The Western Magpies Colts will be desperate to get back that winning feeling when they travel to Noosa to take on the TigersAfter 2 losses to fellow top 4 contenders on successive weekends, following on from 7 straight wins, the Colts now have a clear indication that they still have much work to do if they want to be genuine premiership contenders this season.
It was pleasing to see that after last weeks below par effort , the squad put in a nice solid week on the track. Following some honest self assessment, and accepting the performance wasn't good enough, they have put their heads down and tails up this week to make sure they are prepared for a much better showing this week against a tricky opponent who always put up a tough fight on their home ground.
The squad welcomes back Jimmy Gainsford from suspension, and both Jeremy DeRooy & Tommy Luke from vacation . These key inclusions will bolster a side that misses Ryan Vagne with injury and the 3 young guys who performed so well last week from the u17's.
Coach Gore says " A win would be the ultimate result, but really we just need to get back to the competitive, hungry footy that we know works best with this squad. Of course we want to win, but it's also about how we present ourselves and the type of footy we play that is just as important this week"
The squad also wishes big Alex Davila all the best in his recovery from a second Knee reconstruction . Alex had his operation Thursday and all the squad are keen to see him up and about as soon as possible .
Colts V Noosa @ Noosa @ 9.30 Saturday .
