Grand final berth on the line tomorrow

Second Semi-Final – New Norfolk v Claremont 

Boyer Oval, 2pm Saturday

A grand final berth is on the line at Boyer Oval tomorrow as the Claremont Magpies accept the reward of their qualifying final victory and the right to take on minor premiers New Norfolk. Claremont captain Nathan Brown will return from a one-match suspension to lead his Magpies and he will need to be at his best if they are to have any chance against the well-oiled machine which has continued to dispose of all challengers so far this season.

If Claremont can take the field and execute coach Kim Excell’s game plan as they did in Round 1 against the Eagles, they could register another victory and a direct pathway to the grand final. The Eagles will need to consider the challenge of playing the Magpies with the right attitude as the have shown they are the rightful challenger to the Eagles’ title at this stage of the season.

There will be key targets for the Magpies all over the ground with the number one role being to blanket Nathan Ross who can ignite a game in no time at all. The key forwards will be hard to hold as Michael Thompson, Josh Hall and Zeke Gardam can easily open the floodgates in the spacious forward line at Boyer as they have done so many times so far this season.

The Eagles are looking the goods and the expectation is that they will set themselves for another Grand Final appearance come final-siren time on Saturday.
