Teams set to clash as both in need of win
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.
