Colbert can see success on way

July 28, 2017

There is an air of confidence among Seymour's playing group as Goulburn Valley Football League heads into the business end of the season.

There is genuine belief within the Lions’ den that Seymour can win the premiership.

Brent Colbert’s side has won four of its past five games to sit fifth — and the playing coach, who will step down at the end of this season, can sense something special is brewing.

‘‘Spots are up for grabs, there is competition for places and the feeling amongst the group is pretty strong,’’ Colbert said.

‘‘There is a really good buzz around at the moment and you just have a sense the guys are starting to feel that they can be a real contender.’’

The Lions will be looking to continue that form tomorrow when they travel to take on an upbeat Mooroopna outfit.

The Cats are fresh off a road win against Echuca last week.

‘‘They are coming off a good win, whoever beats Echuca in Echuca is in good form,’’ Colbert said.

‘‘They have a few dangerous players in their side and we’ll need to stop them in their tracks.’’

Mooroopna coach Dale Osborne was looking to work off a clean slate before last week’s upset triumph.

‘‘We went in as if it was round one again, we started over and we were fortunate enough to win,’’ Osborne said.

‘‘We haven’t been favourites at all this year and with a fresh attitude I am just hoping the boys can back it up and go in and give it a crack.’’

Ajak Dang will return for the Cats tomorrow, while Burnie recruit Romain Grenville has kicked 30 goals from 10 games, including three or more in each of his past five games.
