Great Flinders Round 17 Preview

The final minor round game of the season is finally upon us as teams start planning their finals tilt or their end of year presentations.

Join us as we preview all the action for this weekend below

Lock Roos vs United Yeelanna


Ins – Levi Brown, Brayden Crosby, Fergus Slape, Alex Wiseman, Thomas Kammermann, Daley Beard, Outs – Casey Beard, Macauley Glover, Justin Beard, Josh Crosby, Andrew Hetzel, Sam Pearce, Guy Morton

United Yeelanna

Ins – Ben Carr, Stephen Crettenden, Matthew Crettenden, Beau Sampson Outs – Calis Cafuta, Brodie Cash, Raymond Todd

The Roos will host the premiership favourites United Yeelanna in what could be a preview of a finals meeting between the two sides.

United Yeelanna have once again been the dominant force in Great Flinders this season, coming off a 100-point victory over Eyre United at Ungarra, led by Bryce Breed up front who finished with 7 goals.

Lock is coming off the bye and unfortunately still have plenty of injury issues in their side combined with the flu that has hit the town.

With a weekend off during the first week of finals the Eagles will be looking to make a statement with this game.

The midfield battle of George, Kay, and Brown up against Crettenden, Carr and Maxfield will be worth watching.

Bryce Breed had an exceptional grand final on the big Lock oval last year and looks to be hitting some excellent form at the right stage of the season.

With Lock being undermanned and United Yeelanna close to full strength, look for the Eagles to make a statement as they begin their descent to yet other finals series.

Eyre United vs Cummins Ramblers

Eyre United

Ins – Sam Boehm Outs – Matthew Keen


Ins – Billy Pilgrim, Cody Modra Outs – Isaac Hall, Henry Treloar

For one final time in senior football, the Eyre United Saints will take the field, looking to finish with a bang at Ungarra.

The Saints competed well in the second half against the mighty Eagles side last weekend, keeping United Yeelanna to 6 goals whilst kicking 4 of their own after half-time.

Ramblers battled out a scrappy win against Elliston Districts last weekend, largely due to their fast start, kicking 3 goals in the first 4 minutes of the match.

The inclusion of Max Baldissera last weekend was an important one, providing a big body and a forward target for the young side.

Will Haarsma added yet another BOG to his collection this year and will be looking at adding another here up against the young improving Saints midfield.

The Magpies will be looking to enter the finals series next weekend with some momentum and should get over an inspired Saints side.

Cummins Kapinnie vs Elliston Districts


Ins – Yarra Mickan, Connor Gale, Jarrod Howell Outs – Sam Ness, Jesse Brown-Baldock, Jake Mahoney

Elliston Districts

Ins – Cooper Van Doorn, Riley Carter Outs – Oska Richards, Cameron Tomney

Cougars will play their last senior game of football for the season, lining up against the Roosters at Kapinnie.

Elliston Districts battled extremely well last weekend against Ramblers away from home, especially considering up to 9 players were required to play two senior games.

Phelps has led his young side superbly throughout the year and will be a team to watch in the future if they can keep their young core together.

Gregory has wound back the clock up forward for the Roosters this season, looking like he could play for the next 10 years, highlighted by a 100m chase all the way to the wing last weekend.

Cooper Van Doorn has arguably the Roosters most important player this season along with Kody Rosalia and will be a welcome addition back into the engine room up against the Greens from Cougars.

The Roosters will also be playing their final game of A Grade for their season, with their B Grade likely to line-up against Ramblers next weekend in the first semi-final.

Expect a tough battle between the two sides but Elliston look to have too much depth over the ground and should win by a 5-6 goals.
