Two teams that asserted themselves in the top four through June have earned the Player and Coach of the Month awards with Hobart Chargers’ Tre Nichols and Geelong Supercats’ Leon O’Neill taking out the awards respectively.
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.
There was never a doubt that going up against the top ranking team would be a challenge for the Chargers. Nunawading played a strong first half, but the boys were able to match them, resulting in a tied game when the half-time bell rang.
Tallying a league-high for the season with 43 points, Craig Moller has earned the Round 8 Player of the Week award after leading the Hobart Chargers to an important top-four victory against his old club, Ballarat Miners.
Today we are excited to announce the launch of the Hobart Chargers Merch Store, the most convenient way to get your hands on some of the classiest apparel in the SEABL. From hats to claps, tops to snapbacks, we have a huge range of awesome Chargers kit just waiting to be worn.
HOBART faces a crunch 24 hours against two of the most dominant SEABL sides of recent times but the rewards will be huge if the side can continue its own blazing form.The Chargers host last year’s East Conference finalists Mt Gambier at home tonight.
In unfamiliar territory outside a finals position at the moment, Mt. Gambier sit at 3-3 and face a difficult road trip against one of the better home teams so far this season in Hobart who own a 5-2 record overall.
The Chargers are 3-1 at the Derwent Entertainment Centre and are winning by an average margin of 14 points while four victories on the trot have raced them into fourth position after a shaky opening fortnight.
