Finals fight looms
Dodges Ferry clash crucial for Eagles
its training outside the club and spent a night at the Hobart Aquatic Centre pool and a night at the Derwent Valley PCYC.
This week the team has been working hard on the track in preparation for Dodges Ferry.
Both teams sit outside the top five on six wins, with Hobart and Cygnet narrowly edging them out, who are both on seven wins.
What hurts New Norfolk is that it has three games left to play, whereas Hobart and Dodges Ferry have four each to play.
What helps the Eagles is that it plays Dodges Ferry and Cygnet in two of those three games, and the other is against a winless Brighton.
Parker acknowledges that playing two sides that his team is battling against for a finals spot in the last three games is helpful.
“Getting to play teams that are around the same position than us puts our season in our hands,” Parker said.
“Hobart has a pretty tough run. They have to play Lindisfarne, Huonville and Claremont.
“It could come down to our final game against Cygnet to see who gets a spot in the final.
“But we have to take it one week at a time and our focus is on the game coming up.”
