LIKELY IN: Kalkee’s Steve Schultz. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERGround: Rupanyup Recreation Reserve, Saturday, 2.20pm.
Umpires: S. McKinnon, D. Hutchins and P. Shaw.
Last time they met: Kalkee 20.11 (131) d Rupanyup 6.9 (45).
KALKEE is hoping to regain several key players for a last-round tune-up against Rupanyup before the start of finals.
The Kees could regain Josh Beddison, Barry O’Brien, Zavier Hobbs and Ollie Young, while Steve Schultz is likely to stay in the side after overcoming a slight quad injury from Saturday’s game against Noradjuha-Quantong.
Kalkee coach Trevor O’Brien said it would be ideal for the players to get a run at senior level before a looming qualifying final against Swifts.
“We’ve got finals in more than a week, but the first thing we’ve got to worry about is Rupanyup because it’s coming off a good win against Taylors Lake,” he said.
“We weren’t too impressive the last time we played them, but I’d like to think we’ve come on a bit since then.
“It would be good to play a solid game and get as many players in as we can before finals.”
Rupanyup coach Mick Finnigan said his team wanted to finish the season on a positive note despite being out of finals contention.
“We’re looking forward to taking on Kalkee actually, because the boys all regard it as a good challenge,” he said.
“We’ve had some good head-to-head battles with them over the years, and with an ounce of luck we might field a pretty similar team to the one that beat Taylors Lake.
“The last time we played Kalkee it was a pretty close game until three-quarter-time, so we’d be looking to replicate that and do even better this time.”
Geoff Rundell is the only confirmed out for the Panthers, but Finnigan said he was not sure who would take his place in the side.
