It is a fair conclusion that this has been the strangest season in the history of football, from grass-roots, to the state leagues and to the AFL. The impact of Covid-19 has resulted in a mind-boggling schedule for the 2020 SANFL season; nevertheless, the footy must play on. It’s the sixth round of the season and Sunday afternoon will see a clash between two quality sides that have yet to find some grip. The reigning premiers, Glenelg will host Sturt at ACH Group Stadium and the hosts are tipped to edge out the away side.

However; it has an unconventional few weeks for the Tigers since their gritty victory against the Panthers as they have suffered three consecutive defeats. Despite three consecutive losses, the reigning premiers suffered all narrow defeats which displays they’re competitive. A three-point defeat to North Adelaide, a 16-point loss against West Adelaide and 20-point defeat to top of the table Woodville West Torrens showcases some form still present in Glenelg.
