Tigers Fish Out Dolphins
Werribee continues their string of wins with an 80 point blow out at home against Frankston.
Right from the opening bounce the Werribee boys looked switched on and scoring the first goal inside a minute set up their total domination of the day. The winless Frankston had moments, but it was a cool, calculated and methodical Tigers outfit that lead from start to finish. Daniel Currie set the tone with a best on ground performance not only in the ruck, but at both ends of the ground and kicked 5 goals. It was the manner of the win that really pleased senior coach John Lamont.
“The players were right on the job from the word go, they were tackling hard, sharing the workload on a couple of lockdown jobs in the midfield. From a coach’s point of view it was really pleasing. It was a game where the players probably could have cut corners and still won it, but there was none of that, our blokes were right on the job. Everyone is buying into what we want to achieve as a group, and that includes the new boys to the club. They are building their trademark, and how they want to be perceived, and Michael Sodomaco deserves a bit of credit for that”.
One of the pleasing aspects of the day was the return to football of the Tigers skipper in the development game which saw the side get its first win of the season under coach Daniel Fraser.
Lamont say the positives in that game.
“We were goal less at half time but I think the inside 50 count was pretty similar, we just stuffed up some chances. It was good to get Sodomaco and Redfern back on the field, and get another game under Christensen’s belt. We want the development squad to win, but we want them to be playing the type of footy we want, so when anyone comes up they are ready to go and play their role. A bloke like Matthew Brett is showing signs that when the time is right he is going to be able to come in and play a role. That is really important”
Werribee sit on top of the VFL ladder for the second week but travel to Trevor Barker Beach Oval this week to take on Sandringham a side that Lamont rates very highly.
“I have a healthy respect for the Sandringham list, it will be another important test for our boys”.
