TSL preliminary final: Launceston v Lauderdale at Blundstone Arena

Sports reporter Corey Martin brings you live coverage from the game at Bellerive Oval. 

LAUNCESTON and Lauderdale have both toppled each other as the away team already this season, with Saturday’s neutral venue to be the deciding test.

Blues boss Sam Lonergan and Southern Bombers coach Darren Winter have forecast a toss-of-the-coin contest in the preliminary final at Bellerive Oval.

Launceston were 11 points too good at Lauderdale Oval in round 4 while Winter’s men, who are coming off a 94-point second semi-final loss to North Launceston, were three goals better in round 13 at Windsor Park.

Liam Meagher received the call up to replace suspended Lauderdale ruckman Toutai Havea.

The Blues are unchanged.
