Roos primed for
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.
