THE ramifications for Benalla and Euroa in this week’s match of the round at the Benalla Showgrounds could make or break both clubs fortunes in season 2018. Benalla sits in fourth position and a win keeps a double chance alive for them after their heavy defeat last week to Kyabram. Euroa on the other hand, who sit in fifth position, are not in great form and a loss here could see them drop out of the top six.
Benalla will want to bounce back and will look to their inspirational leader Luke Morgan to lead from the front as normal. Nick Warnock went goalless last week and will want a big bag this week to add to his 46 goals so far this season. Euroa on the other hand got out of jail last week against Mooroopna and need a strong performance here. Evergreen, Craig Bamford kicked three goals last week and is dangerous alongside big man James Chittick and veteran, Michel Varley.
In other games this week, Shepparton United will account for the Shepparton Swans on the river, Echuca at home will challenge Kyabram but the red and blacks superior class will eventually see them home, Shepparton will be too strong for Seymour at Deakin Reserve, Rochester will pip Tatura by one point at Moon Oval and Mansfield will travel to Mooroopna and collect four points.
