Teams give their all

THE fields had changed direction again in Tieri and all for the better. It was good viewing for the public on Saturday night.

To have the union game and league games there together was a winner for the Tieri township.

The league now moves to Dysart and the Bulls will face the Pirates who crushed the Crushers in a one-way game. The Pirates’ halves dominated throughout the game and the forwards from Tieri have grown another leg. The scoring didn’t start until about the 10-minute mark. After a minor altercation, the Pirates took control and used their player rotation well to start scoring tries.

It’ll be a big game for the Bulls and Pirates to see who’ll host the grand final.

Can the Cowboys continue their winning ways? I was surprised to see them with 19 players on the weekend and the game was in the balance close to the end and the Cowboys ran out victors.

Every team tells me not to pick them this weekend as it is a mocker on them.

Cowboys are on a high after their good win. They will be up against the Crushers who now have to go home and rebuild for this weekend. It is always a hard task but all the sides are still in it. Good to see Mitchell Power back in the Crushers team after an injury spell.

Junior grand finals are on this weekend at Springsure. To have their team in the under-12s in the first game will be good and their normal cheering township will be there in strength.

For Middlemount to have two sides in the grand final in under-14s and 16s is good work by their teams, especially considering the under-16s have only had 12 players all year and for the last final. Good effort young fellas.

Good luck to all teams on the weekend and get to the junior finals and enjoy your footy.
