They will come up against the R246 Lions who they played in the final round of the season, resulting in the Goannas’ only loss for 2016. The Lions have perhaps been the surprise packet of the competition this year, being lead strongly by Japan’s no.1 player Michito Sasaki, former-league best and fairest Dean Dowey, and powerful forward Jun Sekiguchi.
The Lion’s run proved too strong for the Goannas in their last encounter, but the Goannas will welcome back a number of key players this week including Captain Dan Last, Coach Sam Ghirardello, games-record holder Travis Wilson, and experienced on-ballers Jarrod Woodward, Andrew Shinners, and Josh Bootsma.
The Goannas will need to be back to their best if they want to turn the result and advance to their third Grand Final in as many seasons.
With the recent ledger between the two teams at 3 wins a piece, this one promises to be a belter! Make sure you get down to YCAC this Sunday to support the boys in red and white! Bounce from 13:10.
