A big game here at Wentworth Park with the 7th placed Kingborough taking on the 8th placed Clarence. This game is important for both sides, with the Lions looking to catch Rangers and Clarence searching for their first win. The last time these two sides met at this venue it was a draw, and hopefully it’s a similarly tight contest today.
