Eagles should win tight encounter

Southern Football League – Round 14 Preview
New Norfolk v Kingborough at Boyer Oval at 2pm Saturday

NEW Norfolk will be at home at Boyer Oval tomorrow to face Kingborough after a very comfortable away win last weekend away against last year’s grand final foe in Lindisfarne.

Josh Hall and 2012 William Leitch Medalist Michael Thompson kicked 11 goals between them last week, so Ash Humphrey will have his work cut out in his return game minding the key forwards. New Norfolk have only dropped one game so far this season and had a massive victory over the Tigers last time they met with Nathan Ross and Roger Belcher unstoppable out of the middle.

However, Kingborough coach Adam Henley and his men will give themselves every chance of causing an upset. The toughest marking job for the Tigers will be to keep an eye on Ross, who has been in great form all season and that task is likely to go to Tasmanian U23 player Matthew Schenk.

If Kingborough 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 away, but it’s expected that the Eagles will be too strong in a tight one and clear out on top of the ladder as they head up, up and away towards September action.
