The defending premiers are currently sitting in sixth place, three points behind the Queanbeyan Kangaroos.

Yass Magpies v West Belconnen Warriors

The Yass Magpies host the West Belconnen Warriors in their final match of their centenary season.

After a disappointing season to date, the Magpies have a chance to move off the bottom of the ladder by the season’s end if they are able to claim a win and other results are in their favour.

The West Belconnen Warriors are still holding on to their slim finals chances after claiming consecutive wins.

The side are currently three points behind the Queanbeyan Kangaroos and need the Kangaroos to lose their final two matches if they are to participate in finals football.

The Warriors won the corresponding fixture earlier in the season 30-12.

 

Belconnen United Sharks v Gungahlin Bulls
3pm, Saturday August 10 – O’Connor

The Belconnen United Sharks will be aiming to bounce back from last weekend’s derby defeat as they host the Gungahlin Bulls at O’Connor.

After one win in two seasons, the Sharks will be hoping to claim their sixth win of the 2019 season.

The Gungahlin Bulls will be hoping for an improved performance after they were beaten 54-0 against the Kangaroos last weekend.

The last time these two sides faced each other, the Sharks claimed a 44-28 win.
