Harvey Bulls Need To Bounce Back

Harvey Bulls will be desperate to get the four points on Saturday afternoon, when they play Bunbury at the Harvey Oval in Round Eleven of the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL Premiership season.

The Bulls, who have been ravaged with injury, took it right up to Carey Park last Saturday evening, but ultimately came up short.  Meanwhile Bunbury got the points against South Bunbury last Sunday afternoon, in some of the worst conditions seen in many years, with the match called off due to persistent lightning near Hands Oval at Half Time.

Harvey Bulls sit in seventh place with four wins, while Bunbury sit in fifth place with five wins and a draw, with a Bulldogs victory seeing the Bulls 10 points away from fifth place.  Should the Bulls take the points, they will be just two points outside the five at the half way mark of the competition.

Bunbury were highly impressive against the Tigers on Sunday, kicking five goals in the opening term, a lead which was impossible to mow down in the monsoonal rain that fell in the second quarter.  Despite the conditions Matt Martin still managed two goals and is now just 14 goals short of 600 goals in the SWFL.    At the opposite end, Brad Holmes, who kicked his 1000th career goal at the Bulls last home game, has kicked ten goals in the last three weeks.

Andrew Haydon will be another key player for the Bulls on Saturday, and has been in good form this season.  The Bulldogs had plenty of winners in the shortened match last Sunday with Denholm King, Dylan Heasman and Jesse Gribble all getting plenty of the ball in the conditions and will be just some of the Bunbury players the Bulls will need to be wary about.
