Great Flinders Football League
& Great Flinders Netball Association

Great Flinders Round 10 Preview

This week is the last of the split rounds (where every team has a home game, away game & bye over 3 weeks) and winter has well and truly arrived on the Eyre Peninsula.

Join us as we preview all of this week’s games below:





United Yeelanna vs Eyre United


United Yeelanna

Ins – Casey Carr Outs – Michael Crettenden


Eyre United

Ins – Not Provided Outs – Not Provided


The Eagles proved once again last weekend why they are the rightful premiership favourites, dismantling a young Tumby Bay side last weekend that was missing a few of their keys.


Eyre United would have welcomed the bye with open arms last weekend with injury hitting them hard before Mortlock shield.


This weekend, the Eagles will welcome back one of their favourite sons in Casey Carr as he returns from a serious ACL injury.


Despite winning comfortably in recent times, the Eagles have had an impressive spread of goalkickers, something which will hold them in good stead come finals time.


The Saints have struggled to kick a winning score in the absence of key forward Max Baldissera and will need their midfielders to drift forward if they are any chance to trouble the Eagles.


United Yeelanna simply look to have far too much depth for the Saints and should win comfortably.



Lock vs Elliston Districts


Lock

Ins – Kory Beard, Damian Kelly, Blaze Kay, Outs – Fergus Slape, Daley Beard, Andrew Heath


Elliston Districts

Ins – Damon King, Jacob Newton, Patrick Winter Outs – Matthew Williams, Sam Keane, Charlie Gibson


It was deja-vu for Elliston Districts again last week as Ramblers once again run over the top of them in the final quarter at home. The home side burst out of the blocks early to keep the Magpies scoreless but were disappointing after.


The byes came at the perfect time for the Roos to rest up several injured players as they look to launch for a top-2 spot on the run home.


Hometown-boy Jacob Newton will be a welcome addition to the Roosters side, a talented junior who undoubtably will have higher football honours ahead of him in his near future.


Kory Beard and Damian Kelly will add plenty of height to the Lock defence whilst Blaze Kay will provide plenty of grunt through the midfield.


Ziek Kay has been outstanding for Lock this season, with his ability to play either end of the ground a highlight.


The weather should bring this game closer than expected but Lock should have too much firepower across the ground for Elliston Districts.



Cummins Ramblers vs Cummins Kapinnie


Ramblers

Ins – Cody Modra Outs – Henry Treloar


Cummins Kapinnie

Ins – Connor Gale Outs – Sam Ness, Chris Wright


Ramblers once again run over the top of Elliston Districts last weekend to cement their place in the top 4. Jimmy Richo was back to his best for the Magpies, finishing with 5 goals in tough conditions.


Cougars will be looking to get their first win of the season against their cross-town rivals in what has been a disappointing year so far.


Blair Buchanan has been consistent all year for the Magpies, with his superb ball skills on full display last weekend in less than ideal conditions.


Thomas Phelps continues to lead his young side from the front and will be integral in Cougars getting a win in the latter half of the season.


A win is right around the corner for the Cougars side, however I doubt it will be this week. Magpies to win in a scrappy game.
