Weekend footy preview

Southern Football League
Round 3 Preview

ROUND 3 of the 2013 SFL season sees Brighton host its third home game in a row while ladder leader East Coast Bombers will be welcomed home to Triabunna to host their first home game of the season. New Norfolk will have its first roster match at Boyer Oval since winning the 2012 senior and reserves premierships.

Patrons are getting great value for money watching a very even and balanced competition so far this season. It makes all football club members and supporters keen for Saturday to come around.

New Norfolk v Sorell at Boyer Oval at 2pm Saturday

Sorell will front up at the SFL “House of Pain” at Boyer Oval this weekend after dropping their first two games against Cygnet and East Coast Bombers and the supporters will expect a much improved performance.

The task gets no easier against reigning premier New Norfolk. Coach Jon Murray has the Derwent Valley boys back in the winner’s column against Brighton after a first-round loss.

Keep an eye on Nathan Ross who bagged five against the Robins to take his season tally to nine after two rounds and watch out for 2012 leading goal kicker and William Leitch medalist Michael Thompson who will be hungry for a big haul after not taking his place in the side last week.

It’s expected that the Eagles will be too strong and will register their second win for the season.
