Round 3 (Haw 145 – Carl 90)
Alas our winning start to the season has come to an end. Against a rampant flock of Hawks the Pies were harassed and harangued and ultimately defeated.
Pendles and Swanny were immense as always in the middle and it was great to see Cloke and Elliott each post sizeable goal tallies. However I’ve taken inspiration this week from a new Pie – Ben Hudson. Now at his fourth club, and after initially being brought in an a coach, Huddo showed on Sunday he’s still got it. Filling in manfully for Jolly in the ruck the big guy even showed some rover-like skills with a snap and a quick handball or two. Maybe more facial hair is the answer when we come up against an up-and-about Tigers outfit on Saturday.
