Can Bulls Take Down Hawks In Harvey

In a mouth-watering clash at Harvey Oval on Sunday, Harvey Bulls will take on second placed Augusta Margaret River in promises to be a great match.

Harvey Bulls are coming off consecutive wins against Donnybrook and Harvey Brunswick, will face Augusta Margaret River who will be fresh off the bye, something that has helped some teams and hindered others.

In recent weeks Harvey have shown a real potency up forward with Brad Holmes and Michael Bennell kicking 24 goals between them in the past three weeks and when you add in Tyson Powell who has kicked six in the last two weeks, the Bulls have some significant fire power for the Hawks to have to contend with.  Apart from kicking the goals, it has been the way Harvey have kicked them, with the ability to kick multiple goals in quick succession, which has put immense pressure on the back lines of opposition teams.

Not to be outdone, the Hawks have the second highest amount of points kicked, and second least amount kicked against, highlighting their many avenues to goal, and stingy defence.   Tim Noakes is the Hawks highest goal scorer with 28 opposed to Holmes 53, but the Hawks have many players including Harry Taylor, Mitch Gerrans and Matthew Bannister who can all kick multiple goals in a game.

If the Hawks get the win, they will keep their chance alive of taking top spot at the end of the Home and Away season, while if Harvey Bulls win, they will potentially stay ahead of Donnybrook who play South Bunbury on Saturday evening.

Although not quite an Elimination Final for the Bulls, it is a game they would desperately love to win and would go a long way towards booking a finals berth.
