Lauderdale v. Launceston (Lauderdale Sports Ground) – 12:00pm

Form Guide (most recent first): Lauderdale – L L L L L L L B | Launceston – W W W W W W W B

Last Time They Met: Launceston 21.14 (140) def. Lauderdale 0.0 (0) – Round 3, 2019 at Lauderdale Sports Ground

Lauderdale and Launceston will take on each other this Sunday at Lauderdale’s home ground.

Launceston kept Lauderdale scoreless the last time they met in round three.

Lauderdale were also kept scoreless in round eight against Glenorchy despite their continued efforts. Lauderdale are sitting last on the ladder but will continue to look for little wins as the year continues.

Launceston defeated Clarence by 13 points last week and remain on top of the ladder two games clear of Glenorchy in second. With plenty of star power across the field, the Blues will be a tough task for the developing Bombers.

Form Guide (most recent first): Glenorchy – W L W W W B LW | Tigers – L L W L L B L L

Last Time They Met: Glenorchy 10.13 (73) def. Tigers 1.0 (6) – Round 1, 2019 at KGV

Glenorchy hosts the Tigers once again in round nine after they first met this season in the ANZAC Day match.

Glenorchy kept Lauderdale scoreless last week and finished the match with 181 points and eleven different goal kickers to stamp their authority on the competition.

The Pies are currently sitting in second on the ladder, two games behind ladder leaders Launceston.

The Tigers took on North Launceston in round eight, and although it was an extremely close match they were defeated by seven points.

The Tigers have won one match this year but over the last couple of weeks in particularly have shown that they are gelling well as a team.
