SFL Reserves grand final preview
Kingborough v New Norfolk
By Gary Williamson
KINGBOROUGH will attempt to defend last year’s reserves premiership when they take on New Norfolk who have really improved and played their best football during the finals. Kingborough went straight through and have the advantage of the bye after thrashing Lindisfarne in the second semi-final and they will go in short priced favourites, especially as their seniors lost last week and they may gain some valuable additions to their side.
The Eagles reserves were surprise winners last week with very accurate kicking and whilst they will be confident they know they will need a real team effort if the yare to take the cup. You would expect the Eagles to be competitive for most of the game but the class and ability of the tigers should see them pull away in the second half and take another flag home.
COLTS GRAND FINAL
Sorell v Brighton
IN a replay of the second semi-final Sorell who won that game by only a point again take on Brighton in which promises to be another exciting close game as both sides are very evenly matched. Sorell will be rested after a week off but this may count against them as they have had no real hard contested footy and may lack match practice. The Robins thrashed Huonville last weekend in the preliminary final and will be itching to have another crack at their arch rival. Sorell have clearly been the best side all year and the scare of the second final should of really woke them up and they should be too strong in the second half and earn a well deserved flag for their district.
