Friday 21st June
Glenorchy v. Lauderdale (KGV) – 7:00pm
Form Guide (most recent first): Lauderdale – L L L L L | Glenorchy – L W W W B
Last Time They Met: Glenorchy 25.11 (161) def. Lauderdale 1.0 (6) – Round 4, 2019 at Lauderdale Oval
Glenorchy will host Lauderdale in round eight at KGV with both sides coming off the back of big losses.
Glenorchy went down to ladder leader Launceston by 53-points last week. The Pies are sitting second on the ladder after winning four out of six games so far.
The only two games that the Pies have lost were against Launceston, who are proving to be a challenge for every side this season.
North Launceston got the better of Lauderdale in round seven, keeping them scoreless in their second encounter and winning with a score of 151-points.
Lauderdale are currently sitting last on the ladder and are yet to win their first game, however they are new to the competition and continue to improve each week.
But with stars across the park, expect the reigning premiers to again be too strong in this one.
