Jack Scott Cup: Semi-Final preview


2019 Finals Hub

And then there were four.

There are no second chances as sudden-death footy gets underway in the Jack Scott Cup.

It’s semi-final time and after 14 rounds of regular season competition, Sydney University, Easts, Western Sydney and Randwick will battle it out for top honours.

There’ll be plenty of Waratah Women in action across both fixtures, along with a contingent of returning Wallaroos following their Test series against New Zealand.

The table-topping Sydney University will be strengthened by the return of Grace Hamilton, Emily Chancellor, Sera Naiqama and Iliseva Batibasaga.

The undefeated Students also feature the likes of Fi Jones, Kirily Laws, Noella Green and Ash Hewson in a squad filled with talent.

They’ll take on Easts for the second time in as many weeks this time at home, under lights on Friday.

The 2018 winners will head to into the fixture heavy favourites following a big win over the Beasties in the final round of the regular season.

In Saturday’s match, second-placed Randwick take on Western Sydney at Coogee. With little to separate the two during the regular season, this shapes as a match that could go either way.

As with Friday’s semi-final, it’s back-to back matches for these sides, with Randwick enjoying a 33-12 win over the Two Blues who will be boosted by the return of Eva Horomia.

She’ll join he likes of Chloe Leaupepe, Alexandra Sulusi, Loretta Mailangi and Ana-Lise Sio for the visitors.

Randwick will welcome back NSW Women’s Rookie of the Year, Arabella MacKenzie and Eva Karpani from national duty.
