The Great Western Lions will be on the road for their Mininera league round 12 match when they face the Rovers at Mininera.

The visitors have struggled for much of the season and will have to be at their best if they are to knock off one of the season’s big improvers at their home ground.

The Rovers have become a high scoring team at times with their recruits slotting in nicely.

Jarryd Underwood has been one who has helped the Bulldogs in the forward half, having kicked 39 goals from his 11 games so far this year.

The Bulldogs will go in as favourites and will mover closer to a top five spot if they get the four points.

The home team’s percentage is an issue, sitting at just over 100, so a big win could also help to bridge the gap to the top teams in that area.

Great Western sit in 10th position, equal on points with the Eagles and Caramut and a win would be a big positive for the team's morale while also likely moving them a game clear of the bottom-placed team.

The first bounce is scheduled for 2.15pm.
