The Rovers are coming off a great first-up win over 2009 A Grade side Old Essendon in Round One of the VAFA Premier B season away at Essendon Grammar School and now look forward to playing in front of a big Rovers crowd against the bloods.
Old Haileybury are sure to be a tough opponent as always. In their season opener, they were defeated by the highly-fancied University Blacks by only five points at McKinnon. They also feature ex-AFL star Brett Voss wholl make it a tough contest in the middle.
In 2009, the two teams were evenly matched with both teams winning their respective home games.
