We were promised a wet weather slog but it was almost perfect footy conditions. Unfortunately the standard was pretty poor, but we are talking about bottom 4 teams at the moment. We started well and had the rub of the umpires green in the first, but the D's fought back well their conversion rate was elite while ours was ordinary, 8.1 to 7.5 at the half. The umps had just about squared things up by halftime but were missing obvious frees for both teams an paying tiggy touchwood stuff. Third qtr was where we won the game with 4 straight to 2 points, we were delivering the footy better but not great, Perth appeared to tire but then kicked on well in the last. Both teams inaccurate, Perth 2.4 to Su 1.4. Giro was great as was Dela, the Hickmonts and the back 6 were great and the main reason for the win. Vanirsen was much improved, Robbins added some genuine pace and got better as the game went on. Hard to be too critical of our key forwards given the poor delivery. Losing a senior mid in Marsh early really impacted the rotations, Kitch was well held again, needs some more help in the mids. 

An uninspiring win but much needed. If we can get over WCER next week at pharking Optus, we hit mid season at 4 & 5 with a faint sniff of making finals, with all but WCER and maybe Perth in the hunt for the last finals spot. I think the top 4 is starting to look pretty set.

Agree there SS got the four points but nothing inspiring about the win. Vanirsen probably played his best game so far and looks suited to a centre square role rather than half forward tho he bobbed up with two important goals. Dela was great but looked banged up by the end of the game. Will probably be without Harry Marsh next week but Max Walters should be back and another must win ( as most games will be from here in !) against WCE.
