LI­ONS, BOOMERS GLORY BOUND

South Western Times - - Front Page -

Har­vey-Brunswick Leschenaul­t will lock horns with the Ea­ton Boomers in Sun­day’s SWFL grand fi­nal at Hands Oval. Ahead of the big game, Li­ons co-cap­tains David New­man and Jonathon Fen­wick joined Boomers skip­per Ro­han Lilly for an early glimpse of the pre­mier­ship cup.

One of the hard­est pe­ri­ods for a foot­ball coach can be the week of the grand fi­nal, due to the sev­eral con­ver­sa­tions which might have to take place.

Due to the fact SWFL clubs have big se­nior lists, not ev­ery mem­ber of each squad is guar­an­teed a spot in the fi­nal team.

Both Li­ons coach John Baggetta and Boomers coach Brett Maguire told the South Western Times they would be open and up­front with all of their play­ers in the lead up to the game, to min­imise the nat­u­ral dis­ap­point­ment for those who have been un­lucky to be se­lected.

Our foot­ball writ­ers have put their heads to­gether and put for­ward an ed­u­cated guess on how both Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenaul­t and the Ea­ton Boomers will line up in the SWFL league grand fi­nal.

One man who should com­mand a lot of at­ten­tion will be Li­ons for­ward Sean Bradley, who hasn’t skipped a beat since ar­riv­ing from his WAFL stint at Su­bi­aco.

Baggetta praised Bradley’s gut run­ning dur­ing his side’s train­ing run last Sun­day and mar­velled at the sheer ease yet self­less na­ture with which the big man went about his busi­ness.

The Boomers will be hope­ful both Matthew Scott and Her­man Humphries have re­cov­ered from in­juries last week.
