Pimpinio v Taylors Lake
Ground: Pimpinio Recreation Reserve, Saturday, 2.20pm.
Umpires: A. Hallam, G. Rigby and J. Taylor.
Last time they met: Round 14, 2013. Pimpinio 13.15 (93) d Taylors Lake 6.9 (45).
THE game Taylors Lake has prepared itself for all summer has finally arrived.
The Lakers will look to immediately improve on a winless 2013 when they travel to the Pimpinio Recreation Reserve to take on the Tigers on Saturday.
The winner of the match will walk away with four premiership points in the bank, but Lakers coach Deek Roberts said a win would mean much more than that for the club.
“It’s probably the biggest game the club’s had in two years,” he said.
“The guys are pretty level-headed about it, so hopefully they get out on Saturday and show a bit of composure and don’t take too long to get into it.”
Pimpinio’s Mal Coutts said it was hard to gauge how his side would perform after only one practice match during the pre-season.
Luke Ridell, arm, will miss for the Tigers and Dylan Bushby, knee, is out for the season.
“We haven’t got any star players, so it has to be all about the team,” Coutts said.
