2017 VFL RFC v Willie
#1
Seagulls v Tigers


Sunday 21 May @ Burbank Oval


If this was Nature World, I would expect this to be the equivalent of a draw. A few bloodied and mangled seagulls littering the floor, while the Tiger moves on in disgust at the constant scattering and wheeling of the remaining birds calling "Mine", who won't face the challenge.


It will be a tough game. RFC need this win to stay in the 8, and break the L3 streak. Willie, who are 3 & 2, want to assert their right to play finals again this year.


Will be nice to see Adam Marcon on the ground, even if it is in the wrong colours. He's been having a bit of a purple patch, but I'm hoping the divided loyalties put his game off a little.


Willies form to date has not set the world on fire, having played Casey for a 23 point win (Casey are not traveling well this year), a 30 point loss to Northern Blues, a 28 point loss as to BoHiDawks, an 88 point drubbing of the Lions, followed by a 91 point shellacking of the other 2017 whipping boys, Northern Ballarat.


Our boys on the other hand, have played 4 of the top 8, with 1 win, two narrow losses and a poor showing against the Borough.


Key to the game will be Centre clearances and stoppage work. The Gull's ruck Nick Meese has been the dominant ruck of the VFL, so Ivan(s) will need to intimidate, while Ballard, Towner, Miles and Lloyd, will need to dominate the clearances.


Willie are also miserly in defence, so the nippy forwards will need to crumb at Chol's, Marci's and Soldo's feet when we make our 50 entries


Expecting a good game with a Tigers win

And at half time - RFC 5:6 to 11:6

Wood playing well

Ivan halving the ruck, but we are losing centre and stoppage clearances.

Willie are playing the wind much better.

Willie with the first. And a free kick for a push after the kick, gives them a bonus goal.

Like they needed it...
