MATCH OF THE ROUND

If this clash between Torquay and Drysdale is as good as the previous meeting in Round 5, then fans that head to McCartney Oval should be in for a treat. On that afternoon at Mortimer Oval, the Tigers overcame a 25-point deficit at three-quarter time to beat the Hawks by seven points. With the Tigers sitting fifth, one game behind the second-placed Hawks, the importance of the match can’t be understated. If Torquay was to lose, and Modewarre beats Newcomb, the Tigers would drop out of the top five with five rounds to play. A win for Dom Gleeson’s men draws them level on wins with Drysdale and maintains their hopes of claiming the double-chance. However, forward Paul McMahon, defender James Saker and veteran Roscoe Holmes will be missing from the team that lost to the Warriors before the break.

BOOST FOR COUTAS

Queenscliff will field close to its strongest team of the season when it hosts Anglesea. The Coutas will welcome back Daniel DeGois, Tom Limb, A.J. Davie, Alex Snowdon, Jason Graham, Jayden Durran, Mitch Butteriss, Michael Randone and captain Jake Hedley as they chase their third win of the season. The Roos will be boosted by the return of veteran big man Zane Vail from suspension, but Dyson Bell-Warren will be missing.

MILESTONE FOR MATTNER

RILEY Mattner will play his 100th game for Geelong Amateur in Saturday’s clash with Ocean Grove. Mattner joined Ammos from Langhorne Creek in South Australia. Mattner has become one of the most reliable players at KFC Oval, featuring in the 2015-16 premiership teams.

AMMOS HONOUR HIGGINS

Geelong Amateur will wear black armbands in honour of former coach Kevin Higgins against Ocean Grove. Higgins, who played 153 games of VFL football with Geelong and Fitzroy, and guided Newtown & Chilwell to three GFL premierships, was in charge at Queen’s Park in 1996-97, taking Ammos to their first finals appearance in the BFL in his first season.
