September 1 2019
It was a mixed bag of action this weekend as the finals started to heat up across the many sports that Deniliquin has a team in.
In Rugby Union, the Drovers played the Griffith Blacks in the Grand Final and unfortunately for the Drovers, Griffith were just too strong as their defense repelled several try scoring attempts and were deserving 36 to 17 winners.
The Drovers had a great season and there is no doubt that every fan is proud of their efforts this year.
In Soccer, the Wanderers won their Preliminary Final today against Hanwood 5-3 and they will be playing Yoogali SC next week in the Grand Final and as you can see in the Wanderers Facebook group, they are very excited about it.
Below are the Football and Netball results separated into the categories of Rams Football, Rovers Football, Rams Netball and Rovers Netball.
EF is Elimination Final, SF is Semi Final and QF is Qualifying Final.
Qualifying Final winners go through to Preliminary Final, any side that lost a QF play in a Semi Final.
Semi Final winners play in Preliminary Final and any side that lost a SF are unfortunately done for the season.
Those who will play in a Preliminary Final (next week Rovers, two weeks Rams) will see winners to the Grand Final and the defeated will unfortunately see their season end.

The season is over for the Rams Reserves but 2019 was a wonderful season as it has to be remembered that the side had a 1-17 record in 2018 compared to 8-10 this year so congratulations to the reserves on a wonderful season.
Rams Netballers only had two sides out of seven go through to the Preliminary Final but the good news is that the other five sides live to fight another day next week in Semi Final action.
The Rovers Footballers are marching on to the Preliminary Finals with the two sides who played this weekend making it through to join the two who had won their Qualifying Final last week.
The Rovers Netball sides have six sides through to the Preliminary Final and regardless of the results at the end of the season, all of the teams have had a great season.
We’ll be back next week with a new edition of Sports Talk.
