Round 1 – 2019 – Review

Giants Daniel Lieschke, Matt Wegener and recruit Jack Duck lifted their work rate in the third term as the home side fought back to be within five points at the final change.

The blustery conditions made scoring difficult, with the Spiders kicking 1.5 to a solitary point in the final term to eventually win 9.15 (69) to 7.12 (54).

Howlong coach Beau Packer was happy to escape with the four points.

“It was a tough match and fairly physical,” Packer said.
