Lions And Bulls To Play For Strano Cup

The inaugural Strano Cup will be played on Saturday afternoon at the Brunswick Showgrounds, when Harvey Brunswick Leschenault hosts Harvey Bulls with the commencement of the second round of the SWFL.

The Lions sit in eighth place on the ladder after the end of the first half of the season with three wins, while the Bulls sit in seventh place, with the Bulls having one four games.

The Lions have lost their last two games to South Bunbury by 29 points and Busselton by nine points, while the Bulls have also lost their last two matches, to Bunbury by 30 points and Carey Park by 24 points, making Saturday’s clash crucial for both teams.

Jack Fletcher has been in really good form for the Lions and will need to be watched closely by the Bulls midfield, while Jarrod Humphries (pictured below) despite a quiet match last weekend, has consistently kicked the majority of the teams goals in 2023.

Meanwhile the Bulls kept pace with Bunbury for a half in round eleven, with Brad Holmes kicking four goals, making the forward battle between Humphries and Holmes, one worth watching.  Kyle Humphries and Dylan Marino have been in good form for the Bulls who have been hit with injuries and will be hoping to start the second round with a win.

If the Bulls were to win, and the Hawks and Panthers were to lose to Busselton and Bunbury respectively, Harvey will be within one game of the top five, while a loss will see them drop below Harvey Brunswick Leschenault on the ladder due to the Lions having a better percentage.
