Eagles should win final match tomorrow

Southern Football League – Round 18 preview
East Coast Bombers v New Norfolk at Triabunna, at 2pm Saturday

FOOTBALL returns to Triabunna this weekend as New Norfolk hits the road for the final roster match of the season to meet the East Coast Bombers. New Norfolk is the hottest ticket in football at the moment and with top spot on the SFL ladder secured no matter the result of this round, the first week off during the finals could not come at a better time to allow some recovery from the 18 rounds.

If New Norfolk can take the field still delivering on the same game plan as shown over the last two months, it should register a comfortable victory as has been the case in all but one game this season. But they will need to consider the challenge of playing the Bombers very seriously as the men from the East Coast have provided some real competition in the first half of this season and are in a battle with Huonville for the last spot in the finals.

A closely marked target for the Bombers will obviously be “The Weapon” Nathan Ross who was best on ground last week against Cygnet and seems to have the measure of every player who is assigned the task of stopping him. The Bombers are strong opponents at home but the tip is the Eagles will win by six goals and enjoy a week’s break before the second semi-final.
