We couldn't find our rhythm against an impressive North Adelaide last night. Glenelg coach Narelle Smith has the wrap from our narrow loss in our round 2 clash in the SANFL Statewide Super Women's League. We will use the week to re-focus, recover and prepare for our next challenge against Norwood on Saturday March 4th at Coopers Stadium. As Narelle says, you have to lose games to learn how to win, so that is what we will do!
