TRIAL GAME #1
Played in hot conditions at My Money House Oval, the quarters were reduced to 23 minutes flat. We started well kicking a goal within the first few minutes to settle us into the game and set up a strong 1st quarter.
Centrals had the better of the clearance battle early and were able to generate good field position off the back of their stoppage work. We adjusted at the half time break in a few areas and gained back some ascendancy around the contest in the 2nd half to even up the clearance numbers.
Our ball use was very pleasing in terms of kick totals and efficiency and we were able to transfer the ball cleanly in transition generating 49 inside 50s to give our forwards every chance.
Defensively, we worked together well and created pressure on Centrals and we had more turnovers in the 2nd half to give us repeat entries.
Overall it was a strong performance against a Centrals team that looks very fit and runs the ground very well.
TRIAL GAME #2
Started well again off the back of some strong centre clearance work and pressure in the front half. Kicked with a slight breeze and scored well but North had more of the ball.
In the 2nd quarter, the centre clearance ledger swung in North's favour and they were able to generate more inside 50s and apply pressure to our ball use on the way. Our ball use was below expectation and we coughed up some easy goals but to Norths credit their pressure was good.
The 2nd half was an even competitive battle and both teams had their momentum swings and opportunities.
Overall North won the inside 50 battle through better ball use, but to grind away and never give up and give ourselves a chance to win was very pleasing.
We had 3 repeat entries late to set up 3 shots and finish with our noses just in front. There was great benefit in having a solid, hard fought, contested hit out against another good team in North Adelaide to end our pre-season games and prepare us well for round 1.
