Rovers and Brigades will be fighting for a ticket straight into the 2018 Great Northern Football League grand final when they go head-to-head on Sunday.

The second semifinal clash will be held at Warren Taylor Homes Recreation Ground on Sunday at 2pm and Rovers will be looking to redeem themselves after a loss to Brigades in round 16.

Rovers coach Ian Comben said his team had been training well for the past fortnight.

“I’m reasonably happy but we have a couple of guys under an injury cloud,” Comben said.

In round 16 a strong Brigades outfit came out victorious, handing the Demons their first loss in the home and away season, 18.14 (122) to 10.14 (74). Hawks youngster David Little booted six goals.

“We were right in the game until the last half and then they got the jump on us,” Comben said.

“Poor discipline cost us dearly in the second half but I’m certain this won’t happen again.”

The Hawks are a dangerous force in this year’s league competition, winning the last 11 games of their home and away season.

The Demons finished the home and away season on top with only two losses.

The loser of this weekend’s game will face Towns in the preliminary final on September 9.

Brigades coach Bryce Kennedy was contacted for comment.
