Will Simon Taylor be playing for Box Hill reserves again ? If so, he could be a hard one to match on for Coburg. This game should be pretty close.

I never predict the result on a game the Stangers are playing in - this one will be close. That being said, the season is starting to feel a bit like 2006. That year Willy and the Dolphins were the dominant Reserves teams and Box Hill hit form at the right time, coming from 4th to defeat them both in the Prelim Final and Grand Final to claim the Premiership. Does lightning strike twice ??

Coburg Tigers 3.4 4.5 8.13 9.15 (69) Box Hill Hawks 1.3 4.8 6.12 11.15 (81) GOALS: Coburg Tigers: Lynch 4 Gazzo Corr Morgan Collard Robertson Box Hill Hawks: Smithwick 3 Carey 2 Cross 2 Angelopoulos Shore Bayliss O'Sullivan BEST: Coburg Tigers: Rayson Davis Vasilevski Foster Clifton Simpson Box Hill Hawks: Warby Daniher Bayliss Nye Shore Kelleher REPORTED PLAYERS: Coburg Tigers: Nil Box Hill Hawks: Nil Great effort by Box Hill today who seemed to handle the hurricane wind better than its opponents with better disposal. The turning point was Box Hill's 2 goals into the breeze midway through the 3rd quarter (including a great running goal by Lachy Carey 8) ), after the Burgers had opened up a 3 goal lead and threatened to establish a match winning lead by 3/4 time. Amazingly, Coburg played into Box Hill's hands in the last quarter by starting with an extremely defensive mindset. As a result the game was played almost entirely inside the Mustangs 50 metre arc and it was only a matter of time before they hit the front. It was only after Box Hill gained the lead that Coburg realised it would have to score to win the game and actually got the ball into its forward line. Unfortunately for the Burgers they join the long list of teams that have gone through the home and away season unbeaten and then exited the finals in straight sets. So the Reserves Grand Final will be a repeat of the 2006 Grand Final. With the weeks rest, Williamstown will be the shortest of favourites, but as we saw 2 years ago anything can happen on the big day. Another hailstorm would be nice :lol: .

coburg were a very arrogant team during the year, a game i watched they continully told the oppo how good they were, maybe some karma, or over confident

Well done to Box Hill. I'd have Williamstown as warm favourites for next week, but the results between the two sides has been up and down all year. Rd 7 - Williamstown by 100 points at Burbank. Rd 18 - Box Hill by 23 points at Box Hill. Qual Final - Williamstown by 55 points at Burbank. Depends a bit on what sides line up I guess, but having seen the game between these two sides a fortnight ago I reckon it'll be a ripper. Williamstown only marched away with that game in the last 10mins. As for Coburg - ouch! Win 16 of 16 and then drop two finals. Finals pressure or over confidence?

Coburg reserves out in straight sets after being udefeated all season. Greenvale in the EDFL only loses one game for the season in the Grand Final against Keilor. Heidelberg down by 44 points at 3/4 time against Montmorency but boot 10 goals to nil to win in amazing comeback. I watched Melbourne Storm lose to the Warriors in the NRL and was gutted. Will bounce back against the Broncos. The battle of North melbourne on Sunday- North Ballarat v Werribee. Pity Frankston did not hang on otherwise it would have been two standalone teams in one Prelim and two part aligned teams in the other. Great for footy.
