SFL LIVE: Watch Sorell take on Dodges Ferry this weekend

After a number of down years the Eagles are hell bent on returning to finals action this season and after recruiting a number of talented players over the past two summers are starting to build a list capable of making some noise in the SFL.But despite its talented young list the Eagles are yet to click into gear in 2022 to hold a record of just two wins from their first five matches.Ahead of their home game against the Sharks [4-1] on Saturday, Perkins said it would take some time for the Eagles to gel this season with a high number of new faces, but that he was bullish about the future success at the club.The former Lauderdale footballer also said the young side were showing glimpses of what they could become but that showing more consistency each week would be key to climbing the SFL hierarchy.“We have a lot of new kids on the block this year but we have some players that have come from TSL level which has brought in a lot of experience and we are on the right path that’s for sure,” the athletic midfielder said. “I think once we get a few more games into the younger blokes then things will definitely be on the up for Sorell.”“I think it’s one quarter of footy each game that’s really letting us down.“So we are trying to have a real focus on putting that four quarter effort in each game and not letting one quarter let us down.”Despite a poor track record against its upcoming Dodges Ferry opponent, Perkins was hopeful the Eagles could take down the tough Sharks on Saturday.“They’ve obviously had the wood over us in recent times but we are looking forward to hopefully playing four quarters of good football and getting the win on Saturday.“Beating them would be awesome because we haven’t done it for a long time so hopefully this year we can get it done.”As well as stopping the Sharks monster full forward Cambell Hooker, Perkins said a key to an Eagles win would be limiting the impact of the Sharks midfield bulls. “They’ve got a strong midfield and they’re a big bodied midfield with [Jono] Bullock and Ben Richmond and guys like that so we’ve definitely got our work cut out for us.”Perkins said Sorell would be boosted by midfield duo Nic Baker and Clint Riley for the clash.The Eagles and the Sharks will do battle at 2pm on Saturday at Pembroke Park.In the other Round Seven match ups New Norfolk will host Brighton at Boyer Oval, Cygnet will travel to Abbotsfield Park to take on the struggling Pies, and the Two-Blues will head South to take on Huonville in a blockbuster matchup.
