MYRTLEFORD captain Hayden Murray is loathe to make any predictions about his side this season.
Although encouraged by last weekend’s comfortable victory against Greta, Murray believes the competition will take time to sort itself out.
“We have had a pretty good start as the first-up bye gave us time to get organised and we had a practice match against Belvoir as well,” Murray said.
“Last week was good to get a win against Greta as the boys played well.
“But we just want to be competitive each week and if we can do that you are going to win more games than you lose.”
Murray has lured Jayden Vescio and Kane Stevens back to McNamara Reserve on a regular basis this season to complement the likes of Geoff Sundstrom and Brad Piazza.
He expects a hard-fought match against Wangaratta Magpies today.
“They are probably similar to us in that they have a few experienced players and some young blokes as well,” he said.
“It will be interesting to see how we go.
“The competition will take a while to sort itself out.”
Rutherglen will be looking to build on its strong start to the season by defeating Yarrawonga-Mulwala.
With captain Jon Shaw on fire last weekend, the Redlegs defeated City Colts and Sam Stewart and Jakeb Meyer should provide enough support to get them over the line again.
Bruck will be too strong for Beechworth at Beechworth.
Jon Hyde, Nathan Thompson and Darren Petersen were among the runs last weekend and it will take something special from the home team to even get close.
Corowa will battle against City Colts and Whorouly-Gapsted take on Rovers United.
