Head to Head:
Last Time They Met:
West Coast Wonders 17.11 (113)
Gold City Royals 14.6 (90)
Season 26, Round 10 @ The Colosseum
Both of these sides find themselves out of the 8 desperately needing a win to stay in touch. The Wonders last 5 matches have seen them go LWLWL which suggests they should be winning this week. The Royals suffered consecutive losses and it was a horror show. Smashed all over the ground by the Bears with key stars such as The Filth Wizard and brahj putting in shockers. Can they turn things around to lift the Royals back in the 8? Or will the Wonders continue their roller-coaster ride with a win?
Ruckman are a highly important component in the SFA and it's crucial that they don't go unnoticed. U2tigers is emerging as the SFA ruck candidate due to a dominant season. Number 1 in hit-outs but, most importantly, number 1 in hit-outs to advantage so his mids are getting first use of the ball. That's where it stops for the Wonders unfortunately due to their inept forward line but U2tigers has been busting his gut out for his team.
U2tigers will be up against one of the very few Royals who can hold their heads high. Whilst not the most dominant ruck in the comp, he is very dangerous around the ground so old mate Bono will need to be extra alert. It's all well and good to win the ruck battle but you also need to be accountable around the ground, which is what GC exactly is and makes up for his lack of dominance in the contests.
Danger by name, not by nature. Football is a team game and he is one player who is not putting in enough at the moment.
The Filth Wizard
The former Hawk has mostly been enjoying life at his new club as he sits 3rd in the Fred table with 29 goals at 3.6 a game. However, he only managed 2 kicks and 1 point in the Royals horror loss to the Bears last Sunday. The Royals will need a far better performance from him to win and, for his sake, to stay in touch with the Fred.
This is a game where an online sim provides the results so ****** if I know.
