Tigers Looking To Consolidate

South Bunbury will be looking to consolidate third place on the ladder when they play host to Collie Eagles on Sunday afternoon at Hands Oval, in round twelve of the SWFL.

The last time they met in round one, the Tigers took a strangle hold of the match early, before the Eagles matched it with the Tigers in the second half.  Since that time, the Eagles have struggled with just the one victory, while South Bunbury have only suffered losses to Augusta Margaret River, Busselton and more recently Bunbury.

South Bunbury will be looking for a strong showing at home for their inspirational captain, Kevin Chitty who will play his 50th League game for the club on Sunday.  Chitty has featured regularly as one of the best players all season for the Tigers, and his physicality and endurance are two of the attributes that make him one of the premier players in the competition.   He is joined in the midfield by Shaun Crane who rarely plays a bad game, and along with Ethan Nordahl, will give the Collie Eaglies midfield plenty of headaches.

Despite being on the bottom of the ladder, the Eagles have been competitive in all of their matches, but will need a four quarter effort to keep close to the Tigers.  Against Donnybrook two weeks ago, the Eagles had as many scoring shots as the Dons but their inaccuracy cost them in the end.   Teale DeAngelis, Cameron Davidson and Adam Bignell have been playing well for the Eagles, and will need big games on the wide open expanses of Hands Oval.
