There were no official umpires for the game and the two clubs had to provide the umpires. Glebe Under 17 and second grader Will Brine kindly agreed to blow the whistle. Thank you, Will, for your services, we appreciate you contribution.
Saint George were a slick, skillful team with some fast forwards. They moved the ball very well and had Glebe under constant pressure for the first 55 minutes of the game. Glebe was outplayed for most of the game and SG deserved their victory. Glebe came back strongly in the last 15 minutes as SG tired just a little and it nearly snatched a draw.
It was a keen tussle all game with plenty of physicality and heavy tackling. It was no place for the faint-hearted tonight.
