Round 3 of the AGL will be held on the 28th of April at 2pm and see the W.A. Raiders take on the Victorian Eagles at Curtin University in Bentley, WA. The Victorian Eagles are sitting with a 1-1 record, defeating SA Sharks in round 1, 46-0, and going down to the defending champions, the Qld Sundevils in round 2, 34-18. WA Raiders come off the bye week last week and had a tough round 1 win over the NSW Wolfpack, 15-13.
With Victoria’s return to the AGL, they are a mysterious and tough opponent. WA came second in the last AGL championships and will be looking to take the W over Victoria to secure their chance at the AGL title.
The offensive powerhouse of Ben Gastarov, Vincent Villicano and Blake Marklew should be able to put some points on the board while the strong defense of this Raiders outfit will be looking for a shut-out. Defense is led by veterans Ben Middleton and Brandt Honda who will be looking to shut down Victoria’s import Quarterback and defeat their passing game.
For all the live action head on down to Curtin University, Edinburgh at 2pm or watch the live stream through www.facebook.com/AustralianGridironLeague/
