THE Eagles' colts side will take on Southern Storm in the SFL preliminary final in a night game this Saturday.
The colts booked a berth in the preliminary final after going down to Lindisfarne in the second semi-final at Anzac Park yesterday. Lindisfarne goes through to the grand final and will take on the winner of the preliminary final.
Saturday's start time of 4.45pm at North Hobart has drawn some criticism on social media. Instead of having the first match of the day, the colts will play last, with the women's match at 10am, the reserves at 11.50am and the senior match at 2pm.
Lindisfarne 4.5 7.7 12.9 13.14 (92)
New Norfolk 2.0 5.0 7.2 7.4 (46)
