We’re at the halfway mark of the WDFNL

We’re at the halfway mark of the Warrnambool and District league season already and what a season it’s been so far!

In the senior football, two contenders go head-to-head when Nirranda and Merrivale face off in a rematch of last year’s decider.

The Tigers got the chocolates when the teams met in round one but since then the Blues have been unstoppable, winning all eight games to see them sit at the summit of the ladder.

Both teams have been impacted by injuries but will be hoping to have some personnel return for the fixture.

Old Collegians versus Panmure should also be an intriguing contest.

Despite the departure of some key players in the off-season, the Bulldogs under new coach Adam Courtney have impressed and sit fifth on percentage.

The Warriors are ninth and will be up for the fight but the Bulldogs will see it as a must-win if they are to play finals.

In the A grade netball you can’t go past the clash between Blues and the Tigers.

Just like the football it is a rematch of last year’s grand final between two contenders for this year’s silverware.

The Blues, the reigning premiers, haven’t lost a game all year and will go in favourites but that won’t deter the second-placed Tigers, a quality side which will undoubtedly lift for the occasion.

In the other fixtures, Russells Creek play Dennington, South Rovers host Kolora-Noorat and Allansford face Timboon Demons.
