I take it from that we have won our first ever game, (all be it a practice one). Go Lady Blues!!

Should fans be flocking to watch?

Hell yeah. Standing in the outer at Princes Park, it felt like how footy used to be. Jump the fence and listen to the quarter-time address, you’re so close you’re virtually part of the huddle.
It’s a different game to the one we’re used to, but equally engaging.
Shorter quarters are a winner, too (15 mins plus time-on).
Individual players will make an impression, whether it be the aerial work of Carlton’s Vescio or the pin point kicking of Demons defender Paxman.

Excellent result for the blues yesterday.

Looking forward to seeing how the 16 a side goes.

Looks like the coach has a strategy of defence early then run later in the game.

Coach's thoughts
Damian Keeping wrote:
“The result is really pleasing so early on and gives us great reward for effort, however, we’re under no illusions to the fact that there’s a lot more work to be done before Round 1,” Keeping told Carlton Media.

“The work rate was really significant on the back of a hard pre-season building a strong fitness base to finish games well. The perseverance to find a way to get on top after being challenged early on was terrific.

“The pressure early on was of a really high standard and we knew Melbourne would come out firing being the proud and talented group that they are.”
