Two Good Friday games in a split Round 1 are set up to open the North Gippsland Football Netball League for 2018.

 

Where is it being played?: Woodside

What time is the seniors game scheduled to start?: 2:00pm

Selected sides: 

 

Last time they met: Round 10, 2017 – Rosedale 11.11.77 lost to Woodside 13.14.92

 

Todd Bryant takes the reigns at Woodside this year after winning their B&F last season. Unable to win a finals game the last two seasons, they will want to improve that record with a plethora of quality “ins”.

Coach Sam Bristow has high hopes for the Blues this season, aiming for a top 4 finish. Youth development was the name of the game in 2017 and Bristow has stated they will be focusing on their defensive pressure.

 

Where is it being played?: Yarram

What time is the seniors game scheduled to start?: 2:00pm

Selected sides: 

 

Last time they met: Round 17, 2017 – Yarram 11.9.75 defeated Churchill 6.4.40

 

Yarram will look to be a strong force again under new coach Matt Scholz, who has crossed over from Morwell. The core group remain relatively the same and the have been minimal changes on either side of the ledger for the Demons.

For Chuchill, Brendan Holt has stepped down to a playing-assistant coach role and captain of the last five seasons, Chris Williams, will coach the Cougars for the 2018 season. Churchill will also be looking to remain a strong force with minimal ins and outs. Williams has stated they will be looking to play an exiting brand of footy and move the ball quickly.
