Tigers Looking To Break Losing Streak

South Bunbury will be looking to break a two game losing streak, when they travel to Harvey on Sunday to play the Harvey Bulls at the Harvey Oval.

The Bulls won’t make it easy for the Tigers, and despite losing to Busselton last week, are near full strength for the clash with South Bunbury who are fourth on the ladder with a tough run home leading into finals.

The Bulls midfield have started to find some form in recent weeks are a spate of injuries, with Lloyd Beever, Andrew Haydon and Sam Lewis all getting plenty of possessions, and along with Matthew and Harley Bennell and Brad Holmes have the firepower to trouble the Tigers.

South Bunbury will be fully rested after the bye and their own midfield will be looking forward to the challenge, with Shaun Crane having another stellar season along with Captain Kevin Chitty.

Leigh Kohlmann who has been all the talking in recent times about potentially being the first player to kick 100 goals since Kim Eades in 2001, has been quiet in recent weeks and requires 21 more goals in the final four weeks of the season.  Kohlmann is a key to the Tigers attack and if kept quiet, South Bunbury will need to find alternate avenues to goal, with Ethan Nordahl the next highest goal scorer with just eleven goals.

Although the Bulls can no longer make the finals, they can certainly shape who finishes where, with matches also to come against Carey Park and Bunbury.  The Tigers wouldn’t want to lose on Sunday, as they could potentially drop to fifth, with matches against Donnybrook and Bunbury still to come, with the Bunbury derby possibly to determine who gets a home final.
