Bev has enormous passion for football in Central Australia and dedicates her time, week after week, to the CAFL competition. 6 4 0 2 0 5 /1 2 Western Aranda have a big chance of jumping into the top six Pictures: JUSTIN BRIERTY Ltyentye Apurtes Derek Ronson tries to spoil Areyongas Damien Driffen THE battle for the final three places in the Ngurratjuta Cup top six starts this weekend in round 10. Already Rovers, Pioneer and Federal have all but sealed their places in the major round w h i l e S o u t h , Anmatjere, Ltyentye Apurte and Western Aranda are set to battle for finals action. Western Aranda have a big chance tomorrow when they tackle MacDonnell Districts at Traeger Park from 5pm. A Bulldogs victory will bring them level on premiership points with Anmatjere, who have the big task of Federal at Traeger Park from 12.30pm Sunday. Federal coach Scott W e i l y i s n o t underestimating the Cowboys. Weily said: The community sides are dangerous. You dont know how they are going to come out and play. Anmatjere have the Stafford brothers firing in the forward line. We need to keep them in check. Weily is also impressed with Irish recruit Keith McGowan. He said: Keith has improved a lot in his three games so far. It was his first game in the A grade last week and he kicked two goals. Weily is also looking forward to the return of Gibson Turner. Weily said: Gibson is back in town this week end and he will play on Sunday. It might be the last time he plays for Federal as he will play for Glenelg in the South Australian National Football League next week against Port Adelaide Magpies. South have a massive challenge, running into Pioneer from 2pm at Albrecht Oval. Both sides are coming off confidence-boosting victor ies and the Kangaroos need a win to start a horrendous month ahead. After this weekend, South have to come up against fellow finals contenders Rovers, Federal and Ltyentye Apurte. For Pioneer, it is a case of aiming for the top spot on the ladder. Pioneer coach John Glasson said: We have half a dozen changes to the side yet again this week so it provides an opportunity for the younger guys. South are a proud club and they are full of youth and exuberance. They will be a tough opponent. Rovers face their bogey side in Ltyentye Apurte at Traeger Park from 1.30pm tomorrow. Rovers coach Charlie Dick said Travis King is likely to return to the line-up this week. Dick said: I have put the pressure on our young guys that we have to win three out of the next five to have any chance to improve on our result last year. Winning gives you confidence and we are slowly putting our best side together. It is also the battle of the cellar-dwellers when Areyonga battle West from 4pm at Traeger Park on Sunday. The Bloods have a real chance of claiming their second win of the season and climb off the bottom of the table.
