After another near perfect season, Carisbrook will head into this weekend’s qualifying final against Lexton as clear favourites.
Dropping just one game this season to Natte Bealiba in round eight, Brook will be confident that it can defend its premiership title and maybe even add another notch to its belt this finals series.
The Redbacks went back-to-back last year and could very well be in for a three-peat if finals play out as easily as the home and away season did.
Lexton will be extremely grateful of its top four placing and the lifeline it guarantees ahead of this weekend.
The Tigers had a tough start to the season, losing their first four games in a row but incredibly haven’t dropped a game since.
Claiming 11 wins and one draw with Maldon in the following 12 rounds was an impressive show of strength and shows exactly why the Tigers deserve to be in the competition’s top four. Carisbrook handed the Tigers one of their losses, back in round two by a fairly harsh 72-point margin.
