After a couple of home games, we, this Saturday migrate west to West Park Oval at Burnie to take on the Dockers.
Our Lady Blues have a bye this weekend, so it leaves us with just 3 games.
Brad Kelly’s Under 18’s are coming off the back of a very nice win, with standout performances from Brock Bugeja, Kody Bonner and Sam Shea, along with a nice spread of 8 goal kickers, the young lads will be keen to back up their confidence by winning again.
Inaccurate kicking in front of goals hurt Brocky Dicker’s Reserves, but were able to get the job done with Brock Stones again bagging a couple and Blair Gregson and Robert Talbot giving plenty all day. Rumor has it, Coach Brock Dicker has Saints Legend Steven Milne on the list but cant get him into the state due to border closures!!
The main event is set to be a beauty with Macca making four changes to the senior side.
Julian Brown and Will Huxtable are unavailable, Billy Streets will go back to the under 18’s and Mitch Hodgetts will sit the game out due to injury.
Under 18 Premiership players, Dylan Bramich, Liam Viney, Jordan Wood and Sam Mitchell were amongst the best players last week. These boys play key roles for the team and will be the ones to look out for as they will again be given large tasks as they are crucial figures of the team.
Along with the young brigade, Veteran Will Dau has been solid in defence over the duration of this season so far with his strength, ability and knowledge of the game and will also be given yet another big job down back.
Into the side will come big man, Kallum Paul and hard man, Jack Weller.
Returning from injury is Sam Mawer and Chris McDonald.
Please be advised that parking will not be available on the eastern side of the ground due to COVID-19 testing. Please park on the western side of the ground!
