After it appearing that results in Mallee Footall may be easier to predict in Mallee Football in 2015 after only three rounds there have arguably two ‘upset’ Firstly the big one with Murrayville defeating powerhouse BDT the a week later Murrayville going down to Pinnaroo. This helped Tipsy head for the desert.
At the same time Lameroo comfortably accounted for another of the sides with premiership thoughts Peake last Saturday.
This week we have perhaps another moment of truth with Lameroo to be at home to BDT. The Hawks are flying high and with Ben Grieger and Shaun Walker likely to return to a form side that boasts so many red hot players like the Ridgways and Haydon Thorpe this may be tough for the Crows who have not reached high altitude at this stage. But you simply cannot ignore Patrick Barrett, the Richardsons, Josh Keller and co, some of whom are being tried in new roles. This is tough for Tipsy but he likes LAMEROO by a bird’s feather.
Karoonda against Murrayville on form would see the points heading into Victoria. But Tipsy has been singing ‘it ain`t necessarily so’. The Magpies hope to have coach Ben Qunn back and it is interesting to see that Luke Hocking seems to have recharged the batteries. Some form from Luke could help with the scoring woes which see 13 goals in total from three games. Murrayville has already been hot and cold but one fellow who is hot is Clayton Sporn. Form suggests MURRAYVILLE but Tipsy admits that he is slightly concerned.
Peake was certainly not at its peak last week. Trevor Rigney and Gabe Phillips appear to be the essential dynamos for the side. Pinnaroo its opponent will be cock`a`hoop after last week’s win in which newcomer Micah Vanloon starred. Pinnaroo`s Chad Nickolls against Patrick Gabb looms as a crucial duel but in the end PEAKE is seen as pocketing the premiership points.
