ROCHESTER V UNITED
This should be a fantastic game of football between two teams which are both wanting to figure in the September action.
Some would say that the Tigers are a little unlucky to not have a better win/loss ratio given some admirable losses against the 2019 grand finalists.
The Demons have been very strong down back this season. In fact, I would go as far as saying that has probably been their strength. Tip: Rochester.
SHEPPARTON V TATURA
Shepparton will go into this game full of confidence after putting up a gallant effort against the undefeated Seymour last weekend.
The Bulldogs have been competitive in every game they have played this season. Tip: Shepparton.
BENALLA V SEYMOUR
Benalla will be looking to rebound after a disappointing second half against the reigning premier last weekend while Ben Davey’s men will be out to avoid complacency which almost cost them at Deakin Reserve last weekend.
There is no doubt the Lions would have learnt plenty from last weekend. Tip: Seymour.
KYABRAM V MANSFIELD
Kyabram returned to the winners’ circle in emphatic fashion last weekend.
After a sluggish first half, the Bombers showed Benalla who was boss in the second half where it ran away with a strong win.
I think the reigning premier will be too strong for the visiting Eagles. Tip: Kyabram.
MOOROOPNA V EUROA
Mooroopna is still a work in progress as it looks to find some consistency to make a genuine assault on the top six.
The Cats have shown glimpses of what they are capable of, but on other occasions they have been a little flat.
I think the Pies will win this game to consolidate their ladder position. Tip: Euroa.
SWANS V ECHUCA
Echuca is really building into this season.
For mine, the Murray Bombers remain the team to beat despite their opening day loss to Seymour. Tip: Echuca.
