Roos primed for

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

Har­row-bal­moral looms as the main chal­lenger to South­ern Mallee Gi­ants in Horsham District league and will en­ter the fi­nals se­ries con­fi­dent it can take it up to the com­pe­ti­tion yard­stick after push­ing it to four points a few weeks ago.

The Roos boast two of the best mid­field­ers in the league in Nick Pekin and Eric Guthrie.

Both are big-game play­ers who also thrive on the big stage.

Throw in the likes of Cal­lum Hobbs, Hamish El­lis, An­thony Close, Hugh Dou­glas, Jan­dre Slab­bert and Greg Hamilton and it’s easy to see why they are qui­etly con­fi­dent of break­ing the premiershi­p drought down south.

Har­row-bal­moral, sim­i­lar to South­ern Mallee Gi­ants, rep­re­sents more than a club. It flies the sport­ing flag for a broad re­gional com­mu­nity and has there­fore al­ways had a strong fol­low­ing.

In his third year at the helm, coach Paul Cleaver has made small tweaks to the game plan, added on-ball tough­ness through the ad­di­tion of Pekin and the mid­field speed of Hamilton.
