The week that was…

This weekend the boys take on the Sunshine Coast Falcons in the first round of elimination finals. This game and our result in reaching the finals is a fitting reward for the team, their efforts and the coaching and support staff who have worked so hard since November the 7th. It’s been a long time between drinks for the clubs and we are certainly looking forward to the game this weekend. I’m sure the boys will be up to the challenge as they have been for the last 25 rounds. It’s a young squad as we know, with the majority of the players re-signing for next year already. It’s very encouraging for the immediate future of the Magpies.

Congratulations also to Shane Boyd and the Colts on their season, while not making the finals the boys had an improved season on 2016, with a lot of the team still eligible for colts in 2018. I am sure that they too can go to the next level in 2018. Consistency and patience is the key at this level and hopefully with the experience gained throughout 2017 we will see the rewards of that next year.

Don’t forget, Sunshine Coast 1.30pm on Sunday, we need your support! I know it’s an effort to drive to the Sunshine Coast however the boys would really appreciate the black and white in the crowd, as we know the Sunshine Coast will be a buzz with atmosphere and supporters.

Until next week…
