Shield at risk

Shield at risk

A downcast Whites’ first grade face the prospect of losing the Peter Morton Shield to Easts for the first time if Queanbeyan cannot find the will to win their last game of the year at Campese Oval.

Easts will be bolstered by the inclusion of lock Blake Enever and winger Toni Pulu while Matt Lucas and Nic Frost are expected to get game time for the Whites.

Jamie Marmont can do it all

The Whites only won 34-26 in the previous game at Griffith with the Beasties looking to end their season with a trophy.

An injury to Jack Gilmour and the inclusion of the two Brumbies will likely mean Jamie Marmont moving to the centre and Mitch Douch to fullback.

Reserve grade are on a bit of a roll and should win their third game in a row which is a complete turnaround of the season. They went eight games before a win so full credit must go to the playing group and the coaches for working and working.

Unfortunately, colts will not get a game as Easts have forfeited and then the last round is a bye so not much football heading into the final series.

The first division (thirds and fourths) will play a six team final series starting next week. On Saturday the opposition is Goulburn who sit second in thirds but are out of the picture in fourths.

It looks like thirds will finish in sixth spot and play Hall next week while fourths should finish in second and play Royals. The venues Saturday July 27th at the White House for all those who are listed on the honour boards at the club.
