Teams set to clash as both in need of win

Geraldton Guardian - - Football - Vic­tor Tanti

Mullewa play at home to Northamp­ton to­mor­row in a game both teams need to win to im­prove their bot­tom line.

Mullewa are 0-7 this sea­son and for them the fight is for sur­vival as much as it is about com­pet­i­tive­ness, but last week they were spir­ited against a weak­ened, but still for­mi­da­ble, Towns.

Norths have won twice, an 18point win over Mullewa on May 7 and a 23-point win over Bri­gades two weeks later.

Mullewa pres­i­dent Peter Sweeney hopes the worst is be­hind the Saints and they can fin­ish 2016 on a strong note and re­group for 2017.

“We have Northamp­ton, then Rail­ways at the Rec which is ac­tu­ally a home game for us, Chap­man Val­ley away, Bri­gades at home, Rovers away and Northamp­ton at home to end the year,” he said.

“I reckon we should beat Northamp­ton twice at home and maybe get an­other one some­where.

“A cou­ple of weeks ago a few fel­las from Mt Mag­net came down to bol­ster num­bers and that’s helped — we’re not out of the woods, but trav­el­ling bet­ter than we were.”

For Mullewa, Mor­ris Comea­gain will look to main­tain his ex­cel­lent form, as will Leed­ham and Jamien Papertalk.

For the Rams, dan­ger­ous for­ward Nathaniel Mouram­bine is only six goals short of 100 in league ranks, while Kayle Cripps has been on great — and po­ten­tially Clune Medal-win­ning — form.

Kings­ley Smith will, as al­ways, lead by ex­am­ple, while Jamie Wil­liams and Bryce Rob­bins are oth­ers who could have a big say in the out­come.
