Sydney University’s 67-point win over Redland at Scottsdale Park on Saturday moved them to third on a crowded NEAFL competition ladder.
With three rounds of the competition proper to be played, the Students joined Southport and Canberra on 40 points. But Southport’s better for and against record has them ahead of Canberra and the Students, with Sydney (36), Aspley (36) and Brisbane (34) making up the top six.
Brisbane and Sydney University have a bye round this weekend. Brisbane’s final two matches will be against eighth placed Gold Coast and the seventh placed Giants, while Sydney University will meet Canberra and ninth placed Northern Territory Thunder.
The minor premiership is definitely up for grabs.
Sydney University had 13 goal scorers in their 117-50 win over Redland, with Jack Hiscox (3), Damien Boney (2) and William Sierakowsk (2) leading the way.
Meanwhile, Sydney University has secured a finals berth in the Sydney Men’s Premier competition.
