QUINS 1st Grade play this Saturday for the 2016 DEWAR Shield against traditional rivals the Melbourne Unicorns at 3pm at Box Hill Rugby Club (Cnr of Middleborough and Canterbury Rd Box Hill). Quins finished the year Minor Premiers and have played the Unicorns 3 times this year for 2 wins and a draw - the last game being a tough 20-11 victory in the Major Semi Final.
1st Grade will be joined by 2nds, Colts and the merged women's team on Grand Final day. 2nds finished the year in 3rd place and have had to manage 2 big comeback finals wins to also meet the Unicorns in the Grand Final who they haven't defeated this season.
The Colts were Minor Premiers and like 2nds had a big comeback win against Uni in the Major Semi to win 22-19, who were then surprised by Moorabbin the following week to see our Colts now face off against the Rams in the decider who they have a 2-1 record against for the year.
The Box Hill Quins Raiders, a merged womens team of Box Hill and Quins play in the Grand Final after 2 strong finals wins after finishing the season in 3rd place. They face a big Uni Panthers team who they went 1-1 in the season proper and the girls will have to be at their best on Saturday.
Get down to Box Hill this Saturday and support QUINS in all 4 Grades.
