The Whites premier teams have four games to go with two away games and two home games and the first division teams have five.
Old Boys Day turned out to be a real buzz with the bag piper adding the final touch to a day of celebration and some sadness. One highlight was the unveiling of the Col Maxwell Balcony with widow Aileen and son David doing the honours. Col’s long standing friend Brother Bob Wallace was at the opening and said a few words in memory of the club stalwart.
There were mixed results in the games with firsts falling 15-13 at the end, seconds winning 18-7, colts beaten 17-3, first division first grade (thirds) winning 29-26 and first division second grade (fourths) losing 26-7. The veteran’s game was a nine all draw as is the custom.
All grades face Wests away, Easts at home, Royals away and then Uni-Norths at home which is also Ladies Day. Firsts, seconds and colts have a bye in the last round while thirds and fourths have a road trip to Cooma.
Wests are coming off a bye after defeating Royals in their last game. It was only three weeks ago that Queanbeyan defeated the Lions 18-12. It will be another tight affair this Saturday with the home side building some momentum to try and crack the four. Uni-Norths are also finding their feet drawing with Royals at the weekend 10-all.
Easts at home will be played for the Peter Morton Cup and then the home game against Uni-Norths will be for the Pat Matthews Cup.
Last Saturday’s festivities ended with a boom night at The Royal where the old and bold mingled with the young a restless and watched the Wallabies wobble.
