2:05pm, Just about to Kick off at Warrior Park- Follow the Live Blog

2:00pm, The Super League games and two Northern League Cup games are set to kick off.

1:30: South Hobart have named their starting XI against Somerset with Dan Brown, Hugh Ludford and Loic Feral all rested so it’s a very youthful looking side with first starts of the season for youngsters Matthew Oh and Jack Bowman. Somerset are without their star striker Kyrone Johnson which is a big omission for them.

South Hobart: Brown, Bowman, Gorrie, Hall, Hamlett, Kass, Kemp, Morton, Oh, Qualie, Walter.
Subs:Cook, Leszczynski, Moncur, Conforti

Somerset: Treloar, Whitehouse, A Johnson, Hyland, Buckingham, K. Johnson, Hingston, Eaves, Berne, Smith, Blizzard. Subs:Kirkland, Jordan, Nettleton, Phillips

12:40pm- An unfortunate update from Warrior Park where the wild winds are set to prevent us doing the Super League Live Stream. The winds are unfortunately prohibitive in terms of setting up on the far side of the ground, with our Stream guru Ash nearly getting decapitated. We will still be able to do the Zebras v Warriors game, on battery power from upstairs, but it won’t last long enough to do the double header sadly. Our apologies, Ash is good, but even he can’t fight the weather! So instead you can follow the Live BLOG coverage of the game here.

11:30am- One of the more interesting story lines today sees Gabriel Markaj making his senior coaching return. After being ousted at the Den, he has been working with the Hobart Zebras Under 18 side as well as assisting with the senior NPL side. With Tommy Fotak away he will be taking the reins for their League Cup quarter final against the Warriors. To some that may seem eye raising but the Zebras players have been giving rave reviews of his training sessions and tactical knowledge. There is no doubt he knows the game intimately and is giving every indication he has learned from his mistakes at the Den. Certainly something to keep an eye on this afternoon and it’s hard not to root for a character like him to succeed, he was last spotted hugging it out with Charlie White in Grape last Saturday night.

Gabriel Markaj will coach Hobart Zebras today

11:15am: The Examiner reports thats redemption is on the cards for the two Launceston based NPL sides in their respective quarter finals

The Championship and NPL seasons may be in the book but there is still no shortage of top level football to be played out today.
