COLTS NEED TO BOUNCE BACK IN PRELIMINARY FINAL

Andrew Thomson

The Western Magpies Colts will need to bounce back hard if they are to overcome Wilston Grange in the QAFL Preliminary Final at McCarthy Homes Oval at Chelmer on Saturday. The Pies were well beaten last Saturday by Palm Beach-Currumbin but they left the form  they displayed when they defeated Wilston Grange the week before behind and could not re-produce the tough hard football they displayed in the Qualifying Final victory. In the last match against the gorillas the Pies were tough at the contest and played hard no frills football and they will need to bring the same approach to Saturday’s match if they are to win and progress to the Grand Final.

There is one forced change with winger Rory Edwards out with an ankle injury and in comes tall Oscar Murphy and Brodie Gardner will go to the wing.

The Pies will need their midfield to apply the pressure they did when the sides last met and it will be to Cade Scott, Noah Resuggan and Darcy Prest to return to the  the ferocious attack on the ball and the Grange ballcarriers that won them the game 2 weeks ago. 

Lawson Campbell and Whitlam Bishop worked overtime last week in defence and will be hoping the midfield pressure will make it easier for the Pies' defenders.

The Pies key forwards were well held last week but the likes of Jackson Painter and cam Ferguson ned to attack the ball and either mark it or bring it to ground to allow smalls Sean Ryan, Sam Mehari and Jonty Macdougall an opportunity to swoop on the loose ball.

The Pies must get down and dirty and apply the pressure that won them the game a fortnight ago otherwise they will be spectators on Grand Final Day.

The Pies will be boosted by a big home crowd support base and it may be that 23rd man that could get them over the line for another crack at PBC.
