A huge game here at the Den with the Kingborough Lions and Northern Rangers fighting for 6th place on the ladder. The Lions are coming off an exciting 3-2 win against Clarence whilst the Rangers will be looking to improve on their 7-0 loss to Devonport. It should be a cracking game however the strong Lightwood Park breeze may have an impact.
