Weekend footy preview

Southern Football League – Round 17 preview
New Norfolk v Cygnet at Boyer at 2pm Saturday

THE Eagles return home to Boyer Oval this weekend to host Cygnet after going through the motions against the other team from the Huon Valley last weekend. How will Cygnet plan to stop the team that has won 15 on the trot and at the same time keep their faint finals hopes alive?

New Norfolk has lost only one game so far this season and the team is coming off huge victories over all-comers. All the same, Cygnet must believe they have a chance of causing a boil over on the road where New Norfolk are an even tougher opponent.

The story is the same as always. Cygnet will simply need first hands on the football and to deliver options to the two key forwards in SFL leading goal-kicker Ben Halton who has 74 for the season and Michael Darcy to stay in the contest in each quarter to attempt what no-one has done since April.

It’s expected that the Eagles will be too strong once again as they continue their lead-up to finals action. A win would all but secure the minor premiership with one more round to go after this one.
