With Vic Country completing a big win, it was now time for the Vic Metro boys to take to Visy Park against Tasmania with the local boys looking the dominant side on paper as Joe Barresi reports.

Northern Knights boys Jacob Ballard (28 disposals, one goal), Nathan Hrovat (32 disposals) and Nick Vlastuin (28 disposals, eleven marks) all found plenty of the ball for Metro, as did Oakleigh's Tom Temay who gathered 30 disposals and kicked two goals. Up forward, another two Oakleigh Chargers boys put in outstanding performances with Kristian Jaksch and Jackson Macrae starring with six goals each.
For the Tasmanian's, Jackson Thurlow was the standout with 45 disposals and thirteen marks while Calen Jeffery (30 disposals and nine marks) and Bryce Walsh (25 disposals and four tackles) were also prominent.
