In-form Tumby side will not be enough to knock off Eagles

Great Flinders football preview

LOCAL footy is back this weekend after a successful Mortlock campaign for Great Finders.

Cougars will look to cement their spot in the top four when they take on a struggling Eyre United at Cummins Oval.

Julian Doudle will be keen to get some consistencey into his group which has been missing at times this season.

Hazelgrove, Jack Green, Craggs-Sappford and Konitzka have been in solid form, and with Paech now injury free, Cougars will be looking to build their year heading toward finals.

This will be another tough one for the Saints who have struggled to be competitive but had some positive moments through Forrest, Lachie Gale and the Telfer boys who continue to battle against the odds.

Tough to make a case for them. This is a game Cougars will win comfortably.

In the second game Ramblers travel to Lock with an opportunity for them to slip a game clear in second spot.

Their form has been pretty solid all year and the likely inclusion of Shirley, Mickan and George Pedler will be a solid boost to their side.

Youngsters Forster and Richardson have been good, and the Haarsma boys are rarely out of the best players.

Lock have been competitive in most games and will need to be at their best to trouble the experienced Magpies.

Levi and Billy Brown have been excellent for their side all year, Glover is a talented youngster and Morton and Heath give them some strength around the contest.

Lock enjoy playing on their home deck but Ramblers look to have just too much class across the ground and will win by four to five goals.

In this week's match of the round, ladder leaders United Yeelanna travel to Tumby Bay to take on an in-form Tumby side who have won their last four games.

Their better players have been up and about in recent weeks with Walker, Hind, Lawrie, Franklin and Murphy all in excellent form, while the inclusion of Hartwig adds value to their forward line alongside Rees.

The Eagles have been unstoppable and it will take a good side to beat them.

They have class across every line with Watson, Carr, Martin and the Crettenden boys all solid, Norton controlling their back half, and up forward Havelberg and Howie form the league's most dangerous forward line.

The Blues will need to be at their very best to challenge the premiership favourites. Their form is good but the Eagles form is untouchable at the minute.

It should be a high standard game but Yeelanna will continue their unbeaten run.
