Despite being undefeated after 11 rounds of the Upper Murray season, Bullioh coach Peter Dean believes his side will enter Saturday’s clash against Corryong as underdogs.
“Corryong’s the team to beat we reckon, but in saying that, Federal has had a big second half of the year,” Dean said.
“We’ve finished third, fourth and fifth (in recent years), but I think the standard of the league has dropped to a degree and we’re always consistent as a club.
“The stars have aligned a little bit at the moment, but there’s still basically another round to go and Corryong and Federal are playing pretty good footy at the moment.”
The Demons boast the league’s leading goal kicker in Jarrod Williams, who has snagged 65 in 10 games, but Dean admits there’s strong players on every line.
Cudgewa can draw level with Federal if they beat the Swans at home, while Border Walwa will start heavy favourites against the winless Tumbarumba.
