Western AFL WSSA Results
Western finished a respectable 11th with two wins at the WSSA AFL NSW state championships in Byron Bay last week. A tight win in the opening round against South West was followed by four defeats until the Red Dirt Cup against Barrier saw Western run out 6.5.41 to 3.3.21 in a dour affair. Well done to the Forbes boys who represented us well!
