All games in the colts competition will be played tomorrow night at three grounds across the South West.

In the second year of the special fixture, Sir Stewart Bovell Park, Hands Oval and Brunswick Oval will host the five games under lights.

The league had a similar fixture last season, which coincides with music festival Groovin’ the Moo.

At Brunswick Oval, the third-placed Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault will host the undefeated Bunbury from 6pm.

In Busselton, Augusta-Margaret River will tackle Carey Park from 5.50pm, with the latter looking for their first win of the season.

Then at 7.50pm, Busselton will host the bottom-placed Donnybrook.

The Magpies have lost just the one game for the season, while the Dons are yet to get off the mark in 2017.

At Hands Oval, the Collie Eagles and Eaton Boomers will clash from 5.50pm.

Then the undefeated South Bunbury will take on the Harvey Bulls from 7.50pm under lights.

SWFL general manager John Vidos said if spectators purchased game tickets on Friday night, they would be able to attend Sunday’s corresponding reserves, women’s and league fixtures for free.

“This is a great way of exhibiting the colts competition,” he said.

“Most of the kids also want to attend Groovin’ the Moo.”
