Sunday afternoon’s victory over the West Coast Eagles was a gritty, hard-fought win for the boys.

The trip to Perth is without a doubt one of the toughest in AFL football, so to come away with the four points was vital for our club, particularly in a competition as close as the AFL is this season.

The win was our eleventh consecutive victory, which is an achievement, but that is certainly not what drives us.

We never look further ahead than the challenge in front of us, and this week that challenge is against Carlton at the SCG.

Like every match, this week’s game is vitally important and we need the support of our members and fans in the stands this Saturday night.

We’ve been lucky enough to attract some big crowds this season, including our fourth biggest crowd ever against Port Adelaide in round 13 as well as a huge turnout against Geelong in Indigenous Round earlier this season.

The SCG is our fortress and when the crowd gets going, we get going and that’s why we need a big red and white crowd to pack the stands this Saturday night when we face the Blues.

There is no doubt that a big home crowd, particularly when we face a quality opposition, can be the edge we need to get over the line.

Carlton’s last month of football has been impressive, and they certainly are a team on the rise. They will be looking to take a big scalp before the bye round, which is why this weekend’s match is critical.

We need you to rally your family and friends and make some noise on Saturday night to help drive the team home.
To those that are already members – thank you for your constant support and we really hope to see you, and hear you, at the game on the weekend.

For those that are looking at purchasing a ticket and heading to the game, there are great tickets across the stadium still available.

We’ve also put together a $50 family ticket* so you and your family can come and support the boys. Simply click here to redeem and use the password FAMILY50.

Once again, we thank you for your ongoing support this season and hope to see you on Saturday night.
