COLTS LOOK TO BOUNCE BACK
The Western Magpies Colts will be looking to bounce back to the winners circle when they take on the third placed Broadbeach on Saturday. In a two v three clash the stakes are pretty high with both teams and PBC all on 20 points so for the winner it gives them a real chance to finish the season in the top three and get the double chance.
The Pies lose speedster Bruce Reville to Queensland under 17 duties where he joins Samson and Sean Ryan, both of whom were missed in last wek’s loss.
Coming in to the side to boost the forward line are Finn Collison who has benefitted from a stint in the Reserves and will provide a tall target up forward., and nippy half forward Abdullah Haddad to give the Pies another option up forwad.
Skipper Noah Resuggan moves onto the ball to provide some midfield spark and aide the consistent Jacob Sheath and Dan Edwards. Zane Lovell will also spend more time in the midfield rotations to try to give the Pies first use of the football.
The Pies have not put together a four quarter effort for some time, with one bad quarter costing them dearly in their two losses to PBC and Morningside. The Pies can cement a top three position with a win but the Pies will be challenged and will need four consistent quarters to overcome a dangerous Broadbeach team.
