Blue Chip win

BLUE Chip made it back-to-back premierships in Warwick touch with an 8-3 victory in men’s A-grade against Young Guns on Monday night at the touch fields.

Former Toowoomba Clydesdales rugby league player Harold Byrne, of the Blue Chip team, won player of the match. Blue Chip led 3-1 at half-time.

Blue Chip captain Terry Knight said the key to his side’s win was defence.

“We knew Young Guns would be quick in the ruck and made a concentrated area around the ruck area in defence,” Knight said.

“Harold Byrne and Matt Dwan had great games in attack and combined well together.”

In B-grade, new team On Tilt won 17-8 against Chicks and Some.

After eight straight losses early in the season, On Tilt won 10 in a row to set up the premiership victory in B-grade.

Mixed grand finals will be played tomorrow week so as not to clash with the State of Origin rugby league.
