Rovers eye off joint lead
By MARK ROBINSON
RICHMOND Rovers have a golden opportunity to join joint leaders Goonellabah and Ballina on top of Soccer Far North Coast's Tursa Premier League ladder tonight, when the minor premiers meet a struggling Casino outfit at Colley Park, Casino from 8pm.
Rovers hit top form with a 6-1 flogging of Maclean last week and go in as hot favourites against a Casino side still looking for its first win.
The remaining four games of the round will be played tomorrow, featuring some interesting match-ups.
Italo Stars could also grab a slice of the lead if they can upset Goonellabah at Barrow Lane, as could Lismore Workers if they win their away clash with Byron Bay.
Ballina needs a home win over Bangalow to keep the challengers at bay, while Thistles make the daunting trip south to the Clarence to take on Maclean.
