3/4 time at The Stadium and it's a very close contest with the home team slightly in front @ 12/1019/84.9 to King Island's 10/839/83.9. Banchang have been well served by ever reliable Cunnington 146, Dawson 120, (his highest score), Impey 117 and Jonas 102 in a return to form but were unfortunate to have their ruckman, Sinclair, go down early after dislocating his shoulder twice. Meanwhile the coach of King Is. @Tylo would be very happy with Naitanui's 99 in his 1st game for quite some time, while deBoer's replacement, Hickey, did well for his 93. However he would be more than happy for his star midfielder Macrae who played exceptionally well for his 142 and well supported up front by Boak with 114. The last qtr sees the Monarchs Gardiner Cotchin Murphy Fisher and Long (oop) try to make up the 180 deficit, and then score more than Lyons Langdon and Robinson, who will be doing their best for The Barcrawlers to get the win. It's anybody's game.
