This Saturday our Lady Blues will have their second last hit out for the Home and Away season as they take on the Ulverstone Robins at the Ulverstone Recreation Ground. The Blues went down to the Robins earlier in the season and redemption is on the line here. Kirby Gibbons, Emily Bath, Lila Wijesingha-Frohmader and Nicole Poke have been in great form and will be looking to deliver another high-performance game following last weekend’s disappointing loss to the Demons.
At the Devonport Oval against the Magpies, we have all three games against some quality opposition.
Our Under 18 boys had a fantastic win last week, getting back on the winners list with their victory against Latrobe.
Led by Captain Ben Callaghan, the boys showed plenty of class against the Demons in wet conditions, with the likes of Brady Clarke, Billy Streets, Harry Cox, Jackson Beattie and Matthew Kemp putting in best on ground performances.
The top of the table undefeated reserves will not be complacent knowing the talent Devonport can bring to the field. With the very narrow win last week the team will be wanted to put together a full four quarter performance, that they have been struggling with over the past month to give the team the confidence they know they can have on the eve of the home and away season.
The seniors defence will have their hands full containing the forward line of the Magpies, Sammy Mitchell has been sound all year along with Jordan Wood and Will Dau returns to side to add some strength alongside and experience alongside Dylan Bramich.
Up forward, Matt Elliott, Chris McDonald and Jack Templeton kicked 7 out of our 10 goals last week and with the likes of Liam Viney, Fraser Eaton and Jonty Lanham looming around the forward half, goals should not be a problem with effective delivery from the midfield.
