What has round four got in store?

GOROKE comes alive this weekend as Naracoorte rolls into town for their clash with Border Districts.

The next generation Dees are pulling their weight with Drew Myall and Keenan Jacobs heading the list of some serious up and coming talent.

For the home side, they were smashed in round one and flogged in round two but responded in style in round three - dishing out the punishment to Kybybolite.

Similarly to Naracoorte, Borders have a lot of young players filtering through their side along with some top level talent taking charge.

Border Districts recruit Ky Miller tracks down a loose ball in front of Kyby opponent Cody Ireland with teammate Elijah Ware in support. on Saturday. The Eagles were too good for Kyby with Miller (three goals and plenty of disposals) and Ware (six goals) key factors. The Eagles now come up against Naracoorte at Goroke on Saturday.

Kybybolite travel down to Penola looking to get that first win on the board. With a developing side they have struggled to match more experienced teams and this looks like being a continued theme for the season. Last week all it took was two good forwards with decent delivery in to do major damage and this week it gets even harder with the Penola pairing of Brodie Foster and Adam Merrett.

Merrett, officially announced as the 2014 KNTFL interleague coach following his 2013 success, kicked eight goals against Lucindale last week and centre half forward Foster was named best on ground in the same match.

At the other end, former coach Scott Carberry kicked two goals on return for Kyby and would have been better for last weekend's run.

Lucindale play Bordertown looking to get back on the winner's list after a not unexpected loss to Penola on the weekend.

Minus Tim Walsh, who made a cameo the week before, Lucindale lacked a big marking target in their forward line and struggled when getting the ball into attack. Bordertown possess at least one player on every line who could lay claim to being one of the best in their position in the league and they play well as a team.

Lucindale will need to pull out all stops to get over the line and as such Bordertown will start hot favourites.

Keith were pushed to the limit by lowly Kingston last weekend and return to their home patch to play Mundulla this round.

Both sides are finals contenders and will be looking to get another four points banked as teams try to settle into 2014.

The Crows were well held by the Saints and Mundulla had a disappointing loss so both sides have room to improve from round three. Ben Simounds has been a standout so far for Keith but failed to trouble the scorers last weekend and will be looking to rectify that with a good showing against the Moots. Meanwhile surprise packet Daniel Burgess sits on 19 goals from three games for Mundulla, proving to be a handful.

Kingston have the unenviable trip across the border to Kaniva to face K/L United to round out the weekend. Despite an improved showing last weekend Kingston are still 0-3 while the Cougars were disappointing last week and due to bounce back.

Padthaway has the bye.
