Group 11 2017: Team lists and previews for round three

The Group 11 season is only three rounds in but this weekend shapes as a massive one and one which give all clubs, and fans, an idea of where each side stands.

The current top four sides on the ladder play each other, with CYMS and Parkes meeting in Caltex Park while defending premiers Forbes Magpies plays host to Macquarie.

Parkes scored a win at Dubbo last week when defeating Macquarie and that tough kind of hit-out would have pleased captain-coach Dennis Moran in the lead up to the clash with the equally undefeated Fishies.

Forbes is the other undefeated side up to this point and takes on a Raiders side which will debut another exciting talent this weekend.

Here’s all the lineups and previews for this weekend’s action as well as the lineups for the Western Rams’ bumper Country Championships second round match-up with Riverina.
