Colts look to continue good form
The Colts have a huge opportunity to go a game up in second place this weekend when they take on the third placed PBC Lions at home. Last time these teams met things were neck and neck as the Lions snuck home by under a goal down on the Gold Coast. The young Magpies will look to turn that result around this weekend on their road into finals.
Unable to get a consistent line up due to work and injuries the Colts will welcome back Danny Grandy and Tom Slatter into the line up this weekend. Both boys have trained hard, supported their mates and rightly deserve an opportunity to show their wares against the Lions.
The young Maggies have been playing some scintillating football in patches over the past few weeks and they will look to take full advantage of playing on their home deck against a quality opponent this weekend. Beaten on the outside by PBC last time they played, look for a much more patient and well organised performance from the Pies around contests and stoppages.
Luckily for the Magpies the one area of the ground that has remained stable has been the back line and they will have another huge job this weekend holding the PBC forward line at bay. Tristan Dowdy and Ethan Sivijs are back in form and are really starting to lift their work rate in attack. This is allowing mobile forwards Jayden Johnson and Hamish Campbell to get off the chain and provide our link into Jordan Bonney and Josh Commons deep forward.
It's exciting times for the Colts and they are starting to play some great football. With other divisions starting to play finals they will be in need of some off field helpers this week to run water and do some odd jobs around the place. Please get down, support and help out as we look to finish the regular season off with a bang.
