Today we see the Kingborough Lions v Northern Rangers. The Lions have been playing considerably well for the last few weeks but unfortuantly getting downed by the Hobart Zebras two weeks ago. Last week they managed to snag a 2-0  win over Clarence United who are still yet to find a win this year. On the other hand the Rangers are just coming off a heavy defeat from Devonport who belted them 7-1. Northern Rangers coach Lino Sciulli is introducing another two youngsters from the Under 18 Northern Championship team, 16 year old Jurian Dingemanse and Vincent Wolfhagen. Wolfhagen has managed to score 14 goals this season. It will be interesting to see how he plays against better opposition.
