27 Jul Hope and prayer
All Queanbeyan can do is hope and pray that Gungahlin does not win with a bonus point against University-Norths at Nicholls on Saturday. If they do then the first grade is in Monday madness mood.
To make things a little more interesting and to generate conspiracy theories-the Owls’ coaches Doc and Sam French are both former coaches at the Whites.
Thirds face the same exit with Hall likely to jump them after the Bushrangers won a protest again the Eagles to allow them to move up the ladder and place the Whites in a must win against Goulburn.
Reserves and colts are set for the major semi-finals with fourths more than likely for the minors next weekend.
It has to be noted that the Whites this season faced the Brisbane/ Pacifics side three times along with the Gungahlin City Eagles. The Whites have one team in 30,000, the Eagles have one team in 300,000.
For the Whites Luke Cochrane has done a magnificent job in organizing and fielding both thirds and fourths.
Nearly 50 players from 2017 have retired, moved on or have longer term injuries but the club has still remained highly competitive.
In 2017, first grade won 8 and lost 6 and in 2018 they won 6, lost 7 and drawn one. Reserve grade has won 13 and lost one( won 10 lost 4), colts have won nine, lost four and drawn one(won 10 lost 4).
Presentation night is coming up with further information on the web page whites rugby.
