The top five is beginning to take shape in the AGL Loy Yang NGFNL.
Sale City remains undefeated at the top of the ladder with five wins, while Rosedale and Woodside are on four wins each.
This week’s games see four of the top five teams playing against one another.
Sale City take on Woodside, while Rosedale meets fifth-placed Churchill, so the top five may look very different at the end of this round.
This week will also be a good indication of where the top teams really are at this point in the season.
Churchill v. Rosedale
Second-placed Rosedale will be looking to bounce back after a shock upset to last-placed Gormandale last week.
Fifth-placed Churchill with the home ground advantage will be no easy-beats either.
It’s difficult to pick a winner.
Rosedale by six points
Sale City v. Woodside
Ladder leader Sale City is good this year, but expect third-placed Woodside to take them right to the wire.
Woodside is definitely an improving club.
Both teams still need to prove themselves against quality opposition and this week’s draw gives them an opportunity to do that.
Sale City by six points.
Glengarry v. Heyfield
Heyfield has played all top five teams this year except Woodside.
If the Kangaroos want to play finals, they need to pull their socks up, because two wins from five rounds is nowhere near where last year’s runner-up needs to be.
Glengarry is re-building and will be hungry to defeat anyone, especially a struggling club.
An upset is possible.
Heyfield by 12 points.
TTU v. Yarram
TTU has looked soft over the past few weeks and it doesn’t get any easier as it faces in-form, fourth-placed Yarram.
The home ground advantage won’t be enough for the Bombers who are coming off two losses.
Yarram has won the last three from three and will be hard to beat this week as well.
Yarram by 36 points.
Gormandale v. Cowwarr
Gormandale will take a lot of confidence from last week’s upset win against second-placed reigning premiers Rosedale.
The Tigers have been showing signs and last week the hoodoo was lifted.
Cowwarr on the other hand face an uphill battle after another loss last week.
Expect a close game.
Gormandale by 12 points.
In AGL Loy Yang NGFNL netball, fourth-placed Churchill hosts undefeated, second-placed Rosedale in the match of the round.
Undefeated first-placed Woodside plays fifth-placed Sale City in what should be another enthralling contest.
Third-placed Glengarry will be looking to bounce back after last week’s loss when it takes on sixth-placed Heyfield and the bottom four teams have a great opportunity to put some much needed premiership points in the bank, with TTU hosting Yarram and Gormandale taking on Cowwarr.
