A grade matches at Glassey Park are Berri versus Renmark on Friday night and in a full day at Waikerie on Saturday Waikerie against Loxton.
In the men`s game on Friday night Renmark will have Brett Stokes and Aden Shaw back from the Country Championships in WA and after a disappointing outing against Loxton in the last round when it appeared to be well down on numbers overall it will be keen to get back into the winners` circle.
But this emerging young Berri side with Sam Walladge, Tim Trewren, Dylan Couzner and Ashley Roberts in form will be no pushover.
However with the ‘boss’ back blokes like Callum Benda, Nigel Stoeckel, Ben Townsend and Shaw should get the points for Renmark.
In Saturday`s Waikerie versus Loxton clash the home side showed some form last week in beating Berri and will have Jason Redemski back from WA to join form players like Rowan Hope and Rohan Kleemann.
However top side Loxton got the job done well against Renmark last week without Steven Trezise, Zac Bartsch and Sean Burgess and if any of those SA Country representatives are back you would expect it to win well.
Friday night`s women`s match presents Berri with the chance to show it is the real finals deal.
That blend of experience that includes possibly Mirinda and Kira McMahon, Charlotte Dominic,Ada Walladge, Kris Weir and Jen Kiel is making a lot of people sit up and take notice.
Despite that I am giving Renmark a slight nod. Jamie Butters returns, Sibel Huseyin in goals, Amy Stanton, Juliet Mallinson and Danielle Weeks if they are all available might just get their side home.
Loxton at Waikerie in the Saturday match should be too good for the home side. Coach Tara Allister will be back from WA and with all of the Loxton big guns in form there looks to be far to much fire power for the Carlye Waye, Thalia Boatswain and Janine Frost led Waikerie lineup.
