Junior Reps Head Into Final Round
By Jack Books and Jake Bull
The St George Illawarra Dragons Junior Representative teams will conclude their final round of the Junior Representative season on Saturday, April 11.
The Illawarra Steelers Junior Representative teams will hit the road to face the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at Forestville Oval, Forestville.
After both suffering losses against the Canberra Raiders last week, the Harold Matthews (U16) and SG Ball (U18), will be looking to bounce back in what could be their last games of the season.
The Harold Matthews team head into the final round still with a mathematical chance, as they sit in tenth position, but would need a very large win over the Sea Eagles on the weekend, who sit in seventh and are almost guaranteed a finals spot.
In the SG Ball, after starting the season near the top of the table, they have slid out of the top eight into ninth.
With five teams sitting on 10 points, including Illawarra and Manly, and only four finals spots remaining, it promises to be an exciting finish to the Junior Representative season.
The Harold Matthews team is first onto the field at 12.00pm before the SG Ball commences at 1.30pm.
The St George Dragons Junior Representative teams will additionally travel to face the Canberra Raiders at Canberra Raiders at Seiffert Oval, Queanbeyan.
The Harold Matthews team (U16) will be looking to end their campaign on a high after mathematically not being able to qualify for the Finals Series.
The SG Ball team (U18) will be looking for a win or favourable results elsewhere if they are to reach the Finals Series themselves.
The Harold Matthews team is first onto the field at 12.30pm before the SG Ball commences at 2.00pm.
