Round 8 Preview
Cygnet v New Norfolk at Cygnet at 2pm Saturday
NEW Norfolk is on the road this weekend on one of the longest away journeys to take on Cygnet after a comfortable victory over Huonville last week in Round 7 at Boyer. Brett Booth continues his great form for the Eagles as New Norfolk look to clear out on top of the ladder. Cygnet’s form has been consistent at home this year and the Cygnet boys will be keen to show a turnaround after a poor performance against East Coast Bombers last round.
The battle of the spearheads Ben Halton and Michael Thompson who have been racking up the goals could make this game one to watch. The players from the Port will have to compete for four quarters and be at their best to make this one a contest, but even given their home form so far this year it’s expected that the Eagles will once again be too strong and stay on top of the ladder.
