SEYMOUR V ROCHESTER
The Lion scored arguably one of its best wins for a long time when it did a number of the highly fancied Echuca.
What coach Ben Davey will enjoy is teams writing them off as a genuine contender to, at the very least, play finals in 2021.
Rochester will still be filthy after going within minutes of inflicting defeat on the reigning premier.
BENALLA V ECHUCA
Echuca co-coaches Simon Maddox and the returning Andrew Walker will be expecting a response from the group today after a disappointing loss last weekend.
It isn’t going to be any easier against a Saints team full of confidence after a first win and kicking 150 points.
MOOROOPNA V SHEPPARTON
This is a big game for both of these teams.
Both first round losers and looking to avoid a 0-2 start to 2021.
Hamish Rowlands, Anthony Andronaco, Mitchell Brett, Bryce Stephenson, Connor Fleming and Jacob Watts were some of the shining lights in the first up loss to United.
UNITED V EUROA
United and Euroa will be looking to make it two from two to start 2021.
Both teams were impressive enough in their round one victories.
But both coaches would agree that there is plenty of room for improvement.
TATURA V MANSFIELD
This is a massive game for Tatura.
The Bulldogs won’t want to go 0-2.
Coach Paul Kirby knows his boys will need to put their head over the ball today because the visiting Eagles won’t take a backwards step.
KYABRAM V SWANS
Kyabram survived a scare last weekend and I fear that the Shepparton Swans could feel the brunt of the home team.
Co-coaches Mick Mattingly and Brad Edwards will be expecting a greater output from some of the guys who were a little quiet last weekend while the Swans will be desperate to be competitive for the four quarters.
Andrew Riordan, Zac Clohesy, Quade Johnstone, Michael Cooke, Zac Alderton and Bryden Squire will be important players to ensure the Swans are competitive today.
