Sharks To Host Lions At Dunsborough On Sunday

The Dunsborough Sharks return to Dunsborough Playing Fields on Sunday to play Harvey Brunswick Leschenault in a match both teams believe they will be able to win.

Dunsborough who sit eighth on the ladder, narrowly missed out on their second victory when they lost to Carey Park by six points at Kelly Park last Sunday, while the Lions are fresh off their maiden win of the season, causing a massive upset in defeating Augusta Margaret River at Gloucester Park.

Dunsborough will be keen to replicate their winning performance against Collie in round five, where the Sharks kicked eighteen goals.  The teams key forwards have been playing well, with Nic Reid with 15 goals (pictured), Chris White (13) and Cameron Dean (11) all having great starts to the season, with Dean kicking five goals in last weeks loss.

As mentioned in previous weeks, the Lions rely heavily on Jarrod Humprhies, who amazingly has still kicked 50% of the Lions total goals for the season, off the back of seven goals against the Hawks last Saturday.   If the Sharks are able to stop the ball getting to Humphries they will go along way to winning the match.

Aside from Humphries, Jack Fletcher, Seann Arrowsmith and Blake Offer have been in good form for the Lions, along with youngster, Ned Gualter who is playing good football as well, in what should be an intriguing contest.
