It will be a battle of David against Goliath as seventh-placed Magpies attempt to defeat the skill and determination of the Lions, who sit at the top of the competition ladder.
The Magpies’ slim finals chances ended last weekend with a narrow 24-22 loss to Kiama and they now have their eyes set on upsetting their local rivals. But a win will be no mean feat.
When the teams met in round eight Gerringong cruised to a 30-10 win. The Lions will also be hungry for a win after their 10-match winning streak was brought to a halt last weekend thanks to the Warilla Gorillas. With two games to play, the Magpies will be giving it all they have to take the Lions down a few pegs and finish the season on a high note.
