No fear for Saints

STEPPING UP: Christian Burgess is just one of a number of talented young Saints ready for a big 2015.

MYRTLEFORD will go into its first match of the 2015 Ovens and Murray football season fearing nothing despite facing reigning premier Albury.

The Saints will host the Tigers on Sunday afternoon and hope that an opening round match-up will be a favorable time to face the competition’s best side.

“Hopefully it’s a good time to get them before they are fully up and firing,” co-coach Brad Murray said.

“We aren’t going to change the way we play, we will attack them head-on and won’t shy away from the contest.

“We would love to start the season with a win but we know it’s going to be a big challenge, they are going to be one of the top sides again.”

Despite losing six players from last year’s premiership winning team the Tigers have once again brought in ample replacements with ex-Richmond and Adelaide ruckman Angus Graham the latest former AFL player to join the club.
