Super Weekend Ahead

August 17, 2016

The weekend saw the Emus travel to USQ to take on the uni students in their last remaining round fixtures. It was an all-round dominant display by the Emus, thrashing their opponents in all three grades. C grade kicked off the afternoon with a convincing 41-0 win. Strong performances from Ben Leeson, Aaron Fordham and Jack Webster who all steered the thirsty thirds home.

 

B grade soon followed suit with an impressive 34-0 victory. Despite the considerable score, the trotting ducks still had to prove themselves with most of the match being quite the arm wrestle. The leads stayed calm to ground out a sound win, led by the likes of Scott Richards, Jeremy Beeston and Captain Coach Andrew Macpherson.

 

The stage was set for A grade to complete the clean sweep. They took no time in stamping their dominance racing to a halftime lead of 49-7. The Saints offered little resistance to the Emus, and the second half was played out very similar to the first, with the boys winning 82-19. It was some much needed confidence leading into this weeks semi finals. The usual suspects shone for the Emus with huge games from Jack Cook, Michael Jamieson, Will Gilbert and Ben Hicks.

 

The Emus will host the first "Super Saturday" this weekend the 20th of September. All 3 grades have progressed through to the semi's with C grade finishing as Minor Premiers. Super Saturday brings six action packed games  with B grade playing for their season to stay alive, C grade getting the week off and A grade playing for a spot in the Major Semi Final at Dalby next week.

Be sure to get down to Riddles oval this Saturday for a full day of rugby, and to cheer on the Mighty Emus!!
