THE Queanbeyan Tigers will wrap up their 2013 NEAFL campaign against Hills Eagles at Dairy Farmers Park on Saturday.
The Tigers will be playing for nothing more than pride in what is effectively a dead rubber with both sides out of finals contention.
While Queanbeyan’s finals’ hopes have already been dashed, last year’s Eastern Conference champions will be able to take plenty of confidence into tomorrow’s clash.
The Tigers turned back the clock last weekend, producing some of last year’s premiership winning form to knock of the high flying Belconnen Magpies 15.17 (107) to 12.10 (82).
Full forward James Kavanagh kicked five goals for Queanbeyan in the win.
Top sides to clash
THE Monaro Panthers will take on the undefeated Belconnen this Sunday in what is shaping up as an ACT Women’s Premier League grand final preview.
After a rocky month, the Panthers have returned to top form in recent times.
The Premier League newcomers dispatched ANU WFC 4-0 last weekend but will still head into Sunday’s clash as underdogs against a dominant Belconnen outfit.
The north-Canberra club has maintained a perfect record this season and Monaro will no doubt be desperate to register a confidence boosting win against the ladder leaders heading into next month’s finals.
Plenty to play for
THEY’RE out of contention themselves but the Monaro Panthers can still play a major role in shaping the ACT Premier League finals series when they take on Belconnen at McKellar Park on Sunday.
The Panthers showed they’ve still got plenty of fight left in them heading toward the end of a long season with a 3-2 victory over finals hopefuls Cooma last weekend.
And Monaro could throw a spanner in the works of another title contender with victory over the Blue Devils.
The Panthers handed Belconnen a 4-1 defeat earlier this season before Belconnen returned the favour with a 3-2 victory in round 11.
