MID SOUTH EAST FOOTBALL 31 Tigers set to bounce back Glencoe v Tantanoola THE records will blandly show that the Tigers lost to the Mount Burr Mozzies by 17 points in Round 14 but not the fact that Tantanoola almost snatched victory in the dying minutes. The red-and-whites staged a remarkable fightback after going into the long break 43 points in arrears. They will need to analyse that critical slack period in the second term when Mount Burr earned itself what proved to be a matchwinning buffer. It was the dominant Mozzie midfield which caused Tantanoola the most grief. GIVE IT A ROOST: Robe’s Jordan Pettit goes back in readiness for a long kick. Roosters to be fresh Robe v Nangwarry WITH the benefit of a fortnight’s break and a large home ground advantage, Robe should be well ahead of Nangwarry by game’s end. The Saints will be without their ex-coach and 2007 Mail Medallist Brett Lindner as he opted to take a one-match set penalty for striking a Glencoe opponent on Saturday. By all accounts, Lindner should have been joined in the “sin bin” by some of his teammates as well as a few Murphies as there were a number of unsavoury incidents throughout the match. The Roosters will feel the brunt of the vigorous approach of the Saints in Round 15 but they have too many talented players to lose the match. If there is to be an upset, the consistent Craig Lock, coach Simon Merrett and forward Tyson Ploenges will have to be at the top of their games. Quite a few of the visitors will be playing both A grade and B grade to ensure contests in both senior grades. This strong club spirit is admirable and has been a feature of the Nangwarry Football Club since its inception. While in-fighting occurs in other clubs, the Saints have always been known for its tight and united approach. The scoreboard may have not looked pretty for Nangwarry as has repeatedly been the case in recent years but none can accuse the players of shirking a contest. PREDICTION Robe by 20 points.

Michael McRae and Leo Sharaf have only showed glimpses of their best form in 2014 while Alex Hentschke has been the team’s most consistent avenue to goal. This trio must be stopped if Tantanoola is to maintain its place in the top four. At this stage of the season, Glencoe can’t shift too far from its ranking of sixth where it has been for much of the season. Nonetheless, the Murphies would take delight in shaping who does play in the finals and they are certain to give 100pc. At this late stage of the minor round, the Tigers have the talent, but not the consistency, to challenge for the premiership. PREDICTION: Tantanoola by 15 points. ON THE RUN: Glencoe’s Nick Martin looks downfield. CLEARING KICK: Aaron Harding in top flight for Kongorong. Self-discipline needed From back page Although the Hawks are not the most talented team in the competition, they are good enough to pull off an upset victory if they are gifted enough easy goals on account of poor discipline by the Burr boys. PREDICTION: Mount Burr by 25 points. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN: Mount Burr’s Dylan Ridley on the run in a game from earlier this season. TALL TIMBER: Tantanoola ruckman, Josh McRostie.
