Wattles warm up for clash with premiers with easy win

RUGBY LEAGUE: Under-18 player Matthew Christensen had a debut dreams are made of when he scored two tries and landed a conversion in the Wattles Warriors A-grade 86-6 win against Pittsworth at Platz Oval on Sunday afternoon.

The Warriors led 52-0 at halftime.

Wattles club president Glyn Rees said Christensen showed he was a player of the future with a polished 80 minutes of footy.

"Fullback Nathan Gaulton was in sensational form scoring three tries, front rower Dale Perkins was also outstanding along with lock Mitch Koina,” Rees said.

The win puts Wattles in equal first place in A grade on six points with Warwick.

Dalby and Valleys are equal third on five points. Goondiwindi, Gatton and Pittsworth are equal fifth on four points.

In reserve grade, Wattles beat Pittsworth 38-0 and are top of the table on eight points.

In the under-18 grade, Pittsworth beat Wattles 56-16.

Warwick plays Gatton on Anzac Day at Cahill Park.

Wattles are away to Valleys on Sunday week in what will be the first game between the two sides since last year's grand final when Valleys won with a try in the final minute of play.
