Although not the fastest, most exciting, or most important game from the Worlds this year, I think it’s the best.
The game has character, narrative and skill. The Guardians and Clobber Politics’ different personalities and styles make for a classic sporting match-up. But ultimately, The Guardians’ patience and composure wins out.
The Guardians play a low-tempo game, retaining energy for the rest of the tournament. There are positive knock-on effects from this confident strategy: it gives you time to become acclimatised to the often alien courts and it leaves your team in a slightly deeper position that absorbs attacking play and creates counter-attacking opportunities.
Great goals by Cody, too.
