Depleted Team Falls in Finals
A strong 2017 season came to a somewhat premature end for the Murray Bushrangers on Sunday.
The illness and injury riddled Bushrangers led the Sandringham Dragons by 7 points at quarter time in their elimination final at Ballarat’s Mars Stadium, but couldn’t maintain their dominance as Sandringham ran out winners by 51 points.
However, 7 players from the Bushies will be involved in the upcoming Young Guns, Futures and All Stars representative games, while others may become available for their local teams.
Coach Leon Higgins praised the players and their families for their extraordinary commitment to the season, which will officially come to a close with the club’s Best and Fairest presentation on October 8.
