COLTS KEEN FOR THREE IN A ROW IN LATE GAME
The Western Magpies Colts are in an enviable position this week with almost a full list to choose from for their Round 3 match up with Wilston Grange. Playing at home for the first time this year, and with a 4:45 pm start after the Seniors match, the Colts will be pumped and primed for a big outing.
The focus this week has been about ensuring that the intensity remains up for the full four quarters and that all players remain switched on and dedicated to the team’s structures for the entire game. If the Colts are able to minimise the gap between their best footy and their worst footy they should be able to present a difficult challenge for the other teams in the QAFL.
This week sees the return of Abdullah Haddad, Max Webber, Saxyn Pobjoy and Tristan Jackson which should provide some much needed run and energy around the contest. Hopefully the forwards all pack their kicking boots this week and finish off some of the good work happening further down the field. Jordan Bonney, Jack Austin and Jacob Sheath have been in great form so far this season and coach Reid Dobson is looking forward to them really taking a game by the scruff of the neck. The Pies defence looks far more settled this week with Hamish Campbell and Whitlam Bishop holding down the key posts, which should give the running backs the opportunity to spread and create from the half back line.
With competition for spots heating up it's important that the group prepares well this weekend and puts their best foot forward in what promises to be a real challenge up against the Gorillas.
