Newcomb (9th) vs. Barwon Heads (2nd)

Newcomb Sand & Soil Oval

Saturday, July 1, 2:10pm

BARWON Heads’ premiership credentials have come under the microscope following losses to Torquay and Modewarre in the last three weeks. The Seagulls were unable to go the distance with the Warriors last week, surrendering top spot for the first time in 2017. However, they should have no problem bouncing back against Newcomb. After their drought-breaking win over Portarlington, the Power were hit by injury and unavailability for last week’s meeting with Geelong Amateur and were, not surprisingly, put to the sword. The margin was 146 points back in Round 1. Newcomb coach Rory Nicol will be expecting better this time around. With Corey Enright, Cam O’Leary and Darcy Williamson among the outs, the return of Zac Gubbins from suspension and inclusion of Chirs and Max Melzer means Barwon Heads will still have plenty of talent on display.

Last time they met: Round 1, 2017: Barwon Heads 26.16 (172) def. Newcomb 4.2 (26) @ Howard Harmer Oval

Prediction: Barwon Heads by 61 points
