Round 11 Preview - New Norfolk v Brighton at Boyer
THE stage has been set for former AFL star and Yarrawonga spearhead Brendan Fevola this Saturday when he again pulls on the Eagles' number 25 jumper and another bumper crowd is expected to make its way to Boyer Oval.
The Eagles have dominated the competition in the first 10 rounds of the 2013 season with only one loss to date and have won convincingly against major challengers such as Claremont and Kingborough, so you would expect a goal feast against cellar dwellers Brighton.
Michael Thompson has been in great form leading the Eagles attack but he may be asked to clear some space as Fevola returns to the key post for this game and he is sure to set himself a target to beat his record haul of 18 goals in 2012 against Huonville.
Brighton’s younger players, particularly the impressive Callen Daly, have been leading the way this year. The Robins will take some hope into this game and should have learnt from a much improved effort against the East Coast Bombers last round displaying more team-style football and showing something closer to a four quarter effort.
New Norfolk should maintain its winning form at home and they should continue to be the pacesetter this season in what may be a cricket-score total.
