Junior Reps At The Home Stretch

The St George Illawarra Dragons respective Junior Representative teams will continue their run towards the end of the season this weekend.

The Illawarra Steelers Junior Representative sides will return home this weekend, after away games at Redfern, with games against Western Sydney Academy of Sport (WSAS) at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.

With mixed results for Harold Matthews (U16s) and SG Ball (U18s), the home side will be hoping to improve with only four rounds remaining.

Harold Matthews are in 11th place, only two points outside the top 8, while the SG Ball squad is going well as they sit in 3rd place and with every chance to challenge for the minor premiership.

Western Sydney Academy, who is placed in 10th and 13th place respectively, will offer a good challenge for Illawarra and with the closeness of both competitions, neither side can afford a loss this weekend.

SG Ball head coach Shane Millard is pleased with his team’s performance in the last couple of weeks, including the fact that they have only lost one game this season.

“At the start of the season, all I asked was the boys put in the effort and even though we aren’t the biggest team in the comp, our fitness and hard work on the training paddock is helping us be competitive.”

“There was some very good things from last week (against South Sydney) and that will certainly give us confidence going into this week’s game.”

“If we do the little things and complete our sets, I’m sure we should be every chance to get the win this weekend.”

The St George Junior Representative sides will in action against  the Canberra Raiders at Seiffert Oval, Canberra that same day.
