Final Position: 4th
Season Results: 12 Wins, 5 Losses, 13 Bonus Points
Flying the flag in the colts finals for the 3rd consecutive season. 2nd Colts have quietly gone about building their season under the radar, despite being the only team to win on my then one occasion.
Undefeated after 7 rounds, they set themselves up well for a finals appearance as Head Coach Ben Molloy looks to take his team 2 games further than 2018.
“This team is a top 2 team without a doubt and learning how to remain mentally strong when under opposition pressure is key to going deep in the finals series.”
“We had some minor hiccups throughout the year against a strong Gordon outfit and uncharacteristic losses to Easts and Manly, each has been good learning opportunities for the boys and I have no doubt we’re ready for the challenge over the next couple of weeks.”
With the top 6 having been set now for a number of weeks, 2nd colts have been eyeing off this game against Sydney University and kick off the clubs finals campaign at the seaside Coogee Oval on Saturday morning.
“There has been a number of players who have really stood out this season, the returning colts from last year. Maclean Dombkins, Liam Janson, Pat McCormack have been great in building on last season and have helped bring the new colts on board this year. New colts Angus Collison, Tom Nicholl and Sifa Amone Tooks have all been in terrific form this season and continue to grow as players”.
Round 6, Northern Suburbs 33 defeated Sydney University 17
Round 17, Northern Suburbs 22 defeated by Sydney University 31
Player to Watch:
Dylan Saunders is an impressive young tighthead prop. Still in year 12 at Windsor State High School, Dylan was recently the NSW 1 tighthead and selected for the Australian Barbarians.
Last week the front row really went to work and helped set a strong platform in their win over Randwick.
