Following a some-what upset defeat in a virtual Quarter Final to the Melbourne Axemen last weekend, Perth Gold have had to regroup ready to take on the impressive ACT and Southern NSW Vikings in a sudden death Semi Final.
Co-Vice Captain Kris Martinick and Tim Davies have stayed in Perth to make way for returning Force Academy Members, Will Brock and James Dougal.
The Vikings have been in ominous form so far in their debut campaign with victories over Queensland Country Heelers (50-12), NSW Country Cockatoos (12-9) and Darwin Mosquitoes (65-15).
This is a huge match for the Gold, pre season many punters tip for the Final, and will take every ounce of their collective skills to see us able to defend our title next weekend against the victors of Melbourne Axemen v NSW Country Cockatoos.
Good luck fellas and GO THE GOLD!!!
