    WITH a number of players unavailable for selection when the teams were selected on the Thursday night, it was a worrying thought to supporters on how the reserves would field a competitive team on game day.

    Luckily Euroa took to the field with a full team thanks to the support from the under 18 team who helped with five top up players.
