Ex­pe­ri­ence a

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Hdfnl Finals - BY GRANT KUCHEL

AHor­sham District fi­nals ap­pear­ance is some­thing that has be­come a peren­nial oc­cur­rence for the side from Cameron Re­serve at the foothills of the north­ern Grampians.

In re­cent sea­sons, La­harum has proven to be a fear­some fi­nals com­peti­tor with a never-say-die at­ti­tude per­haps fos­tered from leaner times.

Led by co-coaches Rob­bie Miller and Todd Hey­nen, the Demons have been an ex­tremely con­sis­tent side dur­ing the sea­son and younger play­ers have grown in leaps and bounds, draw­ing on ex­pe­ri­ence from ev­ery game.

De­fen­sively, La­harum has two highly ca­pa­ble key de­fend­ers in Brett Ervin and Tom Craw­ford who can match it with the best op­po­si­tion for­wards in the league.

Angus Martin is also dam­ag­ing, whether in the ruck or drift­ing for­ward to pro­vide an at­tack­ing op­tion and can of­ten slip un­guarded into the for­ward 50-me­tre arc.

The worry for the Demons is they need Martin in both places and are pre­sented with a rob-peter-to-pay-paul sce­nario.
