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.
