Preview:

Last week our Div 2 side fought back strongly after a slow start, but had too much ground to make up. But it was a strong finish as our Bombers ran out the game, holding the minor premiers scoreless in the final quarter.

This week it’s a re-match against St George. We’ve already beaten them in the finals this year, but need to do it again. There’s a spot on the Grand Final on the line.

It’s been a good season by our Fourths in 2019. But we’re not ready to finish yet. It will take a solid effort over four quarters; but the ability is there to win through and be a part of this division’s showcase event on Sunday week.

Now is the time to work hard. A spot in the Grand Final is at stake.
