Hobart Zebras take on Olympia in a battle of the traditional rivals at Warrior Park. There may be little left to play for of major significance, but these are two sides who always want to beat each other. Olympia last week produced what was possibly their best performance of the season and they seem to be ending the year in reasonable form, with a view of building into next season. Players are playing for their future and a strong end to this season could determine their place for 2019. The Zebras meanwhile will not want to fall away having been in the title race for so long, wanting to push up into second place. Having smashed the Warriors 5-0 at the last time of asking, they have shown they have the weapons to get the job done and their attack will be a tough one to contain.
