13’s Rd 5 v Nambucca

Defence was the main focus for the BOWRA 13's this week. We know we can score points, but, as they say, Defence wins matches. The boys have been really improving in recent weeks with their tackling, really working hard for each other. So they wanted to prove a point, and that they did, with a massive 50-0 victory at Hennessy Tape Oval.

After a sluggish start from the Tigers, Nambucca applied some pressure early in the Tigers end of the field. But the boys' defence was strong and gave Nambucca no options, which frustrated them.

The Tigers clicked into gear and went on a rampage to lead 36-0 at halftime. The 2nd half was cut short with 18mins to go. If the Tigers can keep up the strong defence, 'get in there' and work hard for each other, great results will continue.

Highlights of the Game:

• Clay Perkins amazing catch from a Nambucca clearing kick, the ball dropped late at his shins, but Clay took it no problems

• Toby Kinnear's charge from the kickoff which saw him run the length of the field, only to brought down metres from the tryline.

• Tyrell West shift from Lock to halfback and scoring a brilliant try.

• Brady Atkins sneaky try

• Zac Single from the 12's scoring a try from dummy half

• Logan Jones' 24 point haul, with 3 tries and 6/7 goals from all over the field.

A big thankyou to the 12's Zac and Lachie Craggs for backing up.
