New Norfolk v Lindisfarne at Boyer Oval at 2pm Saturday
NEW Norfolk returns home to Boyer Oval from a massive win on the road against Dodges Ferry last Saturday to host last year’s grand final foe Lindisfarne this weekend. The Eagle machine is really starting to purr again and they look a complete outfit when you see William Leitch Medallist and 2012 leading goalkicker Michael Thompson back in his best form.
There is no tougher task than playing against New Norfolk at Boyer, but Lindisfarne coach Adrian Goodwin and his men took the points the last time the two teams played at this venue in last season’s second semi-final.
The toughest marking job for the Two Blues will be to keep an eye on Nathan Ross who has been in great form in the first four rounds. If Lindisfarne can get first hands on the football and not allow the Eagles too many avenues to goal, they are a big chance to snare an upset win on the road, but it’s expected that the Eagles will be too strong and should register their third win for the season.
