Gallery: Whites set up Royals showdown

THE Queanbeyan Whites will meet Royals in next weekend's John I Dent Cup preliminary-final after crushing Wests 45-18 at Viking Park on Sunday.

Boosted by the late inclusion of Brumbies playmaker Robbie Coleman just days after his return from the World Club Sevens tournament in London, the Whites were never troubled in the runaway victory. 

Showing no ill-effect from his recent travels, Coleman opened the scoring for the Whites inside the first 10 minutes and from there it was all one way traffic. 

Tries to Tom Darmody, HP Momsen and a second to Coleman saw the Whites hold a 28-6 lead at the main break.

And when Queanbeyan was first to score in the second half, the result was effectively put beyond doubt with half an hour still to play. 

The Whites will now meet Royals at Viking Park next Saturday for the chance to take on Tuggeranong in the grand final. 

In other results, Queanbeyan moved directly through to the grand final in second grade, third grade and fourth grade after major semi-final victories. 

Colts and the Whites women however, have been forced into elimination finals this weekend after suffering surprise semi-final defeats.
