THE Taroom Wan­doan Battlers came close to tak­ing out the 2017 Lind­say Wil­liams Shield, but in the end it was the Jandowae Fish­hooks who walked away with the top hon­ours.

The an­nual Lind­say Wil­liams Shield was played in Wan­doan on Satur­day, and the Battlers won a nail-biter against the Tara Pan­thers to send them into the grand fi­nal.

Bren­dan Dan kicked a penalty goal right on the full time siren to win the game 16-14 for the Battlers. The Battlers tries were scored by Bren­dan Dan, Lachie Men­zies and Graeme Now­ell. Jandowae won the fi­nal against the Battlers 16 nil, how­ever the Battlers cer­tainly made them work for their points. Battlers cap­tain Brian Ar­gus con­grat­u­lated Jandowae on a well-played game, and said thanks had to go to the spon­sors and vol­un­teers who make the Lind­say Wil­liams Shield pos­si­bly each and ev­ery year.

The Taroom Wan­doan Battlers will now host the Terry Charles Me­mo­rial in Taroom on April 1. The other teams that will con­test the Terry Charles Me­mo­rial in­clude the Miles Devils, the Tara Pan­thers and the Chin­chilla Bull­dogs.
