The Rovers Football and Netball teams are looking to build on their Round 1 successes by defeating Blighty on their home turf this Saturday.
Blighty’s A Grade Netball team defeated Mathoura last week in Mathoura and hope that they can stay undefeated by defeating the Rovers on home soil, the Rovers after defeating Yarroweyah are hoping to show they can remain undefeated as well as showing they can win on the road as well as at home.
The Rovers and Blighty had a memorable clash last season where Blighty established an 8 goal lead before the Rovers stormed back to win by the narrowest of margins, it is hoped that this game will not present the same challenge and be a smoother path to victory.
B Grade, C Grade, C Grade Reserves, Under 17’s and Under 13’s all hope to continue their unbeaten run as well whilst the Under 15’s will be aiming to get points on the board after their ten goal loss to Yarroweyah last week.
In Football, the Rovers Seniors are top of the ladder and aim to keep ahead of Blighty by defeating them when the two sides clash on Saturday.
Blighty defeated Mathoura last week and will look to defeating the Rovers to stay undefeated this season whilst the Rovers aim to do the exact same thing at Blighty’s expense.
The Rovers Seniors had ten players scoring at least a goal with three kicking multiple goals in their win against Yarroweyah and the Rovers no doubt hope for a similar result against Blighty.
Blighty had seven goal kickers in their match against Mathoura with five kicking multiple goals but may be hampered by the fact they had less avenues of scoring than the Rovers.
The Rovers Football teams are on top of the ladder in the Seniors, Reserves and Under 17’s and sit third in the Under 14’s.
DNS will report on all the results in the next edition of Rovers Talk.
