Round 12 Match Preview: Tatura V Mansfield
Tatura will be desperate to chalk up a win after nine straight losses.
The Bulldogs task has been made that little bit harder today by the fact some key players will be missing due to injury. Chirs Ryan will also be unavailable as he represents Victoria.
James Wall, Comanche Walls, Matthew Ryan, Thomas Miller, Lincoln Wellington and Andrew Ciavarella will be working overtime to ensure the Dogs can get the four points.
Mansfield has been in really good form of late, winning two of their past three matches and pushing Rochester to the wire in round 10.
Nicholas Gray, Luke Walsh, Benjamin Fagan, Brett Mahoney, Adam Boshevski and Jamie Sheahan have been in good form and if they can continue that then the Eagles can claim the win.
Tatura will be desperate to chalk up another win after some missed opportunities of late while Mansfield know this is a game that is winnable.
The Eagles take some confidence into the contest after defeating Rochester a fortnight ago to chalk up their first win.
Tatura was competitive against Rochester thanks largely due to the efforts of Eamma Ryan and Roey Johnstone.
The Bulldogs should be able to put the score on the board to get the four points.
