Every time you looked at Jimmy Aish he had a football in his hands. He amassed a career high 31 disposals and it was as if he brought a boat load of his own footballs. On this episode of the Restump Podcast we talk everything Freo victory in this review of the Fremantle V Gold Coast clash from Saturday evening.
We don’t want to be too negative but if you didn’t scratch both of your eyes out to save yourself watching that first half, you have supreme will power. However, it was the transition to some quality ball use on the run home that brought us all to life….. and allowed a few of us to watch but sadly most of us to only listen!
It was a beautiful gesture by the Gold Coast Suns to show some compassion for our injury sidelined absentees. In the spirit of great sportsmanship, they kicked a Nat Fyfe-like 1 goal 8 points first half.
Jimmy Aish has to receive best on ground honours, a tailor has taken Sean Darcy’s jacket measurements for a particular end of season prestigious event and we’re all feeling like the cat that got the cream knowing we collected Josh Treacy from the rookie draft.
There was collective sigh of relief post-match knowing Alex Pearce got through the game unscathed and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when he was interviewed later….. well of the eyes that weren’t scratched out early on at least.
Taylin Duman played arguably his career best game, the Conca Truck didn’t go to Sexton as we thought but he did a number on the dangerous Izak Rankine and Brett Bewley put in a more than serviceable performance after a long time out of the side.
Jojo questions Tim Gossage and his troll patrol baiting Fremantle supporters and the Chief doesn’t like the Footy Rhino swindling the term “Dockery” from our fellow podcasting colleagues, Duck and Oz of the Purple Reign fame, and claiming it as his own.
The Shai Bolton chatter is growing, the Chief rolls out another episode of the Neighbourhood Watch and Jojo has a topical Closing Quandary.
It wasn’t overly pretty but there is nothing like a victory and 4 points to dull that first half ugliness.
We’re all up and about with a pep in our step and a glide in our stride as we strut into the midseason bye for a well-earned rest. And that’s where we come in, click play on this overly celebrated 50 plus minute purple prized party and be assured you’ll get plenty of rest…. we’ll put you straight to sleep!
