeing with Brian here is not the same at the moment alot his touch is lacking a little in terms of finishing his hard work. The offence has a little way to go with alot of turnovers and trying to overpass the ball. PC looked at out sorts as well, and to be honest i'm not sold on the Hinson just yet either we need him to run the plays and there was very little structure in the cats offence last night.
Overall, Was a great game to start the year and looking forward to a massive year !!!
