Busselton and South Bunbury face off in Sunday’s SWFL women’s top-of-the-table clash at Sir Stewart Bovell Park.

The Tigers, who have been irrepressible this season under Maxwell Jetta, will fancy their chances against the Pies, who struggled at times during Sunday’s 35-point loss to the Bulldogs at Payne Park.

A big component of the Tigers’ success this season has been their ability to get first use out of the centre and supply their forward line with quality delivery.

With Kate Fielding back in the line up, the Magpies will have to work overtime, given the Tiger’s impressive start to the 2019 campaign.

Nipping at both the Tigers and Magpies are the Harvey Bulls, who take on the winless Eaton Boomers on Sunday at Glen Huon Reserve.

The Bulls showed no mercy against the Eagles on Saturday, with an uncompromising first half display putting them out of sight by half time.

Although the Boomers continue to improve, this home assignment appears to be a tricky one on paper for them.

On Saturday, John Farr’s Bulldogs travel to Kelly Park in a bid to make it three consecutive wins, with the reigning premiers in ominous form since their opening round loss against the Bulls.

3.10pm Carey Park v Bunbury at Kelly Park
