Goals - M.Stagg 5, J.Duigan 4, M.Constable, K.Hopper 2, C.Whenan, M.Grossmann, D.Menner, C.Robertson

A win first up is always good and the 2nd and 4th quarters into the wind were really good. Dropped concentration in the 3rd.

A 100 point drubbing of a team that rarely loses on their home turf. For anybody who has been there, this win was truly satisfying. A consistent 4 quarter effort was reflected in the final result.

Achievements - Kevin Hopper 100th game

Ended up being a great game in front of a big crowd. At the end of the day, the 1st quarter cost us badly. We fought back well to be leading at 3 quarter time.

Goals - K.Hopper 11, C.Whenan 7, J.Duigan 3, M.Stagg 2, S.Thompson, S.Oatway

A frustrating first half where things just wouldn't click. The second half was superb. Great games from Hops and Clay.

Slow to start, but things got better as the day wore on. A good last half except for some inaccurate kicking.

An entertaining physical game that the Raggies took control of after half time. Promising debut from Tim Woolford with 3 goals. Raggies keep top spot.

A powerhouse first quarter. The game was pretty even after than but the Raggies finished well in the last quarter.

A bit sluggish all day. Did enough to get the points but there is certainly room for improvement.

A frustrating day where we couldn't get anything going. To Pooraka's credit they were hard at it all day. To play below our best and still notch a win was pleasing. Improvement is required with some tough games coming up after the bye.

Goals - C.Robertson 7, S.Harkin 3, J.Duigan, S.Willment 2, C.Murdoch, M.Stagg, B.Warner, A.Westergreen, T.Woolford

A good return to form against the 3rd side. After a slow start, the Raggies were on top for the last 3 quarters. Whilst Old Iggies kept our bigger forwards relatively quiet, the small forwards and runners caused them plenty of headaches.

A slow start but they were never in the hunt. Totally dominated after half time. Only problem is we suffered a couple of injuries we could do without. Bring on Payneham NU (who surprisingly lost to Flinders Park).

It was wet, we were hard at it all day. A very encouraging win in trying conditions. As Tod said, our best win of the year.

Blew them away early. The Raggies runners left them for dead. Great win going into the break.

After an ordinary first half, Luke Abell's move to full forward was the spark that was needed to completely outclass them in the second half.

Just didn't finish it off after being 9 points up early in the last quarter. Didn't help with injuries to Joey, Robbo and Thommo forcing them to sit it out at the end. They're a good side and are at full strength. The Raggies will get a few back before we meet again.

A strong second half up back restricted them to 2 goals and provided the basis for the win.
