SUNS co-captain Jarrod Witts believes the SUNS are starting to see the rewards from their efforts after back-to-back wins at Metricon Stadium.
The SUNS had a big victory over West Coast in Round 2, then picked up where they left off against Adelaide on Sunday to record the club’s first-ever AFL win over the Crows.
“It’s really good to see all the work that we’re putting in is starting to pay off,” Witts told SUNS Media post-match.
“We started well again today, the points didn’t come straight away but eventually we just pounded away and got the rewards.”
The focus this season has been about putting in a reliable performance each week.
That didn’t go to plan in Round 1, but Witts believes the club has shown what they’re capable of in the two ensuing rounds since.
“I think it’s just about being a consistent team,” he said.
“It’s understanding that pressure builds momentum and that’s what we’re trying to achieve.
“That’s the side we are is a pressure team that wants to play it in their forward half and everyone’s buying in.”
Sunday saw Metricon Stadium host 2,000 members in the crowd for the first time this year.
Witts said their presence made a difference to playing in an empty stadium, and he was glad the team was able to put in a performance the loyal members could be proud of.
“It’s so important (to have their support),” he said.
“Even though there was only 2000 of them here we definitely got a buzz from it and you could feel the atmosphere heavily in our favour.
“We’ll take it at the moment and it’s good for them to be able to get the reward as well with a couple of wins now.”
The club’s next assignment is taking on Fremantle in Round 4 at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night.
