In the Woodbridge Cup’s match of the round the fourth-placed Grenfell Goannas travelled to Peak Hill to take on the fifth-placed Roosters.

It was always going to be close, but as it was they couldn’t be separated, playing out a 36-36 draw.

Sunday’s results went as expected with Manildra defeating Eugowra 40-18, ending the Eagles’ finals chances. Trundle was far too strong for Canowindra, scoring a resounding 40-14 win.

The final match of the round was at Young, where the Cargo Blue Heelers were way too good for Burrangong.

The Heelers ran out 68-18 winners, but it was a win that came at a cost, with big prop Matt Taylor fracturing his ankle and being ruled out for the rest of the season.

Condobolin, after a bye, is left lamenting close losses, even if the Rams defeat Manildra next week they will miss the finals.

In Youth League Trundle, the competition leaders, defeated Canowindra 26-8 while Eugowra forfeited to Manildra. 

In a full League tag round, undefeated competition leaders Grenfell Goannettes won 58-0 over Peak Hill Chicks, Cargo defeated Burrangong 52-0, Trundle won 28-0 over Canowindra and Eugowra won 26-10 in a close game over Manildra.

The venues for the semi-finals will be set down in the coming week.
