FIVE QUESTIONS WITH COREY SMITH
Q: No doubt it would have been frustrating not to be able to play against Murray Magpies last weekend being a Victorian based player?
A: It was but fortunately it was the match of the round and I could watch it on Facebook in my lounge room. It was tough to watch, especially when there was only a kick in it.
Q: Lockhart president Bob Mathews ruffled a few feathers last week with his comments that rival clubs have only got themselves to blame for recruiting Victorian based players?
A: I thought Bob's comments were a bit of a kick in the guts and Lockhart is in the middle of nowhere and nobody from Victoria would want to drive out that way. No doubt Bob would love to have his time again.
Q: Jindera will be no easybeats on the weekend?
A: It's probably no secret the Bulldogs had a crippling injury toll early and have shown some good form over the past month. We won't be treating them lightly but won't lack confidence either on our home deck.
Q: The league goalkicking title is set for a thrilling finale with at least five players still capable of winning the award including yourself?
A: I don't think Hayden Armstrong can find too many excuses if he doesn't win it considering the silver service he gets from the star-studded Osborne midfield who hit him lace out on most occasions.
Q: Speaking of delivery, who do you rate in that regard at CDHBU?
A: My eyes light up most when Nathan Rhodes gets his hands on the ball and finds some space.

MATCH OF THE ROUND: Holbrook v RWW Giants
The Giants will look to put a controversial week where they lost coach Lucas Mellier to suspension for three weeks behind them when they travel to Holbrook on Saturday. The Brookers won by almost 10 goals when they met earlier this season and the visitors will be looking to at least narrow the gap significantly. But expect the Brookers to score a comfortable victory ahead of their heavyweight clash with Osborne next weekend.
Verdict: Holbrook by 36 points
