SEARCHING for its first win this North Gippsland football season, Rosedale host Heyfield as split round three concludes on Saturday.
The Kangaroos have had two weeks to assess their performance against Yarram, and are expected to rebound strongly.
The Kangaroos were sluggish at times, particularly during the final term, when they conceded five goals without kicking one themselves.
The 55-points loss contrasted with their 59-point victory over Sale City in round one.
However, Yarram’s 79-point victory over the previously undefeated Woodside on Good Friday shows the Demons are a strong team this season.
Two weeks ago, the Blues lost at home to Cowwarr by eight points.
Trailing by 30 points at half-time, Rosedale came back to level the scores at the final change. The Blues will need to avoid giving the Kangaroos a good start tomorrow.
Dale Fleming has been the Blues’ best player in both losses, but will need others to share the load.
HAVING rediscovered some of its premiership-winning spark, Sale City will head to Gormandale.
The Bulldogs responded to a poor showing in round one by dominating Churchill before the Easter break.
Still a work in progress under coach Steve Hazelman, the Tigers have had triple-figure defeats to begin the season.
COWWARR can join Yarram at the top of the ladder with victory over Glengarry.
The Saints are now the only other undefeated side following the Demons’ Good Friday victory over Woodside.
The Saints will be looking to make the most of a “friendly” start to the season, with a tough block of matches to come.
Beginning the season with a 17-point loss to Churchill and 139-point thumping of Gormandale, the young Magpies will enter Saturday's contest believing they’re a chance to win.
TWO teams which have been below par over the first two rounds, Churchill will host Traralgon-Tyers United.
Before the Easter break, the Cougars were challenged by Glengarry to begin the season before losing at home to Sale City by 68 points.
TTU has lost both its matches, and another on Saturday will make the Bombers task of making the finals a lot harder.
