Shaw kicks 100th goal for unbeaten Crocs
From Page 40 But as the Crocs go into the final game of the regular season against Centrals at the Crocpit on Saturday, they will have to do without several injured stars, including Shaw’s brother Craig who may be out for the season with a partially ruptured Achilles.
Brad Cooper are also in doubt after pulling up with sore groins, Luke Bloom is not expected to play due to a shoulder injury and Lucas Teasdale is also doubtful due to injury.
Crocs coach Andy Viola said he expects his side to continue their brilliant form regardless of injuries or opposition.
“Sammy Boxall is back for us this week so hopefully we can fast-track his match fitness,” he said.
“Benny McCartney was great for us last week playing up forward so we’ll continue to toss a few things around and keep our options open.”
The Crocs reserve grade side will also look to cement second place on the ladder with a win on Saturday.
The final home game of the season is Ladies Day with women invited to a chicken and champagine soiree as the blokes man the canteen with heaps of great prizes up for grabs, including accommodation and spa treatments valued at $700.
Reserves start at 1pm with the main game starting at 3pm.
