After the last two SEABL Rounds on the road, the Hobart Chargers are playing a home game for the last round of this year's SEABL before the finals start! Things are looking good for the Chargers at the back end of the season, with both men's and women's teams winning all of their Round 14 games.

Every game of the SEABL this year has been tough. Many argue that the level of competition this year is the highest that it's ever been. The Chargers men's team lost to the Rangers in the finals last year, but we don't see things going the same way in Friday's game.
Despite sitting above the Tigers on the ladder, everyone on the Chargers side knew this would be a tough game. Both teams had won four of their last five games before Friday's game, and neither side wanted to tarnish that record.
