Beachside to go up? Not likely after the showing today. It may be early in the season, but still...

what happened to Taroona, surely they would've had a full strength side today, they're only playing for 3rd & 4th tomorrow up north?

That result surprises me.......

ItAintFair, Taroona maintained the team that played the previous Summer cup games - a reserves squad with only a few (4 today) of the senior team that has been playing up North.
That was always the plan and we stuck with it.

That said - the guys played into Eagles hands today who used their experience (and talent) to good effect...no excuses really.

All the best to both teams in the final.
John - Taroona.

How about giving these old eagle boys a bit of credit, they always seem to find away to win the important games. They also do wonders with helping the younger guys that are not given a chance in the high leagues
