Powell misses a set shot from 45m on the boundary to kick off the scoring at Manuka. (Q1 2:31)
Lukosius takes a link mark on outer wing and goes to Ainsworth running back behind Taylor to mark 40m out on a slight angle. His set shot is a peach for the first goal. (Q1 5:34)
Angwin gives to Haynes who tries his luck from 45m near the boundary, kick is straight but falls on the line to be rushed. (Q1 8:16)
Long roves a long speculator to the Giants hotspot but bounces between two tacklers like a pinball, HTB free paid to Daniels after Lloyd started it. Daniels converts. (Q1 9:58)
Casboult burns the footy by foot on outer wing to Bedford, fast counter leads to Greene marking over Long 35m out on the flank but his curling set shot stays right. (Q1 12:31)
The Suns handball their way through midfield on a rebound after half a dozen poor kicks were intercepted, but Ainsworth’s roller from 40m turns left for a point. (Q1 15:15)
Razor Ray’s possum hair hat is gleaming in the early afternoon Canberra sunlight. (Q1 18:14)
Not much quality in this game so far with both sides guilty of very poor skills, but Holman releases Oea to sprint away from congestion and goal from 15m. And loves it! (Q1 20:30)
Oea was too slippery for Cumming whose dive was despairing and in vain. (Q1 21:17)
Ward’s loose ball get and spin out of trouble is flashy in the middle, leading to a mark to Cumming 25m out on the flank. Cumming doesn’t kick many, that one is good. (Q1 23:03)
Powell tries to spin out of a Greene tackle after roving 15m out from his goal but the Tractor lowers the boom to win the HTB free for his first major. (Q1 25:02)

Lukosius leads Idun to the front of a pack to mark 35m out on a slight angle, he kicks truly just before the QT siren. (Q1 30:16)
Briggs bangs long after the first bounce of Q2, crumb over the back for Lloyd to run into the open goal. Simple, dumb footy sometimes succeeds. (Q2 6:53)
Greene screws a set shot narrow from 35m on the flank. (Q2 7:39)
Ashwin passes to the boundary 25m out for Greene to leap in front of Long and mark. Another screwing set shot goes wide, this one across the face. (Q2 10:39)
Callaghan’s running snap from 45m in the corridor is a shank but Brown marks on the behind line and converts. (Q2 11:40)
Greene draws a high contact free on Long leading to true CHF, this set shot goes straight over the goal umpire’s peaked cap. (Q2 17:40)
Himmelberg is pinged for an arm chop on Ainsworth deep in the pocket 30m out, Thor looking sore about it but it was there. Ainsworth kicks his second goal. (Q2 22:40)
Greene plays on past Miller on the mark 50m out on the flank but shanks OOTF. (Q2 24:55)
Lukosius marks a Casboult pass in the pocket leading in front of Taylor to 25m, he curls in his second goal. Suns hanging on here, Giants wasting some opportunities. (Q2 28:40)
Kelly roves in front of a trailing Flanders and strokes through a classy snap from 40m in front after Ward clears from the first centre bounce of Q3. (Q3 0:56)
Casboult marks an Oea pass on the boundary 25m out and threads a lovely drop punt for a goal! (Q3 2:26)
Just the single Cobra from Levi to celebrate that finish, needed the double for that quality! (Q3 2:56)
Coniglio to Whitfield for a run on outer wing, baulks past Hollands and spots up Angwin who feeds Daniels for the running goal from 45m. Classic orange tsunami. (Q3 6:37)
Kelly marks in front of Anderson at true CHF but shanks wide left… Brown marks deep in the pocket 10m out and goals! (Q3 9:25)
Riccardi has the sit for a long Haynes bomb from the HFF to the top of the square, drops it but the crumb flips over the back where Angwin is waiting for the goal. (Q3 11:54)
Long has had a mare of a day and it was he who went to the contest, didn’t kill it and left Angwin free for the crumb. (Q3 12:37)
King finally gets a kick to his advantage from Rowell from a stoppage on the wing, he marks in front of Taylor 50m out on a slight angle and misses to the right. (Q3 15:27)
Greene is favoured by a bouncing Cadman chaos ball on the HFF, he gathers and spins out of an Andrew challenge by to grubber home from 20m. (Q3 22:22)
Greene can’t mark a Whitfield pass over Powell in the pocket, he gathers and runs away to the boundary 20m out but shanks a checkside OOTF. Aww. (Q3 23:52)
Bedford receives from Daniels, baulks to the right of Ballard and snaps across his body from 35m in front for a nice finish just before the 3QT siren. (3 Qtr Time)
King has had a dirty day, but so have Riccardi and Cadman. Manuka is often a graveyard for tall forwards, it’s all about the medium and small forwards today. (3 Qtr Time)
