(Reserves Curtain Raiser Northern Bullants vs North Ballarat starts at 10am)
1st meeting between these 2 teams
The Bullants have been very much up and down this season while the Coasters have always been there abouts. This is a must win game for the Bullants and they should beat the Coasters narrowly.
