Bleeding Bloods keen to rebound

October 20, 2017

Karramomus legend Chris Keady won't play in the Haisman Shield tomorrow, instead he will play with his son Lachlan in C-grade.

It is back to business for Karramomus.

The Bloods were badly beaten by Kyabram in the Haisman Shield last Saturday and will look to bounce back at Vibert Reserve tomorrow against Tatura.

They were missing a number of players, but should be able to recall Mitch McGrath, Adam Bovell (both away) and Luke Forge (illness).

Karramomus captain Jason Ibbotson said his side would have to be at the top of its game to get its second win of the season.

‘‘It’s going to be a close game and Tat has been a bit unlucky,’’ Ibbotson said.

‘‘It’s a crucial game because if we lose this one we’re right near the bottom of the ladder, but if we win we stay in touch with the top sides.

‘‘Last week was pretty disappointing and we just need more consistency.

‘‘Even last year we showed some good signs at times, but could fall away and that does go a bit with availabilities.

‘‘If we can limit the changes from week to week, that will help and it’s pleasing we have near a full side to pick from this week.’’

Not in the team will be star veteran Chris Keady.

But he will be playing cricket tomorrow, just not in A-grade.

The six-time Lightfoot medallist will instead be in the Bloods’ C-grade side, as he wants to play in a game with son Lachlan.

‘‘It’s a thing he’s wanted to do for a while and good on him because it’s going to be a great thing to do,’’ Ibbotson said.

Keady might not play his first Haisman game for the season for a few more weeks.

‘‘We’ll probably get him for a few games before Christmas, so it’d be good to win a few games without him and to have him back would be a bonus,’’ Ibbotson said.
