COLTS IN GRAND FINAL REMATCH
The Western Magpies Colts face a tough match when they take on last year’s Grand Final protagonists Palm Beach-Currumbin in a top five clash. PBC are undefeated and the young Pies will be up for the challenge.
The Pies welcome young rover Luke Beetham to the side and from all reports he is a classy player. Lachlan Pearson returns to the last line of defence.
The Pies will be without good players in Jonty MacDougall, who is promoted to the Reserves, while centreman Noah Resuggan and utility Darcy Prest
Rory Edwards moves to the centre and will team up with Jacob Aurisch and ruckman Lachlan Davies to win the midfield battles.
Up forward Cam Ferguson and Cooper Crowell have been in good form and Whitlam Bishop, Tom Evans and Lawson Campbell anchor the backline.
Like the Seniors and Reserves, the Colts will need to bring their very best to match and then overcome the undefeated lions on their home turf, but they looked to be returning to their best form a fortnight ago and will be primed for a big team performance.
