Teams

In the final game of the round, the Olympia Warriors are hosting South Hobart at Warrior Park. South will need to win this by double figures at a minimum to be a chance at the title, but I think they would concede that its all over after yesterday. South have now won their last 11 games over the Warriors though, a streak that keeps growing and one Olympia are desperate to reverse. It is with a view to next season that this game is so important for Olympia. If they can remove this monkey from their backs ahead of the 2019 season, then those mental demons that have blighted them against South should dissipate when they meet next year. Given that will be a more important game from a competition standpoint for the Warriors, there is plenty for them to play for in this one. There form has been strong too, playing their best football of the season over the past fortnight.
