A huge game here at KGV today with the Hobart Zebras taking on South Hobart. The game is a must win for both clubs, a win to the Zebras would see them move into second place on the table, whilst South Hobart must win to draw equal with the Zebras in 3rd spot. This game will have a major impact on the title race, as Devonport draw further away at the top of the table and both clubs look to make up ground.
