Kohlmann Needs Four, Tigers Still Have Job To Do

Leigh Kohlmann is looking to become the first player in over twenty years to kick 100 goals in a season, but the Tigers have a job to do to qualify in third place on the ladder, when they play Harvey Brunswick Leschenault on Saturday afternoon at Hands Oval.

The hype around Kohlmann’s potential milestone is justified but South Bunbury are well aware they need to win big to hold their current third place on the ladder, with the scenario being that they need to defeat the Lions and hope that Donnybrook don’t defeat Augusta Margaret River by more on Sunday.

The calculators will be out in force should the Tigers win, with Kohlmann himself in sensational form, singly handedly turning the Bunbury Derby a week ago, where he kicked nine goals.  The Tigers midfield was also dominant, with Kevin Chitty, Shaun Crane and Ethan Nordahl getting plenty of possessions.

It is unsure who the Lions will play on Kohlmann, but if he is the same form as last week, it may be several players.

The Lions have had a good back end to the season, stringing three wins together on the trot leading into last weeks match against Busselton, who were too strong.  Jack Fletcher and Connor Carbone have had good seasons and will be looking to finish 2023 on a good note, as the Lions play their final league match of the season, which will see them finish either seventh or eighth on the ladder.
