SFL Season 2015
Round 17 Preview
By BEN HARRISON
SORELL hosts New Norfolk tomorrow and the home team Eagles supporters at Pembroke Park will be hoping that this clash is much closer than the last time these two teams met. Can the Sorell players find a method of play to keep them competitive against the Derwent Valley Eagles? It’s hard to see how but the home crowd will be cheering hard and if they approach the game with nothing to lose they may even surprise themselves.
New Norfolk cannot afford any complacency heading into the finals when playing games that seem winnable and need to show the same merciless attitude that Claremont has been in past weeks to prepare for what looms as one of the most competitive SFL finals series since 2012.
Mark Horne has been in terrific form for New Norfolk and should look to continue on his way and may even be a contender for the Best and Fairest at Boyer this season. At the same time it was good to see Mykal Wiltshire back amongst the goals for Sorell last round.
Player to watch: Mark Horne (New Norfolk)
Prediction: New Norfolk by 55 points.
