Three minutes ago: no wonder so many supporters of this team have no hair left:
Blue and whites staring down the barrel of two straight defeats. Nastiest possible opposition to try to win over. They fell in by two points:
In what was another titanic, physically brutal clash between these now fierce rivals, the Cats timed their run to perfection, hitting the front in time-on in the last quarter after looking likely to lose for much of the second half.
Phew! My old heart can’t take too much of this stuff:
The Hawks, so brilliant … threw everything at the Cats in the closing minutes, but the premier’s water-tight defence held firm and the players rejoiced as they avoided a 0-2 start to the season.
Massive game – might be season defining. One thing my li’l old team always seem to do is serve up “classics”. For supporters, read “nailbiters”.
