WITH another week off behind us, the Spencer Gulf Football League fires up again for another big weekend.

Round 10 promises to display three tight contests, with first playing second, third facing fourth, and fifth taking on sixth.

Both South Augusta and PropRisdon Lions are in red-hot form and the match at Central Oval could go either way.

South are coming off a loss to Solomontown, which has slipped them down to third, while Lions’ win over Central Augusta solidified their spot in the four.

Both teams have players in super form, so expect a fantastic display on Saturday.

Last Time: Lions 8.9 (57) def. by South 10.6 (66)

Patrick’s Pick: South by 10 points

Port and Central Augusta will face off in the battle of the two bottom sides at Port Oval.

The Bloods must win if they want to keep their slim finals hopes alive, while Port will see this as their best chance to get back on the winner’s list, with Central having had some very poor performances.

This game could also go either way, but Port’s injury list is quite long and they haven’t been very competitive in recent weeks.

Last Time: Central 16.11 (107) def. Port 8.9 (57)

Patrick’s Pick: Central by 20 points

Another game that is hard to predict is the top of the table clash between Solomontown and West Augusta.

Sollies seem almost unbeatable in Port Pirie, while the Hawks seem slightly out of form in the last few games.

Cats gun Corey Davey has to be considered the Madigan Medal favourite at this stage of the season, while West ball-getter Nic Collins is back from his hamstring injury and could have a major impact on the game.

Last Time: Sollies 8.14 (62) def. West 8.11 (59)

Patrick’s Pick: Sollies by 15 points
