LEETON-WHITTON'S under 13s Junior Crows are gearing up for a big premiership face off with the Narrandera Eagles on Saturday.
The under 13s have fought hard to make the grand final after finishing fourth at the conclusion of the home and away season.

The first final was against a determined Griffith White team in cold and wet conditions.
The under 13s braved the rain, playing some tough footy to come through with a gutsy, five-point victory.
