A thrilling Round 14 of the Fortescue Premier Grade is over, and it certainly lived up to the hype! Not only did the wet weather create some harsh conditions it also produced a few upsets.

Associates retained the RugbyWA cup, along with the title of Kings of Broome Street, in a nail-biting five-point victory over Cottesloe. A last-minute try from Tobias Hoskins was too little too late as the reigning Premiers went down 21 - 26.

A well-rested UWA were no match for Wests Scarborough, with the visitors claiming a 32 - 8 victory. Wests Kainoa Gudgeon had a busy day with three conversions and a try.

Perth Bayswater got the best of Nedlands with a three-point victory to tie for second place. Jake Strachan scored a try in the 67th minute of the game, putting the nail in the coffin. Nedlands went down 10 - 3.

Heading into Round 15, UWA remains on top, whilst Nedlands, Wests Scarborough and Perth Bayswater are making a push for a top-two finish. Reigning Premiers Cottesloe are sitting 6th on the table, looking to turn the ship around in Round 15.

Unlike Round 14 of the Fortescue Premier Grade, Round 1 of the FMG Division 2 had no surprises.

Palmyra had a comfortable 15-point win over Kalamunda, with a 29 - 14 victory securing their shared top spot. Palmyra's Rewita Biddle was humming out on the park securing two tries and a couple of conversions.

Wanneroo cruised to a 46-point victory over ARKS at their home deck. Marcus Cutler and Dylan Hutchins both scored two tries for the Roo's, helping them achieve a tied 1st spot on the ladder. ARKS going down 5 - 51.

Southern Lions brought home a 10-point victory over Rockingham, giving them a 5-point buffer over Kalamunda as they race for a top two finish. Rockingham kept the home side scoreless with a two-try lead heading into halftime. The Lions then bounced back in the second half scoring 20 unanswered points.

With only a few rounds left in Fortescue Premier Grade, the competition is heating up in both divisions. The top two spots are still up for grabs with teams fighting tooth and nail for glory. Just like round 14, Round 15 is set to be a ripper.
