What the club says: “Like last year, I don’t think we’re going to win a huge amount of games, but we’ll be very competitive in every game,” Heart president Michael Robin said.

“Every year we get a little more competitive, last year we won and few and there weren’t a lot of big scores in most of the games.”

What we say: Expect Wodonga Heart to be in the bottom two again this season, but with more than two wins to its name.

The club has shown signs of improvement in recent seasons and aims to be more consistent again in 2017.
