Semi-Finals Footy

Semi-Finals Footy

By Rod Bloomfield 

 

It was a huge weekend for football in the Central West, as the semi finals got underway for the rugby union and the Group 10 rugby league.

In the rugby union the Orange Emu’s have progressed to the grand final, after a heart stopping game against their close competitors Forbes.

The Emu’s edged to their 20-17 victory, after their skipper Nigel Staniforth landed a killer penalty in the dying minutes of the game, meaning they now get a week off and go straight into the grand final.

In the other semi-final, the Bathurst Bulldogs headed to Dubbo, to take on the Roos and after a close contest came out on top, 17-11 crushing any hopes for the Roos to make it to the top this year.

This means the Bulldogs will now head over to Forbes this weekend, to see who will take on Emus in the grand final.

 

In Group 10 rugby league the Oberon Tigers booked a spot in the grand final after defeating Bathurst Panthers 24 to 12.

In a shock victory for the Tigers, they secured a try in the final minute, which has placed themselves in their first grand final in over 40 years.

The Tigers will now take on Orange CYMS this weekend, in a historic grand final match at Wade Park.
