Tigers Head To Shark Park On Sunday

The Dunsborough Sharks will host South Bunbury on Sunday afternoon at the Dunsborough Playing Fields, as part of round fifteen of the SWFL.

South Bunbury will be looking to take the four points and in doing so, may move into second place, if Busselton beat Donnybrook on Saturday.

When the two teams last met in round four, the Sharks were still looking for their first win, going down to the Tigers by 39 points at Hand Oval.  Since then the Tigers have his top gear with just one loss since round eight at the hands of Bunbury, while the Sharks have been very hard hit by injury, testing the new teams depth, but with a bye for the Nutrien Ag Championships, it has given them an opportunity to freshen up and get a few players back.

In the round four clash, Leigh Kohlmann kicked eight goals, but in the last three matches Kohlmann has risen to prominence kicking 30 goals and is now a very real chance of kicking 100 goals for the season, something that hasn’t been achieved since 2001.  Cutting off the supply to Kohlmann will be the key for the Sharks, if they are to quell Kohlmann’s influence and his marking capabilty.  To cap it off, Kohlmann will be playing his 100th game for the Tigers, who would love to win the match for their key forward.

Dunsborough are coming off their lowest score of their short history when restricted to 2.3 (15) against Busselton in round fourteen, and that will be something the Sharks will be trying to avoid happening on Sunday.
