We are back to Get Wines Direct Oval for the first of three home games which will lead into the finals. There are three changes to last week’s side with Matt Veszpremi and Joseph Ciranna coming in to replace the injured Nick Lynch and Kurt Manuel. Brae Morgan from the under-19s will make his senior debut as the 23rd man. Off the field we have the women’s lunch and straight after the game there will be live music in the rooms.
Tonight Macleod 1 plays Craigieburn 2 at RMIT at 6.45pm while Macleod 2 takes on Craigieburn 3 also at RMIT at 7.35pm. It is the last regular season game for both teams but Macleod 1 will be in finals action next week.
