The Woodbridge Cup finals have been confirmed as an eight-team series and, following the weekend’s penultimate round 13 results, the three Midwest clubs will all be involved.
Oberon won their seventh consecutive game with their win over CSU 34-6, and Orange United defeated Cargo 52-12.
Orange and CSU are in seventh and eighth spots and, despite their lowly positions, are assured of a finals game.
Oberon are the best positioned Midwest side to challenge for a top finals position, and their final premiership match this week against Cargo should result in another win for the Tigers.
Manildra remains undefeated on top of the ladder, but just two points separates the next four teams including Canowindra, Trundle, Oberon and Peak Hill.
In leaguetag CSU reached the half century in their 50-point shut-out of Oberon, and at Orange the Warriors defeated Cargo 46-6. In an eight-team finals series every Midwest leaguetag side will also be assured of a semi-final game.
In the final regular-season games the Tigers will play Cargo at Oberon on Saturday, the match coinciding with the club’s CanAssist charity jersey auction day.
Orange will host CSU at Wade Park.
