Tigers head down town ready to turn tables on cross-city rivals

North Gambier will head to Blue Lake Sports Park to take on the Dees, hoping to reverse the result of their first meeting.

Back in round 2 the Dees got the job done against the Tigers on Anzac Day, as South started slow in that game and came alive in the second half to beat the Tigers by 22 points.

Since that game both sides have only dropped one game.

Both sides are coming off big wins with North heading into this game with a lot of confidence after their win over West.

South’s midfield of Mitchell Harrold and Mitchell Sims has been electric over the past few weeks and they will need to be competing hard against this strong and physical North side.

This season North has done well sharing the footy, spreading the scoring across their goal scorers in most games which makes it hard for sides to plan against.

Casterton Sandford v East Gambier

The Doggies will travel across the border this week to take on the Cats.

Last time these sides played it was a competitive match up with Casterton coming away with the win by 14 points.

In that game both sides had their ups and downs with a couple of quarters more high scoring than the others.

This has been an issue for both these sides as they have struggled to play consistently for all four quarters.

As East continues to search for this first win they are going to have to play hard for the whole game and with Casterton only having one more win than the Doggies this is the perfect game for East to get their season going.

West Gambier v Millicent

The Saints will head to Malseed Park on Saturday to face the Roos, with West set to be out for revenge after their last game against the Saints.

In round 2 Millicent pumped the Roos by 42 points.

West are coming off a tough loss to North so heading into this game they will be hungry to get back on the winners list.

Millicent had a competitive game against Casterton last week where the Cats seemed to just hang in for most of the game.

The Saints cannot afford to cruise through this game as West will be a much tougher opponent.

Millicent’s Sam Willis has been an outstanding player for the Saints this season with his ability to dominate the contest all over the field and he is a player who loves to play physical and get the contested possession.

He is sure to be a key player for Millicent in this game.

For West, Brandon Newton will be a big player for the Roos in this match up.

Newton has been great for the Roos
 so far this season with his ability to play
 at any position.

Newton has also shown that he can be a scoring threat with two goals last week.

Newton is also deadly in the air with his great athleticism to jump and take some great marks this season.
