Onto the first Senior Semi Final and the Lake Macquarie Wizards have followed their junior team by qualifying for their second straight Grand Final appearance against a highly spirited and hard fighting Hunter Valley Vipers the Wizards taking it 55 to the Vipers 24. Where in the second Senior Semi Final the Tuggerah Lakes Tribe have made it 3 from 3 against their local rivals the Central Coast Heat to qualify for their first ever Grand final in their debut season. But it didn’t all go to plan from the first event when the Heat got of to a flying start by winning the 8 x 50 Fs Relay in what was the best relay race of the season. But to the Tribe’s credit, they put their heads down and worked hard to over come the confident Heat team. Tribe 47 – Heat 30.
