COLTS IN ANOTHER CRUCIAL TWILIGHT MATCH
The Western Magpies Colts sit second on the ladder on equal points with the ladder leaders and they have another battle for top spot when they host third placed Wilston Grange at McCarthy Homes Oval, Chelmer on Saturday evening.
The Pies were good in disposing of another finals contender in PBC last week and will be keen to further enhance their premiership credentials against another contender.
The Pies welcome back a couple of speedsters in Sam Mehari and Ritti Batilimoyo and classy midfielder Jacob Sheath returns to bolster the engine room.
With Finn Collison in season best form last week with 7 goals and Cam Ferguson also doing his bit at CHF the Pies have some big forward targets and if the ball hits the ground then Mehari, Lachlan Pearson (4 goals last week) and Queensland Under 17 representatives Bruce Reville and Sean Ryan can be dangerous.
Samson Ryan is a fine ruckman who will give Zane Lovell, Dan Edwards and Sheath plenty of chances to drive the Pies forward and the defence headed by Whitlam Bishop, Chris Moloney and the returning Charlie Thorpe has been rock solid in most matches this year.
The Magpies will be challenged by the Gorillas and there was not much in their first clash this year, so expect a hard fought contest.
