THE two undefeated sides of Central Murray will finally do battle in a stand-alone clash titled the Worksafe Game of The Month.

THE two undefeated sides of Central Murray will finally do battle in a stand-alone clash titled the Worksafe Game of The Month, which is a name that still probably does not give it enough justice.

In the past month, the Mallee Eagles have entered their clashes with under-strength teams due to a number of key absentees from their best 22 - but that has not tarnished their record of 7-0.

Cohuna Kangas have been the surprise of the competition, rising from their 6-10 finish in seventh last year to currently sit third with a straight six wins.

While the Roos will be hopping into the nest of the Eagles at Lalbert, Cohuna playing-coach Scott Beattie holds no fear of the host's winning run.

"Undefeated or not, they're a good side. They gave us a fair touch-up last time. That comes with our preparation," Beattie said.

"We only really start to look at those records later in the season if sides are still in that position. It means they're head and shoulders. 

"But it's a pretty even competition at this stage, so we're not going to let that impact."

Eagles coach Dean Helmers has no intention of under-estimating their opponents either. 

"I think it will be a really great challenge. Both sides have been travelling along pretty well, so our boys are in for a very tough game, but we'll back ourselves in to win," Helmers said.
