Golden Eagles Dark Horses For League Title
With wins over Grenfell, Peak Hill and Cargo, the Eugowra Golden Eagles were brave in their 18-10 loss to second place Manildra Rhinos last weekend in Eugowra.
Despite the loss, Eugowra sit in fifth in the Woodbridge Cup in what is a blue-chip year for the club on 13 points behind Molong Bulls on 14 in fourth then a trio of teams out in front including Canowindra (25), Ma-nildra (23) and Trundle (21). Eugowra and Molong do have a bye owing with Eugowra having a weekend off this weekend but other immediate contenders for the finals below them on the ladder Peak Hill (12) and Cargo (10) also have a scheduled bye weekend approaching.
Eugowra will tackle Condo after the bye before a season-defining home game awaits against Molong in three weeks.
Magpies Plucked By Tigers
At the start of the season both sides fought out a gallant draw but this time it would be different when the Forbes Magpies took on the Nyngan Tigers. In a game that was largely one way traffic, an under-manned Magpies side fought hard but inevitably lost 34-10.
Forbes is running out of time if they have ambitions of playing finals football.
