Round 13 Match Preview: Mooroopna V Tatura


Mooroopna will see this is as a big opportunity to inflict more pain on Tatura.

The Cats have been pretty competitive of late while the Dogs are in a slump, having lost 10 in a row.

Last weekend was another game that the Bulldogs probably should won only to be overrun by Mansfield.

Jack Lear, Dean Smith, Clint Riley, Trent Freer, Matthew Deane and Trent Herbert will be some of the key players coach Dale Osborne will look to shine against the Bulldogs.

Andrew Ciavarella, Paul Kirby, Liam Borrelli, Zavier Ballis, James Sullivan and James Nihill all played well in the loss while Chris Ryan returns to the line-up after playing for Victoria Country last weekend.

This will be a game that is decided by who can play the entire 100 minutes as neither team has been able to do that regularly this year.

Tip: Mooroopna.


The equation is simple for Mooroopna – win and you could leap back into the top six if results fall in its favour today.

Mooroopna started the season in a blaze of glory with four wins in a row. However it has only won two of its past eight matches.

There is no doubt the Cats have the talent.

It is a case of Jenni McCluskey getting the girls to believe in themselves.

Tatura comes into this contest off the back of a big win.

The Bulldogs are much better than their three-and-a-half wins.

If the Cats are slightly off their game then the Bulldogs will catch them out.

Tip: Mooroopna.
