Dunsborough Back At Home

The Dunsborough Sharks return to the Dunsborough Playing Fields on Sunday to take on Carey Park, in round seventeen of the Dale Alcock Homes SW Premiership Season.

Dunsborough suffered a nineteen point loss last Sunday at the hands of the Collie Eagles, after taking it right up to South Bunbury the week before.  The team which have been ravaged by injury and then illness, will see a few key players return for the contest against the Panthers who sit fourth on the ladder, but could find themselves second subject to other results by the end of the round.

Carey Park have been the surprise packet of 2023, and there are no questions of their capabilities after they dismantled South Bunbury in the first quarter of their clash last Sunday, enough to see the Panthers win the contest.

Harley Sparks, Jaxon Bell and Kelvin Lawrence have been excellent contributors to the teams success and along with Ryan King up forward, the Panthers will be tough to beat on Sunday, despite the fact the Sharks only lost to Carey Park by six points in the corresponding fixture earlier in the year.

A Panthers victory, and a Harvey Bulls win over Donnybrook, and a Busselton victory over South Bunbury would see Carey Park jump to second place, at worst they would remain in a three way battle, as they along with the Dons and Tigers all have eleven wins going into the round.  That should be enough incentive for the Panthers to get the points and keep the pressure on the fight for second place.
