Beard was at the helm of the Saints’ perfect football storm converting a constant stream of opportunities supplied by his teammates up field.

“I knew I’d kicked a few, but I didn’t realise I’d even got up to 10 until Elbows (Saints teammate Andrew Elbourn) called out from behind the goals ‘that’s a dozen’,” Beard said.

“All I was concentrating on doing was getting back to the goal square and leading, the boys were just sending it down my throat lace up.

“It’s the best we’ve moved the ball.

“I was lucky to be on the end of it.”

Luck had very little to do with it as Beard amassed the bulk of the Saints score of 27.21-183 to Warners Bay’s 1.2-8.

Accurate set shots from leading and pack marks were interspersed by snaps from crumbing opportunities.

He started with two goals in the first term, a five goal second quarter, seven in the third and finished with three in the final.
