A much needed win this week for the Bullants in an understatement. There are two simple scenario’s for the Blue & Gold this week;
a) Lose – and their season and potential survival in Division One is all but over.
b) Win – and their season and survival in Division One keeps a small flicker of a heart beat.
The Bullants will again be away this week against a Yarra Valley side who is struggling to claim their first four points of the season. Although last week was another loss for the Bullants to a top four side, they will take confidence out of the 5 goal loss and hope to claim their second win of the season against an Old Boys side who are coming off a 15 goal loss.
A positive last week was to see Kristian Cherbakof and Oliver Schmidt back after a hefty stance’s on the sidelines. Cherbakof was lively up forward kicking 5 goals and also Schmidt (usually a backmen) kicking two goals of his own.
Although Saturday’s game is the battle for bottom place, it is living up to be a very interesting one in the context to how the rest of the season pans out.
