COLTS LOOK TO BOUNCE BACK
After getting a rude shock last Saturday, the Western Magpies Colts will be looking to bounce back hard in their clash with Sandgate on Saturday.
No doubt the Pies will be on-song from the first bounce and coach Dallas Gallagher will have stressed the importance of a strong showing this week
The Colts welcome back Jonty MacDougall and Lawson Campbell who both performed exceptionally well in the Reserves and Cooper Crowell to the forward line where he booted 4 goals against Wilston Grange. Darcy Prest also returns from academy duties and can play anywhere on the ground, but will likely boost the midfield brigade.
The backline looks solid with Tom Evans moving back there and Campbell to the back flank next to Whitlam Bishop.
Noah Resuggan leads a solid midfield who will want to get on top early after getting shown up last week by a strong Broadbeach side.
Up forward MacDougall and Sam Mehari are capable of creating mayhem with their pace and agility and big Cam Ferguson will be the main target.
The Pies will be keen to put the last fortnight behind them and return to the winners list but must be fully prepared to foil any ambush the Hawks may have planned for them.
With academy duties coming to a close this week, there could be an influx of more Magpies back into the mix and the boys will want to put their best foot forward to retain their spots.
