With the completion of Round 5, the four grades of Colts have a very handsome result of 19 wins from 20 games. A full day at Granville Oval last Saturday saw First, Second and Third grades doing battle against Parramatta. Firsts and seconds romped home without points being scored against them. Sadly Third Grade met their betters on the day and suffered their first defeat for the season. Meanwhile Fourth Grade continued their outstanding success with a healthy win against Randwick at Larcomb Oval. The Colts will play Gordon at Home this week, Saturday, 20th May. It should be a great day as theWoodies and their old rivals the Highlanders are leading neck ‘n’ neck in the Colts ClubChampionship. SEE YOU THERE!
