The Gallopers travel to Chipsy Wood Oval this Saturday to take on the Souths Magpies. Injury has forced a change to the backline with veteran winger Isaac Weier returning to the side to replace new recruit Eric Vasukicakau. The Magpies will be keen to protect their nest after a draw and a loss to start their season while the Gallopers will be tested following a comfortable win last week against Bond.
In the forwards coach Anthony Mathison has swapped jerseys between Michael Richards and Mitch King but otherwise keeps an unchanged pack.
The short training week will be a challenge to both teams needing a win to keep in touch with competition leaders University going into the bye this weekend. Lower grades are awaiting confirmation that their games will go ahead after the deluge that cyclone Debbie left behind. Hopefully the grounds will be given the all clear, so the boys get to run out in the blue and green.
Times will be updated on the website once all games are confirmed.
