Great Flinders Football League
& Great Flinders Netball Association

Great Flinders Round 8 Preview

The first of the split rounds are here with only two matches being played this weekend in Great Flinders.

Who's in and who's out this weekend? Find out below.

Eyre United vs Lock

Eyre United

Ins – Kye Butler, Riley Bell, Winston Telfer Outs – Will Turner, Matthew Keen, Brett Doley


Ins – Levi Brown, Cain Reynolds, Casey Beard, Andrew Heath, Ryan Durdin, Liam Rix Outs – Callum Rees, Tim Boehm, Justin Beard, Ty Habner, Thomas Kammermann, Fletcher Kammermann,

Both sides are coming off disappointing losses last weekend and will be looking forward to the bye and rest up a few players that are carrying injuries.

Eyre United were competitive against Ramblers during the first half last weekend but were completely blown out of the water in the second half against the talented young Magpies side.

Lock was once again extremely undermanned, having 10 of their starting 21 from Round 1 missing and were simply outclassed all over the ground by the mighty Eagles juggernaut.

The Roos will welcome back a few this weekend before two weeks off.

Levi Brown, Casey Beard and Cain Reynolds will provide the side with plenty of run in each third of the ground whilst Andrew Heath and Ryan Durdin will add extra depth in defence.

The Saints will miss their young star Will Turner who has been playing outstanding and consistent football throughout the season.

Liam Rix will play his first game for Lock on the weekend. A tough in-and-under midfielder who previously played for Waybacks in the Port Lincoln Football League.

Winston Telfer made his A Grade debut last weekend for the Saints and will line up again this weekend, a great effort at such a young age.

With Lock’s inclusions this week they should have too much depth over the entirety of the ground this weekend against a plucky Saints side.

Cummins Kapinnie vs Tumby Bay

Cummins Kapinnie

Ins – Not Provided Outs – Not Provided

Tumby Bay

Ins – Jagga Cross, Swayne Ackland, Matthew Hartwig Outs – Reece Gerrie, Tyson Whitelaw, Connor Newton

It’s been a tough few weeks for Cougars and things don’t get any easier this week up against an in-form Tumby Bay side fresh off a bye.

The Blues last hit-out was super impressive against a previously unbeaten Lock side, keeping the Roos to a solitary goal. Latrelle Sumner and Joe Walker were once again impressive for the home side, supported by the McDonald twins and Nigel James.

Cougars made the long trip up to Poochera last weekend and were blown away by a Dane Swan inspired Roosters. Henry Turnbull continued his good form this year, supported by Adam, Jay and Jack Green.

The Blues are extremely well drilled behind the ball and will be focussed on another even 4 quarter effort as they look to cement a spot in the top 2.

Latrelle Sumner has added blistering leg speed to an already impressive Tumby Bay midfield whilst Joe Walker has dominated in his typical intercept role across half-back.

Thomas Phelps has led his side from the front all season, but lack of numbers has meant that 3 or more players are required to play 2 games each week, with blowouts happening in the last half of games when players get fatigued.

Tumby Bay should win this game comfortably, however look for Cummins Kapinnie to burst out the blocks early similar to how they did against United Yeelanna.
