Avoca will host Navarre this Saturday in what is expected to be one of the games of the round.
Both teams are level on points on the ladder with a four win and two loss record and Navarre’s percentage placing them in fifth position, one rung above Avoca in sixth place.
The Grasshoppers have improved as the season has progressed and their forward structure will be further improved by the inclusion of Ash Driscoll who returns after a serious knee injury last season.
Avoca is a team on the rise and this will be a big test for the
Bulldogs to see if they can overcome a long standing record that they have not defeated Navarre since the Grasshoppers joined the league in 2011.
