Thirds In Match of the Day at Allen Park

Late changes to the team in the death match at the Boneyard.

In an unusual turn of events, there has been a few late changes to the run on side for Saturday's team for the crunch, 9 v 10, match against Perth-Bayswater.

Nick Flynn has been shifted from half to the wing, where he has been excelling the last few weeks.
Disappointed to be move away from so close to the forwards, he is vowing to get busy on Saturday; "I'd do anything to be like those guys in the tight five, full credit to them. They are the real heroes."
Michael Burkitt has been ruled out with a large trailer sprain and Sam Forewood has slotted into the centres with Rett Ngu from the side of the scrum because he has a top knot.

Baysie come in with some form having run Nedlands close 12 -45 last week and will provide a stern test for the in form boys from Swanbourne. A win will set up a run at the top 8 for the local heroes.

Lachie Strain is looking to repeat his man of the match heroics from last week by leading from the front.
"I just got caught in the mid-field as I was trying to get out to the wing and I had to make some tackles. T-bag just kept getting in my way. I'll know better this week and stay near the reserves bench so Watty better be ready to go on."

Troy Hindmarsh will run out in his milestone 196th game this week. He says "Every game is a milestone when you have calves like mine. I will savour every moment as I watch the boys go about their work."

We leave it to captain David Binns to sum up the feeling in the camp, especially in the backs "It's going to be a real arm wrestle out there this week, a game of physical chess but without rules, chess pieces and Russians, or a chess board - I do believe that I could be a Grand Master this weekend. The Gary Kasparov of Allen Park. As usual I love the forwards and as a special treat will buy them beer all afternoon. Maybe even for the Irish test that is being shown on the big screen after the games."

Threes kick off on the main oval at 12.30pm
