BRIM will see football action return to the recreation reserve on Saturday when Warrack Eagles host Minyip-Murtoa. 

It’s turning into an important section of the season with the Warrack Eagles outside the top five courtesy of the Burras greater percentage, the Burras sit in fifth. 

Burras coach Damian Cameron said the outcome of this contest will be important for his team if it wants to play finals football. 

Cameron said he would appreciate some consistent football by his players. 

“We want to obviously get off to a really good start, the games we have lost this year have a similar trend which has been a slow start,” he said. 

Cameron said it’s the same old story when coming up against the Warrack Eagles, the oppositions midfield is its strongest point. 

“To nullify a couple of their midfielders would be nice,” he said. 

“The like of Ryan McKenzie, Nick Peters and Shannon Argall are some of the best in the league. When they are in the same area of the ground, it’s probably their strength.” 

Important Burra heads in Brayden Ison and John Delahunty are likely to miss the clash due to injury. 

Cameron said Pat Purcell has had a consistently strong season in 2018. 

“He’s probably been one of the standouts in my eyes. Gus Trethowan is in really good form at the moment at Callum Hobbs is hitting a bit of form at the moment,” he said. Cameron said if the middle tier of footballer in the side can play consistent football, it would be a key moving forward into finals.
