MUST WIN GAME FOR COLTS IN TWILIGHT MATCH
The Western Magpies Colts enter their round 10 match up against Mt Gravatt coming off a pair of disappointing losses in recent weeks. The young Pies have freshened up this week and are keen to atone in this must win clash against the Vultures.
The Magpies will be without star pair Caleb Franks and Jack Austin this week as they travel to Melbourne with the U17's state squad, a well deserved reward for playing some outstanding football this year. A host of injuries, illnesses and other commitments have also opened the door for Lewis Campbell, Josh Commons, Tristan Jackson and Danny Grandy to come back into the line up while Cameron MacDonald will run around for his first game in Magpies colours this weekend, and we look forward to him providing first use of the footy in the ruck.
A much stronger mindset and commitment to winning the football will be paramount to the Colts success this weekend and expect to see midfield leaders Max Webber, Jacob Sheath, Sam Hartog and Sam deNys to lead from the front in this regard. The team has continued to work hard around the contest at training this week and not allowing Mt Gravatt to move the ball away from congestion too easily be a key component of the Magpies plans.
Quick ball movement and brave footy will be high on the Magpies agenda as they look to take advantage of the solid defensive work of Whitlam Bishop, Zac Stegmeyer, Tristan Dowdy and Ethan Sivijs. The forward line has had a bit of a make over this weekend with excitement machines Abdullah Haddad and Chris Jenkins looking to provide some spark and energy around the feet of Jordan Bonney and Finn Collison.
It is a vital round for all Magpies teams this week and the Colts are excited about being the final game of the day and are hoping all supporters stay behind after the seniors and support the up and coming young Magpies.
