Eagles at the top of the pack
Round 10 reviewed
NEW Norfolk continued its undefeated start to the season by seeing off Brighton at Pontville on Saturday. On a chilly, mixed weather day, the Robins had some good patches during the game but none of that mattered as the Eagles were still too strong and kept them at bay throughout the day.
The Eagles sit atop of the SFL ladder clear of the pack, and although the pack is still on their heels, if the Eagles keep on their present path they could bring home the premiership cup. They still have the likes of Lindisfarne, Claremont, and the rest of the top five to prevail over, but the good form continues for the Eagles even though it's a one-week-at-a-time deal for them.
In other games Cygnet got a big win over Dodges Ferry; Huonville kept itself in the hunt by beating Hobart; and Claremont inflicted more pain on Sorell. As we enter the run home, the fight for finals places starts here.
