Octopuses’ consistent performers, captain-coach David Barrett and Chris Mumme were crucial in the squad’s 13-5 win over Raiders in the final preliminary round of the Wagga a-grade competition at Oasis on Tuesday.
Octopuses will be the team to beat at finals; it has been several rounds since they have been met with serious resistance.
They finish the competition with the highest points-for tally (184) and lowest points-against tally (100).
Dolphins will meet Octopuses in the major semi-final next week after a comfortable 14-9 win over the development Dolphins on Tuesday.
Dolphins’ James O’Brien was best in pool, followed by Kolby McMahon from the development team.
