GOLDEN Square will chase back-to-back BFNL reserves premierships on Saturday, but faces a tough challenge against Sandhurst.

Such is the depth at the Dragons, Sandhurst’s side, coached by Brenton Dillon, features five players – Harry O’Meara, Jake McLean, Galen Munari, Luke O’Sullivan and Seb Greene – who were all part of last year’s losing senior grand final team.

The Bulldogs, coached by Christian Carter, have been strengthened by the inclusions of three-time senior premiership player Dale Lowry and Bendigo Pioneer-listed Jordan Rosengren, who were omitted from the senior grand final side.

The Dragons and Bulldogs have met twice this season, with the ledger one apiece.

The two clubs have shared two reserves premierships apiece in the previous four seasons.

Saturday’s reserves grand final kicks off at 11.40am.


Rd 14 – Golden Square 9.8 (62) d Sandhurst 6.8 (44).

Rd 8 – Sandhurst 9.7 (61) d Golden Square 8.7 (55).



11.40am Saturday at Queen Elizabeth Oval, Bendigo.
