"This hurts either way doesn't it?" he said when the question was put to him.

"It will be a different game.

"The students, Albies, will be fast and Walcha will be heavy.

"It is going to be an interesting one to watch and I would be an absolute fool to try and say which child I love the most."

They will play at Peter Fenwicke Oval in Walcha.
