13's v Woolgoolga

The Tigers were on the road to take on the Woolgoolga Seahorses at their home ground, on a cold rainy Saturday morning. It's always a tough road trip, as the boys have discovered in recent seasons, so hard in fact, it almost feels the Seahorses have an extra player on the field at times.

After back to back penalties and 'six again call', it was Woolgoolga who crossed first to lead 6-0. This was the only time that Woolgoolga would trouble the score board, as the Tigers defence became more like a brick wall, led by forwards Tyrell West, Himayet Robinson Toby Kinnear, Jack Hillery, Alex Howard and David Styles.

Two long range tries and 1 off a Simon Walker inside pass saw five-eighth Logan Jones grab a first half hatrick, to lead 16-6 at halftime. Woolgoolga threw everything at the Tigers outside backs Steve Borg, Keith Donovan, Logan Jones and Clay Perkins, but couldn't get any results.

Braydon Gill who was dangerous in attack and busy in defence produced one of his trademark try saving tackles. Tyrell West was in for a well deserved try off a Simon Walker bomb, after some great lead up work from Charley Townley down the sideline. Another well deserved tryscorer was Toby Kinnear who went on a 'Marty Taupau like' barnstorming run to cross the line for his 1st ever try!! Fulltime score read 26-6.

This was another great performance by the 13's in tough conditions, which is really pleasing for the coaching staff. With more work at training, let's hope this continues.

BOWRA 26(L. Jones 3, T. West, T. Kinnear tries. S. Walkers 3 goals. Def Woolgoolga 6.
