#3. Spot on. Instead of everyone bagging South how about you other clubs and players take a leaf out of their book, make some small sacrifices as players and team , knuckle down and train like men and down the track you too may reap similar rewards as South.
If not be happy with what you have and stop criticising players and clubs that do commit to achieve. Very simple really.

Pretty well nails it on the head. Worry about your own backyard before having a look at others.

If Pascoe Vale had of converted their easier chances they would have won 6-2 but it was not the case. Well done Hobart for your victory.

After getting so close to a result v Hume City the South lads have finally put together a terrific 90 minutes in which they defended so confidently and aggressively as a group - desperate committed defending and they battled the Pascoes all over the park. They dealt with the very skilful #10 Van Schip by getting extra bodies around him. They rode their luck here & there but so did the Pascoes. Pajari might've had a hat trick but take nothing away from the kid - his first goal in particular when he turned his marker was one that we all want to see centre forwards score. Congratulations to the team for a great victory.

South Hobart really are standard bearers for any Club in Tassie. Players have to sacrifice and they deserve the rewards they get.
