Lions hit finals form

WHOROULY has finally rediscovered the sort of form that led it to last year’s grand final.

WHOROULY has finally rediscovered the sort of form that led it to last year’s grand final, comprehensively outpointing Moyhu on Saturday to record a 38-point victory.

The Lions were on top from the get-go, and in a low scoring match their 3.5 to 0.4 second quarter proved pivotal.

Lions assistant coach Richie Leahy said the victory was a result of 21 players being on the same page and applying constant pressure.

“When we played Moyhu earlier in the year they smashed us with their pressure and their run,” Leahy said.

“It’s funny how when you can turn it around and make sure you are the ones putting on the pressure, suddenly the game opens up and you get a bit of run, and then it’s hard for them to chase.

“We got off to a good start and just kept that pressure on them the whole way through.”
