COLTS KEEN TO CONSOLIDATE IN TOP THREE AFTER A BREAK
It's been a long wait but the Colts are back and raring to go this week against an in form Broadbeach Cats. Due to the scheduling of the Seniors Toowoomba match, the Colts have had a two week wait to make amends for their close loss to Labrador in Round 4. Over the past fortnight the young Magpies have trained really well, working hard on key points that let them down that week to make sure they are in the best nick possible for their Round 7 home game.
Sam Hartog and Tristan Dowdy have kept their spots in the Reserves this week and the Colts welcome back Ethan Sivijs from Senior footy and young Harry Keenan from way out west gets an opportunity to play his first game for the Magpies. The Colts have a host of inclusions this week as they look to ensure that everyone on their list continues to get an opportunity to show their wares.
The boys will be looking to improve on their ball movement forward of centre this week in order to give their talented forward line every chance to kick a winning score. The backline has been solid as a rock all year led by key defensive player Whitlam Bishop, who is having a fine season at CHB. Caleb Franks was a valuable inclusion against Labrador, and will be an integral part of a quality on-ball brigade that welcomes back Will Gillespie and Josh Commons this week.
The Pies sit fourth on the ladder with a 3-1 record and Broadbeach are second with a 4-1 record. The Colts will need to be ready to go this weekend against a quality team sitting above them on the ladder. The Colts are starting to understand that there is no such thing as an easy game this year and that they have to be raring to go for a full four quarters if they want to get out with the 4 points.
The game starts at 9:30am sharp at Chelmer and the Colts heirarchy will be looking for a few helpers to run the boundary and assist with some odd jobs.
