COLTS LOOK TO CONSOLIDATE TOP SPOT
The Western Magpies Colts will start a big day of football proceedings against Morningside when they meet the 2017 QAFL Colts Premiers at McCarthy Homes Oval at Chelmer on Saturday morning.
If you are looking for some early morning footy action it is well worth a look to see the Pies Colts in action as they are playing an exciting brand of football and there are a few players with exceptional skills running around.
Morningside are in sixth position on the ladder which is uncharted territory for the usually very successful Panthers at this level and they have struggled this season.
The Magpies will start favourites but any laxity and the visitors will pounce as this would be one of the matches they will have penciled in for a big effort.
Led by midfield workhorse Jacob Sheath and with excitement machines in Bruce Reville, Sam Mehari, Chris Jenkins, Deng Arok and Sean Ryan, the Pies have plenty of pace and skill in the midfield and across half forward.
Cameron Ferguson was on fire up forward last match with 5 goals and Jayden Johnson also knows how to find the goals so the Pies have some goalkicking options up front.
Down back Chris Moloney, Aiden D’Roza and Whitlam Bishop have marshalled a strong defensive unit.
The Pies look strong all over the ground and will be keen to defeat their great rivals and consolidate in the top two on the ladder.
