Round 13 Match Preview: Mansfield V Seymour
Seymour put a tough week off the field behind them to respond with an emphatic win over Rochester last weekend.
It was an important four points to claim and this is another big game for the Lions as they look to shore up their place in the top six.
Hugh Robertson has made a strong return to the line-up and been a key contributor during the past fortnight, while Dylan Scopel, Jordan Hockley, Brandyn Grenfell, Andrew Sturgess and Brent Ryan all stood tall against the Tigers.
Mansfield will look to take all the momentum in from last week’s win into today’s contest against the Lions.
Thomas German, Luke Walsh, Thomas Gardiner, Christopher Gallagher, Adam Boshevski, Jayden Howes and Brett Mahoney will all need to continue their rich vein of form to cause an upset today.
Seymour will be shooting for a second straight win when it makes the trip to the High Country to take on the bottom of the ladder Mansfield.
The Lions were outstanding last weekend against Rochester and coach Laura Carland will be hoping her girls can dish up much of the same today.
Ellie O’Sullivan has been one of the experienced players leading by example and she will again be important.
The Eagles were outplayed by Tatura last weekend and it will be looking to play more consistently over the four quarters to be a chance of victory.
