TSL round 8

In the TSL, having disposed of reigning premier Glenorchy, North Launceston's at home this weekend with a mission to remain unbeaten this season.

Bombers coach Tom Couch expects the team to keep a level head when they host a struggling Tigers.

"The boys have played enough finals now, won and lost, to realise to win a match in round seven doesn't really mean that much."

He expects the Tigers to be seeking to make amends after they were annihilated in their last game.

"They wouldn't have been too happy with their performance on the weekend, so I think with the forecast with the rain, bit of wind, I think it's whoever puts their head over the footy and just gets the ball going their way, so it's going to be a good challenge."

The match gets underway at Launceston's UTAS Stadium tomorrow at 2pm.
