The colts cemented their position in the four with a 20-7 win over Wests who were equal on the ladder.Fullback Josh Wells was the show stopper until he was KO’d and had to leave the field.He saved a couple of tries as the last defender and then set the team alight with one of his 60 metre runs before unloading to Aiden Agnew for the try.
Sean Debenham’s team put it together in the second half with a couple of well worked tries.
Captain Ben Darmody was the rock while the forward pack took a no-nonsense approach to the agitated Wests heavies.
In third grade centre Aiden Kenworthy put on one of his master class performances. He has freakish skills scoring two himself and setting up another couple. With his move to Melbourne at the end of the year he could well be turning out for Richmond. There were plenty of good players in the 67-20 win. Captain Daniel Naef, Jack Edwards, Tron Sullivan, Riley Ahern, Tony Fifita and of course Kenworthy.
Fourths started before the frost lifted and a few had to make their own way from Mooseheads. Wests meanwhile were hand picking the best out of other grades to ensure they had at least one team in the finals. So the scoreline was predictable. The positives included the play of fullback Michael Edwards.He is a big lad and has taken some time to realise his abilities. Braeden smith has become something of a Mr. Fixit and plays where asked and always plays well. The ongoing contribution of prop Tangi Maine does not go unnoticed.
