Ocean Grove vs. Torquay @ Ray Menzies Oval – Saturday, 2:10pm

MATCH OF THE ROUND

Modewarre will have to defy a couple of pieces of history if its to beat Geelong Amateur and remain on top of the BFL ladder. The Warriors haven’t won at KFC Oval since 2005 – it’s only victory over Ammos at the venue since the two clubs joined the competition in the mid-1990s. However, Modewarre did have the better of Geelong Amateur in the final round of last year, snapping a 12-match losing streak. But it hasn’t won consecutive games against Ammos since taking home the four points in Round 18, 2001 and Round 6, 2002. The Warriors will be without interleague best-on-ground Matt Farrelly (unavailable), but Hasker Dawborn returns from a bout of concussion suffered against Newcomb in Round 6.

STAR TRIO TO MISS FOR TIGERS

Torquay will be without star trio James Saker, Matt Deledio and equal leading goalkicker Paul McMahon for the clash with Ocean Grove. Saker and Deledio are both unavailable, while McMahon is battling a finger concern. The Tigers, who sit fourth, just a win behind ladder leader Modewarre are well-positioned for a return to finals action as they chase a fifth consecutive win.

MODDA MEMBER OF THE WEEK Sam Romeril Now in his second year at Modda, he played an integral part in the 2018 premiership team. He is full of some great jokes so if you see him around just ask him. Look out for number 42 on the wing! ———————————————————————— What’s your biggest fear? Josh Finch having a set shot after the siren to win a grand final. ———————————————————————- What brought you to Modda? Cody Grant and I were looking for somewhere to play and heard only good things about Modda. Was told a number of times “Modda has good functions” – all we needed to hear. ———————————————————————— Favorite movie? Abiding Citizen ———————————————————————— Most annoying teammate and why? Josh Hamilton – Because we look the same and I always get called Hamo but no one calls him Romma ————————————————————————- If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be? Dan Morter’s special twice cooked 13mm thick cut golden fries. ———————————————————————— If you were stranded on a desert island who is the one teammate you would take and why? Nath Ablett – I’m sure he’d have plenty of stories and wisdom to keep me entertained but mainly because he’s my favourite player.
