Central Whyalla v West Whyalla
Saturday’s early game to kick off round six sees last-placed Central take on the reigning premier West.
The Roosters have had a tough time of late and are coming off their worst performance so far this season, a 79-point loss to Roopena.
One plus is the amount of game time they are getting into their juniors, the short term will be painful but should hold them in good stead for the future.
The Dragons on the other hand have been in cruise control since losing to North a month ago and don’t look like slowing up.
The Dragons disposed of the Roosters in round one and I can’t see things being any different, the Dragons to win in a canter.
West by 75 points
South Whyalla v Weeroona Bay
Saturday’s late game see fourth-placed South take on fifth-placed Weeroona Bay.
With only two premiership points splitting the two sides this game is looking like the match of the round.
The Demons are little bit of a Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde, their best has shown they are capable of mixing it with the best as seen against league leader North on the weekend but their poor can be real poor leaving them open to defeat by any side.
The Tigers are a little the same and probably just lack the consistency of being able to play four quarters, when they do find that consistency they are a hard side to play.
Both sides will be desperate for the two points especially with both sides looking like fighting it out for the last two finals spots along with Roopena.
It will be close but I’m leaning towards the Demons to have enough firepower to get them over the line.
South by 16 points.
North Whyalla v Roopena
Sunday closes out the round with top dog North Whyalla taking on the boys from Fisk Street, Roopena.
The Magpies are undefeated and sit on top of the tree, they had to dig deep last week after being seriously challenged by the Demons but proved to have all the answers getting home in a close one.
The good Roopena showed up last weekend as they thumped last placed Central and will come into the game full of confidence hoping to turn the tables on the Magpies after letting their round one encounter slip through their fingers.
The Roos are quite capable of winning this game but will need to match the Magpies for physicality or it will be win number six for Bomber Watts’ boys.
North by nine points.
