Tigers keen to se­cure top spot

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

HER­MIT Park will have the chance to put the AFL Townsville mi­nor premier­ship be­yond doubt when they take on the Curra Swans at Mul­doon Oval today.

It will be the last chance for the Tigers to fine tune their fi­nals prepa­ra­tions be­fore a bye next week­end, but they’re al­ready in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion hav­ing won 10 of their past 11 games.

Her­mit Park and Univer­sity are level on 52 points, but the Tigers have the su­pe­rior forand- against and they can’t be dis­lodged from top spot should they beat the Swans.

Curra is on a high af­ter notch­ing their first win in two sea­sons against North­ern Beaches be­fore last week­end’s bye, but they’ll face a mam­moth chal­lenge to stop Her­mit Park’s charge.

Mean­while, de­fend­ing pre- miers Thuringowa will be look­ing to build some fi­nals mo­men­tum against the North­ern Beaches Suns at Tony Ire­land Sta­dium tonight.

The Bull­dogs haven’t been as dom­i­nant as sea­sons past and they’re com­ing off a loss to Univer­sity, but they have a good chance to bounce back against the fourth- placed Suns.
