Rovers Talk (2/6/16)

A Grade has a bye this week, no joke readers they have to put their feet up for the third time in the last four weeks and this exposes the problem A Grade competition has because they’ve got eight teams compared to the rest with nine yet they have the bye in place just like all the other competitions plus another bye for some reason.

So one team gets the round bye like all the other competitions do and another gets a bye because they got nobody to play which can get really confusing to people.

A Grade has had or will have byes on Rounds 7, 9, 11, 16 (all Rovers teams for R16) and 18 which is not ideal for the team because the team has already had a month of stop and starts and will have to wait until Rounds 12 to 16 to get back into a rhythm of consecutive games.

B Grade who is sitting on top of the ladder with a 7-0 record is taking on Berrigan’s B Grade side who is sixth on the ladder with 3-4 record from their seven games this season, Berrigan needs a win to keep up with Tocumwal who have the bye this weekend.

C Grade are sitting on top of the C Grade ladder with a 6-1 record and their opponents are sitting in fourth position with an also impressive 5-2 record, C Grade has a crowded top part of the ladder with three sides just a win off top spot.

C Reserve are sitting second on the C Reserve ladder with a 6-1 record and they’re opponents are sitting fourth with a 4-2-1 record which is not a bad record at this part of the season so this match should be interesting.

Under 17’s are sitting on top of their ladder with a 7-0 record and they take on a Berrigan side that is sitting on the bottom of the ladder with a 0-7 record but don’t count Berrigan out as bottom sides are always desperate and determined to land their first win.

Under 15’s are sitting in sixth spot on the competition ladder and they take on a Berrigan side that are sitting in eighth spot with a  1-6 record, a win will keep the Rovers no further than two games out of the top 5.

Under 13’s are sitting first on their competition ladder with a 7-0 record and they take on a Berrigan side that is sitting seventh with a 2-5 record.


Rovers Seniors are 5-2 and are sitting in third spot on the ladder thanks to their thrilling /nerve racking comeback win last week against Tocumwal at Memorial Park.

Berrigan are sitting in second spot with a 6-1 record making this a great clash, a win to the Rovers will make them level with Berrigan on points and a 7% gain will give them second spot.

Rovers Reserves are 7-0, on top of the ladder and are a win ahead of Picola United whilst Berrigan are sitting in 7th spot with a 2-5 record and desperately seeking a win so the Reserves must be wary of that.

Under 17’s will be in a clash of the seasons titans so far with both the Rovers and Berrigan sides undefeated with 7-0 records, Rovers have scored more, Berrigan have been scored on less and the Rovers are on top of the ladder due to a higher percentage.

Under 14’s are sitting in fourth spot ahead of Blighty on percentage and are taking on a Berrigan side that is on the bottom of the ladder with no wins from seven games but don’t count Berrigan out because bottom sides will always get their all against finals contending sides.


It’s going to be an interesting round of matches in both Football and Netball as in some competitions the sides are right beside each other on the ladder.

Don’t forget after the game is the Mustaches & Mascara Masquerade Ball which starts at 7pm.
