It feels like it has only just begun but we half way through the shortened Football Season for this famous year 2020.
This year is full of “Who would have thought..?”. Monday night football? Port Power on the top of the ladder? Crows on the bottom? Collingwood losing by 66 points!!!! St Kilda in the top 4. Richmond out of the top 8.
The lines are getting blurred now between the rounds. Round 9 starts on Wednesday. Not much recovery time for injured players and not much training time either, especially when teams have to fly to another hub.
The West Coast Eagles are obviously happy little Vegemites being home in their own nest. They absolutely humiliated Collingwood on Saturday which was the birthday of their coach, Nathan Buckley. He probably wasn’t going to be much fun blowing out the 48 candles afterwards. It probably did not help the Pies to have Scot Pendelbury pull out before the game. The Eagles were absolutely unstoppable after half time, with Josh Kennedy kicking a total of 7 goals, Nic Natanui just being awesome and the whole team achieving the highest score of this season so far. 18 goals 3 points really shows that the Eagles are possibly back to their old premiership form now that they are safely home in WA.
