A summary of match report, with thanks
The Griffith Swans have now tasted back-to-back defeats following a seven-point loss to Wagga Tigers at Exies Oval. Despite the loss Swans' director of coaching Adrian Pavese was pleased with how his side performed. The side was hit by two late withdrawals including captain James Toscan whose wife went into labour on Saturday morning, but Pavese said he was pleased with how his boys stood up.
"With two changes at 11am, the morning before, it was never going to be easy," he said. "But the boys worked hard, and we went into the first break only down by two goals. "It is OK to be behind if you are in the contest and I thought we were performing well."
The Swans managed to take the lead moving into the final quarter however they lost a key player to a concussion. "Losing Jordan Iudica, who was playing really well, after he was knocked out right on half-time was a big hit," he said. "We have a two-week break now so he should be right for our next game." Pavese said the depth of the Swans as a club was again shown because with two late call-ups the reserve grade still managed to win their match. (By Liam Warren - The Area News, Monday June 5, 2017).
