SAFL clash looms as a cracker

THE top four teams will do battle this weekend in the Summerland Australian Football League.

Top-of-the-table and minor premiers, Tweed Coast travel to Lismore to take on the Swans, who are second on percentage ahead of Byron and Coolangatta.

Tweed have won their past two games in close finishes against Ballina and Coolangatta.

After winning 14 on the trot, their recent form has given heart to their rivals.

Lismore have been off their game in recent weeks.

After a surprise loss to Byron two weeks ago, they had nothing more than a training run last Saturday and maybe it was the kick along they needed.

At home, Lismore will take it up to Tweed in what should bea cracker of a game.

Tomorrow, Byron travel to Coolangatta with the loser possibly dropping out of the top four.

Byron should regain those players who travelled north to a music festival and will be hoping for a full complement, but may again struggle to field a fit 22.

Coolangatta, who usually have number problems when they hit the road, are expecting to have a full line-up for the home game.

Ballina, one game behind in fifth spot, should give their percentage a boost when they host Nimbin at Fripp Oval.

Games today start at 2pm and the game tomorrow at 1pm.
