The Rebels TAC Cup Boys clash with the Geelong Falcons last week was proving a close contest between the two rivals until half time, after which the hard running Falcons played a dominate third quarter, defeating the Rebels comfortably. After this loss the Rebels will definitely be looking to bounce back against Bendigo, this match will commence at 2:30pm.
The Pioneers are coming off a 51 point loss to the Bushrangers last week, so will also be looking to bounce back with a win, this will no doubt make for a great contest between the two teams.
This will be the first time that all three of the GWV Rebels teams have played matches at the same venue and on the same day, no doubt the day will be packed with a high standard of football across all grades.
The Rebels strongly encourage all local coaches and the football community to come along and watch and support the boys and girls within the GWV Rebels Programs and experience the TAC CUP standard and professionalism.
