ANGLESEA has strengthened its claims for a double-chance finish with a “hard-fought” 17-point win over Modewarre at Ellimatta Reserve.

The second-placed Roos, who were without spearhead Jordan Erskine for the first time since he arrived at the club, improved to a 7-2 win-loss record with the victory over the third-placed Warriors.

Coach Paul Nigro says the absence of the suspended Erskine forced Anglesea into some changes in its forward half.

“We had plans, in terms of method and delivery, and that didn’t go quite according to plan in the first quarter,” Nigro told The Wash-up podcast.

“We were our own worst enemy at times going forward, so we changed that around.

“But, we certainly had a lot more variation and different looks on how we set up in that forward half.

“Ultimately, Dale Carson when there in the second quarter as well.

“We certainly had plenty of different looks, and at the end of the day we had to share the load, and we did.
