Do or die for bottom teams
IN A battle of the cellar dwellers, a win is needed to keep either side’s final aspirations alive at Fitzroy Oval.
The Swans have showed glimpses of promise but need their full complement on the pitch to be a chance of manoeuvring their way into the finals. The same can be said for Grafton who would have enjoyed the time off.
The Swans contingent played a prominent part in the North Coast’s win at Armidale. Kris Rundell continued his strong year with a hard-running performance on the wing, Fellow debutantes; Ben Miller, who dominated the hit-outs, Sam Turner and Darby Pearce are among those the home side will rely on going forward.
Grafton were also well represented despite their poor start that sees them sit last on the ladder.
Jarrod Meade and Joel Sword need big games in the centre for the Tigers. They do lack depth at either end and have been exposed against the premier outfits in previous games.
The Swans are perennial finalists and need a big win to get their season back on track.
