Round 13 Match Preview: Rochester V United


Rochester will look to get back on the winners’ list when it plays host to the lowly Shepparton United.

The Demons are set to be missing up to four soldiers from last week’s team that lost by 100 points to arch rival Shepparton.

On the other hand, Rochester welcomes back two of its best players in Nathan Marrone and Steven Stroobants.

Both should complement the likes of Jarod Bacon, Dillon Williams, Mitchell Bright, Jaycob Dingwall, Nicholas O'Connor and John Harvey who were the team’s key contributors in the loss to Seymour last weekend.

United will look to Shane Neaves, Reid Crowe, Jye Chalcraft, Liam Fiore and Cameron Calder to steer the ship while the club is hoping to regain some of its more experienced players to take on the Tigers.

Tip: Rochester.


Shepparton United is in danger of dropping out of the top six if it can’t turnaround its recent run of losses.

After starting the season with five wins in a row, the Demons have only won two of their past seven games.

The Dees will look to Kara Dawes, Jess Barnes-Hill, Sarah Bohn and Bree Hanslow to dominate the Tigers who are out of finals contention.

A win here could give the team the impetus to make a charge towards the top end of the ladder given it has a favourable draw over the next month before finishing off with games against Mooroopna and Kyabram.

Tip: United.
