Country finals continue around Queensland


Last week regional Rugby competitions in Queensland were treated to exciting finals across the state. While some areas are done and dusted, for others the action is only heating up. 

Here is a rundown of this weekend’s action:   

Central Highlands

The Emerald Rams will host the Clermont Bushpigs at Morten Park Emerald this Saturday. The Rams are chasing their fourth consecutive title and look impressive remaining undefeated in 2017. Their opponents Clermont are hungry for some revenge from last year’s grand-final defeat at the hands of the Rams. Clermont showed their hunger last weekend scoring on the siren to snatch victory from the jaws the defeat. Emerald will be treated to exciting Rugby this weekend, with festivities beginning at 3:00pm. 

Townsville 

Teachers West will try and claim their third straight premiership when they face Brothers Townsville at Mike Carney Toyota Park on Saturday. Both sides played a nail-bitting major semi-final just two weeks ago, where Brothers claimed a one point victory. The game wasn’t without drama though, Teachers West goal kicker Colby Mason hit the goalpost on a penalty that would have put Teachers West in the lead during the closing stages of the game. A full day of grand-finals await Townsville with all grades, womens, and U16s all playing from 10:55am. 


Mackay   

On Saturday, the Whitsunday Raiders host the Kuttabul Camelboks in the preliminary final at Whitsunday Sports Park. The Raiders have won all three meetings of the two sides in 2017, but the Camelboks have been within five points in two of their encounters. The two teams will play off for the final spot in the grand-final, where Mackay City awaits the winner. Saturday shapes up as an afternoon of exciting finals Rugby, with kick-off at 4pm
