A summary of match report, with thanks
Kai Watts took the chance to be Ganmain-Grong Grong-Matong's main man up forward with a five-goal haul in Saturday's comfortable win at Griffith. With George Alexander, Daniel Foley and Jacob Olsson sidelined through injury, small forward Kai Watts played out of the goal square in his best game of this season thus far. The 13.15 (93) to 3.10 (28) victory over the Swans extended the Lions' unbeaten start to four games, with a percentage of more than 300, before they host fellow unbeaten side Collingullie-Glenfield Park next Sunday.
GGGM's Michael Rothnie was a late withdrawal after hurting his calf in the warm-up, and coach Sam Martyn hoped it's only minor. "We were pleased with the manner we went about our footy. Griffith are very competitive, and they'll take a few scalps this year, because they can stay in the games for long periods of time," he said. It was great to see Kai find some form."
