Bowra v Nambucca Heads 30th May

Bowra had the tough assignment of taking on the combined Nambucca/Bellingen side, the opposition was noticeably bigger across the field at the coin toss.

In the first half our boys gave it everything and had the more fancied opponents flustered. The Nambucca big boys didn't like getting tackled hard and Bowra's scrambling defence was everywhere. If not for a dubious try after the half time bell the scores would have been level.

In the second half a few silly mistakes led to lack of possession and spending the whole half trapped down our end. With a bit more improvement we can match these top sides.

Tristan Walker had a massive game with some crunching front on defence as well as some superb cover defence. He was well supported by Jack Peachman, Luke Leonard and Brandon Willer.

Full time score was Bowra 12- Nambucca 34. Try scorers were Brandon Willer and Cody Tyreman.
