TRL wrap round four


A SENSE of relief is in the air over Pittsworth after they claimed their first win of the TRL season with a 40-12 victory over Goondiwindi at Gibson Oval last night.

A grinding start to the game saw both teams trade blows early, as the visitors held a 12-6 lead after 15 minutes.

Tries to Keith Mackenzie and Dominic Briggs in the closing stages of the half pushed the lead out to 14.

Pittsworth struck twice to open the second half, giving them an unassailable 30-6 lead, as they prepare to face Brothers next weekend.

AN UNRELENTING display of attacking football has seen Highfields come away with a big 90-6 win over Souths at Kuhls Rd last night.

Campbell Stewart led the way with four tries, with Aaron Hooper and Dale Madden picking up doubles.

Long-time Souths representative Heath Farlow had his first game as player-coach of the Tigers, filling the void left by Leo Dynevor.

GATTON 22 lost to WARWICK 38

WARWICK has continued their impressive start to the year, picking up a vital 38-22 win over Gatton at Cahill Park.

The win keeps the Cowboys in the top part of the ladder on six points alongside Highfields, Valleys and Wattles, with a four-point gap back to sixth.

An explosive second half from Warwick saw them pile on five unanswered tries in the space of 26 minutes to give them their second successive win, as young winger Declan McLoughlin picked up a hat-trick.

Warwick drew first blood, with Fuimaono using his size and strength to power over the line in the 17th minute, before Gatton hit back just minutes later through Lewis Williams.

Off the next set of six, Billy Jackwitz crossed for the Hawks, as the home side opened up a six-point lead approaching half-time.

Craig Donn, standing in for the injured Mitch Watson, helped the Cowboys remain within striking distance, crossing before the break to keep the score at 12-10 in favour of Gatton.

Clifford Brown gifted the Hawks a dream start to the half, however the joy was short-lived, as tries to Ben Sullivan and Josh Cruice saw Warwick lead 22-18 with 25 minutes to play.

The rampage continued, with McLoughlin picking up the first of his two tries in the space of five minutes to seal the win.

GATTON 22 (Billy Jackwitz 2, Lewis Williams, Clifford Brown tries; Luke Nolan 2, Hayden Lipp goals) lost to WARWICK 38 (Declan McLoughlin 3, Joe Fuimaono, Craig Donn, Ben Sullivan, Josh Cruice tries, Mick Bloomfield 5 goals)

DALBY 58 defeated OAKEY 32

THE premiership defence of the Dalby Diehards has taken another positive step with a 58-32 win over Oakey in Dalby.

A hot start saw the favourites race out to a 18-0 lead inside 13 minutes, and they went on with the job in the first half to lead 40-10 at the break.

The Bears didn't shirk the task, scoring the first two tries in the second half, before Steve Franciscus wrestled the momentum back to the home side.

The win is the Diehard's fourth for the season, as they look to remain unbeaten when taking on Wattles next weekend.
