THE Murray Bushrangers will be playing for their TAC Cup season when they face the Northern Knights at Wangaratta’s Norm Minns Oval tomorrow.
Darren Ogier’s line-up needs to win to be guaranteed eighth position or they must rely on Western Jets beating the Sandringham Dragons on Sunday.
“It’s good we still control our own destiny,” Ogier said.
The absence of Jydon Neagle and B.J. Squire will hurt the Bushrangers through the midfield, but they will welcome back Victorian Country most valuable player Nick Holman and Benalla speed machine David Mennen.
Forward Josh Schache, elevated to the TAC Cup list, will return to add firepower up forward, while Albury’s Dylan McDonald will make his debut.
Michael Gibbons, Jarman Impey and Jake Sharp led the way as the Bushrangers leading possession winners in last weekend’s loss and Ogier will call for more support to return to the winning list.
