Community Season Update
As we near finals in the upcoming weeks, the Community competition heats up as the teams push to secure their spot in the finals.
Let’s see how the teams are faring as we enter the final stages of the regular season.
Community Men’s Division 1
ADFA is the team to beat this season, remaining undefeated and holding the top spot on the ladder.
ANU’s dominant victory over Ainslie on Saturday brings them level on points with ADFA. The Griffins aim to push for top spot as the season draws to a close.
Batemans Bay and Googong find themselves battling to maintain their position in the top four. Both teams currently hold a 6-4 record, while Woden is hot on their heels with a 5-5 record, posing a threat to sneak into the top four.
Woden’s narrow losses to the top four teams, coupled with their recent victory over ANU in round 11, shows their potential as strong contenders for a finals spot.
Community Women’s Division 1
The competition is incredibly tight, with just a four-point gap separating first and third. Molonglo, Batemans Bay, and Googong are fiercely competing for top spot as we approach finals.
After a slow start to the season, Batemans Bay have been in unstoppable form, winning seven in a row, and emerging as strong contenders for the flag.
ANU’s strong win over Ainslie on Saturday further solidified their fourth position, putting them six points ahead of Woden. The tension mounts as both teams fight for their finals hopes.
Community Men’s Division 2
Following two consecutive losses including a massive 73-9 loss to Googong, ANU regained confidence and further solidified their top spot on the ladder with a strong win over Ainslie on Saturday.
Woden enter the back end of the season with confidence, currently sitting in second with a 7-3 record. Their dominant round 11 win over ANU adds to their momentum and positions them well as we approach finals.
ADFA and Googong are in a tight race to hold onto their top four spots, both with 24 points, while Molonglo closely trails behind. Googong’s dominant win over ANU in round 12 proves they have what it takes to go all the way.
Molonglo needs to continue their winning streak to have a shot at the finals, as their recent victories over Woden and Ainslie have given them momentum.
Community Men’s Division 3
Yass and Murrumbateman, both with a 10-1 record, fiercely compete for top spot, with Murrumbateman’s only loss being a narrow defeat against Yass.
Despite sitting 12 points behind in third spot, Goulburn pose a genuine threat in the finals as they are the only team to have defeated Yass this season.
The Southern Cats focus on solidifying their top four spot, with Cootamundra closely behind. Both teams have had a season of ups and downs so far, and they must string together wins to secure a spot in the finals.
