Busselton And Dons To Face Wet Weather Football

The first day of Winter will deliver the wettest conditions of the season, not only for football, but in the last seven months, when Busselton and Donnybrook face off in a crucial clash on Saturday evening at Sir Stewart Bovell Park.

Heavy showers with as much as ten millimeters of rain forecast during the League match, along with strong winds, will put scoring shots at a premium, in a match both teams desperately need to win.

Busselton prior to being beaten by South Bunbury, were playing some good football and appeared to be in good form, but sit seventh on the ladder with two wins, while Donnybrook are third on the ladder with four wins, winning last week in dominant fashion over Harvey Bulls.

A Busselton victory will keep the Magpies in touch with the top five, while a loss will see them entrenched in the bottom five, potentially two game behind the fifth placed team.  Meanwhile, the Dons can move to second place on the ladder at the expense of Harvey Brunswick Leschenault who have the bye, and maybe only one game behind South Bunbury, should they lose to Bunbury in the Derby.

Both teams have dominant forward lines, but the conditions may not suit either of them, and it will be the small men who may make all the difference.

The wet weather will certainly play a part and it will be the team that adapts the best, not only to the rain, but wind, will come out on top.
