Warragul Drouin Gazette: “Eight point game” looms for Dusties


With all respect, most games this round will have an expected winner from the outset. However, Dusties versus The Goon looms as such an important game for both sides at this stage of the season. Both teams could be branded as having underachieved so far this season (given their preseason hype), particularly Nar Nar Goon who would have rued dropping last week’s game to Cora Lynn.
In the radio broadcast game, both Garfield and Dalyston have shown they are not the easy beats they were last year. The Magpies are however, the side with the wins on the board. It will be interesting to see if the Stars can get reward for effort with a win in front of their home crowd.

SENIOR FIXTURE (Seniors scheduled start 2:10pm):

Warragul Drouin Gazette: Close result expected as Bloods face Eagles


Match of the round falls easily to the radio broadcast game in Ellinbank vs Trafalgar. The Eagles look like a real contender this year, while the Bloods will want to send a message to the rest of the league that their credentials are worthwhile as well.
Poowong versus Yarragon is the other game of interest. First year coach Rod Gundrill seems to have set some continuity in the Magpies camp, while the Panthers have managed to get the job done when they are on for the day. Fifth spot on the ladder is up for grabs and both sides will be keen to put their best foot forward in securing it.
In the other games, Nyora’s recent improvement shown will see them go in as favourites in their clash against Nilma Darnum. Lang Lang seemed to have dropped off the pace a bit in recent weeks and will be keen to challenge the more highly fancied Neerim South. Lastly, given current form, Buln Buln will be expected to make short work of Catani.

Warragul Drouin Gazette: Can Drouin grab their first win?

Bairnsdale Advertiser: Available via subscription only


Moe have been viewed as the side most likely to stop the Leongatha juggernaut this season, and this weekend we get to see the two sides clash. The Lions have shown that with a full side they are tough to beat, but they will still need to bring their best to contend with a slick and polished Parrots outfit.
Sale will want to capitalise on their home ground advantage when they host Morwell after a bit of a false start this year.
The radio broadcast game in Maffra and Drouin will draw fans’ interest to see if the Hawks can snag their first win of the season against a side that has now fallen away from their once illustrious form.
Bairnsdale will have to bring their best at home against an in-form Traralgon side.
Wonthaggi will go in as hot favourites against Warragul.

Warragul Drouin Gazette: Can Thorpdale start to dream of finals?


The battle of the two Tigers sides looms as an important one for both sides, as the pair have lost games they have been expected to win and vice versa. Foster will want to remain in touch with the top six, while Mirboo North will look to maintain their spot at the top.
Thorpdale will be riding on a high with two wins in a row for the first time in a while when they take on Morwell East. The Hawks will want to bounce back after a hefty loss to ladder leaders Newborough, while the Blues will have finals in their eyes in they can secure the four points.
Tarwin’s slow start to the season will not be helped facing old foe Fish Creek who will also be feeling good after a win last week in a low scoring slog.
Boolarra’s promising start to the season has been all down hill since then, losing their last three games after notching a hard fought win at home in Round 1. They will also be coming up against an up-and-about Yinnar, who are looming to return to their 2022 form that saw them win the flag.
MDU will go in as favourites against Hill End, who have seemingly fallen out of their enviable form in recent years.
Toora will have their work cut out for them when they host current premiership favourites Newborough.

SENIOR FIXTURE (Seniors scheduled start 2:15pm)

Sale City (7th) vs Heyfield (6th) – Stephenson Park, Sale

Woodside (2nd) vs Rosedale (9th) – Woodside Rec Reserve

Cowwarr (8th) vs Glengarry (10th) – Cowwarr Rec Reserve

Gormandale (11th) vs Churchill (3rd) – Gormandale Rec Reserve

Traralgon Tyers United (1st) vs Yallourn Yallourn North (5th) – Tyers Rec Reserve

BYE: Yarram (4th)


Gippsland Times: Playing for pride


TTU will look to take advantage of Yallourn Yallourn North’s patchy start to the season when they clash this weekend. The Bombers took care of the highly fancied Churchill with ease last week and the Jets will need to revisit their 2022 form to make sure they are ahead at the final siren.
A young Heyfield side that has strung together a few wins in a row will go in confident against Sale City in the Pride Game.
Cowwarr and Glengarry looms as a game of interest with both sides seemingly sitting around the same sort of playing field.
Woodside will look to put a young Rosedale side to the sword to do their top two hopes no harm.
Gormandale will have to be on their guard against a travelling Churchill side who got embarrassed by TTU last week.

SENIOR FIXTURE (Seniors scheduled start 2:15pm)

Lindenow (8th) vs Boisdale Briagolong (4th) – Lindenow Rec Reserve

Orbost Snowy Rovers (5th) vs Lucknow (2nd) – Lochiel St Reserve, Orbost

Stratford (3rd) vs Wy Yung (1st) – Stratford Rec Reserve

Lakes Entrance (6th) vs Paynesville (7th) – Lakes Entrance Rec Reserve


Bairnsdale Advertiser: Available via subscription only


Game of the round is the grand final replay between Stratford and Wy Yung. The Tigers once again look the goods this year, however the Swans will know they are gettable.
Lakes Entrance will see this game as a great opportunity to secure the four points against a vulnerable Paynesville side.
Orbost Snowy Rovers will be keen to stay in touch with the top 4 by securing a win against Lucknow at home, though the Magpies won’t be easybeats as they look like they are just starting to hit their stride.
A young and undermanned Lindenow side will go in as underdogs against the travelling Boisdale Briagolong, who will be eyeing off a potential percentage booster should the Cats drop their bundles early.

SENIOR FIXTURE (Seniors scheduled start 2:30pm)

Swan Reach (1st) vs Bruthen (5th) – Swan Reach Rec Reserve

Buchan (4th) vs Lindenow South (6th) – Buchan Oval

Swifts Creek (2nd) vs Omeo Benambra (3rd) – Swifts Creek Rec Reserve


Bairnsdale Advertiser: Available via subscription only


Buchan will look to make it two wins in a row and maintain a spot in the top 4 in their clash against last placed Lindenow South. The Cavemen will have the services of ex-AFL star Jordan Lewis, as part of the Carlton Draft promotion.
Swifts Creek will start as favourites against old foes Omeo Benambra. While the Apline Ranges are sitting 3rd, their previous clash saw the Demons the victors to the tune of 87 points.
Bruthen will have to be at their best to be any chance against Swan Reach, who have announced early days that they are the team to beat this season.


Warragul Industrials vs Bass Coast Breakers – Sat May 27, 6:40pm, Western Park Warragul


Warragul Industrials Development Team vs Bonbeach – Sat May 27, 4:40pm, Western Park Warragul



A divisional restructure in the SEWF mid season has seen the Bass Coast Breakers move back into the Premier tier and with their Div 2 wins carrying over, they currently sit pretty in first spot. The Dusties however, have been slightly indifferent since moving into Premier this year, but will go into the game with the knowledge that this is anyone’s game.
The Dustis development team will be the curtain raiser to the main womens game, taking on Bonbeach.


Drouin vs Moe Newborough – Sun May 28, 1:00pm, Drouin Rec Reserve

Boisdale Briagolong vs Lindenow South, Sun May 28, 2:00pm, Boisdale Rec Reserve



We should have a premiership favourite by the end of this round with the two top sides in Boisdale Briagolong and Lindenow South clashing at Boisdale. The Bombers will be looking to regain their crown after not fielding a side last year, while the Swampies will be looking to consolidate their credentials after finishing bridesmaids to Moe Newborough in 2022.
Newcomers Drouin will be hunting their inaugural win in the senior competition against Moe Newborough who appear to have lost a bit of talent this year.
