MATCH PREVIEW: Melbourne Rising v NSW Country Eagles

Melbourne Rising will host NSW Country in a crucial NRC clash for both sides in the penultimate round of the 2015 season. The fourth placed Eagles kept their season alive with a 32-29 victory over Perth Spirit on the road last Sunday but will need to kick up a gear once again tomorrow to challenge last year's minor premiers at home. Melbourne, now in fifth after losing to the Vikings on Friday night, face the Sydney Stars in the final round and like the Eagles, will most likely have to win both matches to book a spot in the finals. They welcome back Colby Fainga’a, Pat Leafa and Lopeti Timani for the clash.
