It’s do or die for the Murray Bushrangers tomorrow.
The Bushies’ finals hopes rest on the shoulders of the Eastern Ranges in round 17 of TAC Cup.
The Bushies will travel to Melbourne tonight ahead of their 11
With two rounds remaining, the two sides sit on seven wins each, with the winner set to claim eighth spot and play finals footy.
For Bushies coach Darren Ogier the stakes don’t get much higher.
‘‘Every game is pretty much a final from here on in for us,’’ Ogier said.
‘‘(The players) are really excited and looking forward to the contest because they know the consequences are big.
‘‘We’ve got to make the most of it and make the most of the opportunities and they’re certainly running out.’’
Will Brodie will make his TAC Cup debut as the Bushies’ 23rd player.
Brodie, 15, impressed at the under-16 national carnival.

‘‘Will’s form throughout the year has been outstanding and he continues to raise to the requested level, we are confident he will find his feet at TAC Cup level,’’ Ogier said.
Mooroopna trio Jy Simpkin, Nathan Drummond and Michael Reidy will return to the side alongside Deniliquin Rams youngster Jake Marshall.
The Bushies previously met Eastern Ranges in round five when the Ranges claimed a 17-point win.
Ogier said his side had improved two-fold since the first encounter, but had plenty of work ahead against the Ranges’ impressive outfit.
‘‘They run really hard and spread from the contest,’’ he said.
‘‘They’ve got very good skills and they’ve got some terrific midfielders.’’
The Ranges’ midfield is strengthened by highly rated draft prospect Christian Petracca.
In his third TAC Cup season, Petracca is a powerful, hard-running player who can push forward.
