SFL Round 18 preview

Southern Football League match preview
Round 18 - Provided by SFL League Management

Dodges Ferry v New Norfolk at Shark Park, 2pm Saturday
New Norfolk and Dodges Ferry will both be seeking strong wins this weekend, and this match will be a tough competition for them both.

New Norfolk is fighting to stay in the top three at the moment and a win for them is crucial this close to the finals. The Eagles played off in the Grand Final last season and for a chance to do that again they will need to work hard to earn a win this weekend and secure their position.

Dodges Ferry have had losses for four weeks straight and will be fighting hard against the Eagles to break their streak of poor form and come out with a win.

The Eagles are likely to prevail this weekend but it would be good to see Dodges Ferry put up a strong fight and earn themselves a win over New Norfolk in front of their home crowd.

Huonville v Claremont at Huonville
The reigning premiers are likely to defeat the Lions on the road this week, although it won’t be without a fight.

Sorell v Cygnet at Pembroke Park
Cygnet is currently fourth on the ladder only by percentage so a win is crucial if they want to stay in the top three and stand a strong chance in the finals. Sorell is still on the bottom of the ladder, so it’s safe to say it’s likely that Cygnet will take the points this week.

Hobart v Lindisfarne at the TCA Ground
Lindisfarne remains undefeated for the 2016 SFL season, so it seems easy to predict that the Two Blues will come out with another win in Round 18 against the Tigers.
