Mixed results for Colts teams
The Southern Colts teams had a win and a loss in their semi-finals on Saturday.
In the Premier grade the Magpie Colts were beaten by Dunedin Makos 13-3, in wet and muddy conditions at Bathgate no 1. The Dunedin forwards had the edge and made fewer errors across the park in the difficult conditions. It has been a very good season for the Magpies but a second loss in the semi-finals in the past 2 years will be disappointing and the team of now experienced players will look to break into the Premier side next year. University Blue beat Alhambra Union in the other semi.
In the Junior Colts grade the Ravens beat University Gold 25-12 to advance to the final against Dunedin Hammerheads, and will be the hot favourite after not losing a game all year. Keep an eye on the draw this week to get out and support the Ravens team.
