It’s finals time.

Cargo will host the Woodbridge Cup’s elimination finals on Sunday while the qualifying finals will be at Eugowra on Sunday.

At Cargo, Canowindra takes on Manildra with the winner to advance to the preliminary final at Canowindra next weekend, while the loser will bow out of the title race.

This is expected to be a cracker, between two sides with big packs and elusive backlines.

Manildra captain-coach Simon Osborne will lead from the front while the Tigers have the Bowman boys, Brad and Daniel, rolling forward. Whichever side wins the battle up front will go a long way to claiming the chocolates here.

The Golden Eagles have the benefit of home ground advantage on Sunday against Grenfell, with the victory to progress to the major semi-final against Trundle.

It’s not just first grade of course, with Cargo’s youth league clash against Peak Hill kicking off Saturday’s massive day. Manildra takes on Condobolin in league tag as well, those games start at 12.20pm and 1.40pm, respectively, before the main game at 3pm.

Canowindra takes on Trundle in Sunday’s youth league major semi-final from 11.20am, before Eugowra takes on Grenfell in league tag from 12.40pm. The main game kicks off at 2pm.
