Launceston City v Olympia

Full Time

Launceston City 2

Olympia 5

 Olympia Warriors will be travelling up to Launceston City as second meets third. Following the Warriors points deduction, City are locked into finishing second now, they can neither go up or down so motivation might be a factor here. Their main point of motivation may well be finally getting past the Warriors in the league. Whilst they did knock them out of the Statewide Cup, it has been the Warriors who have claimed both of their Super League clashes this season, the most recent win all but knocking City out of the title race. Olympia won’t be short on it though, there is something to be said for the us against the world mentality being instilled in teams and with Taroona breathing down their necks, suddenly they need to pick up wins to hold onto third place. The most recent clash between the sides was a thrilling affair with both sides having periods in the ascendancy, ultimately it has been the superior fire power up top that has guided the Warriors home in their league meetings so far and it does appear to be an area they have the edge in. It should be a game that produces goals and there should be no shortage of action.
