Allen Jakovich enjoyed his nine goal haul, patting Tony Francis on the backside after his fourth, then doing a soccer style arms out airplane celebration after kicking his eighth off the ground. "I just like to show my emotions" he said after the game.
Best were G. Lovett, Stynes and Tingay. David Neitz was reported for striking Tony Francis with a forearm to the head during the first quarter but cleared after a Francis admitted to the tribunal that he'd been tackled across the chest.
