ROUND 8 of the SFL has some interesting matches this Saturday, including the local derby of New Norfolk v Brighton in a night game at Pontville.
New Norfolk's former multiple premiership coach Matthew Smith has transitioned across to the Robins as coach this season and will be very keen for his young side to lift this week and excel against the Eagles. Clark and Scott have been valuable contributors for the Robins so far.
The Eagles will be looking to get back on the winners board and set up a chance to march up the ladder in the back half of the season. Marcus Parker has been contributing well up forward along with the ever reliable Mark Horne and Blair Wardlaw. Tipping the Eagles by four goals.
