Tigers And Bulls Both Need The Four Points

Round eight of the South West Football League, commences with a crucial clash between South Bunbury and Harvey Bulls, with both teams desperate for the four points to stay in touch with the teams above them on the ladder.

South Bunbury dropped to fourth after their loss to Busselton last Saturday night, while Harvey Bulls have dropped to seventh place after being beaten by Donnybrook.

The Tigers have a good percentage, however they are a game behind Carey Park and Donnybrook, while the Bulls percentage dropped below 100 after their loss in the Hickman Cup.

The two teams do match up well against each other and have some potent scoring ability, with Leigh Kohlmann leading the goal kicking with 28 goals from six games, including three goals in their last match against Busselton.   Souths strength is also their weakness, as Kohlmann is kicking the majority of the teams goals, and if he is shut down, the scoring invariably can dry up.

Brad Holmes and Jacob Pickett at the other end have also been relatively quiet by their standards, as the team has suffered with plenty of injuries.  Andrew Haydon returned last week for the Bulls which certainly assisted their centre line, which is also one of the key strengths of the Tigers, led by captain Kevin Chitty and dynamo Shaun Crane.

With fine weather forecast, the match promises to provide plenty of skills on the wide open spaces of Hands Oval.
