The schedule for the second week of the Bupa Tasmanian State League Finals Series has been released after an entertaining opening week of action, with UTAS Stadium set to host a tantalising double-header.
Minor premier North Launceston will return from the week off to face a confident Glenorchy outfit that is fresh off a come-from-behind victory over the Blues in Saturday’s Qualifying Final.
The Magpies remain one of only two sides to have defeated the Northern Bombers in season 2018. The winner of this contest will go through to the Grand Final, while the loser will have another chance in the following week’s Preliminary Final.
Launceston will host Lauderdale in a do-or-die Semi Final under lights at UTAS Stadium, with the Blues coming off a 14-point loss to the Magpies and the Bombers fresh from a big 58-point win over the ‘Roos.
These two clashes will come after Mercury Cup Semi Finals between Clarence and North Launceston and Launceston and Glenorchy.
The schedule for the opening week of the Wrest Point TSLW Finals Series will be released shortly.
