In the other AFLW Wide Bay seniors match the Brothers Bulldogs will attempt to keep close to the high flying Hervey Bay sides when they come up against the win less ATW Eagles.

The Eagles struggled in the early rounds with the club ravaged by injuries.

In their first match against Bay Power they were lucky to field a team.

ATW have improved over the past few rounds and will prove tough competition for the Bulldogs side.
