Open space a treat for fullback

CAPELLA fullback Nigel Neame had every winger and outside centre's dream on the weekend, when the Capella Cattle Dogs and Moranbah Bulls clashed in the Central Highlands Rugby Union match at Tieri.

With the Bulls' pack starved of players and a big overlap existing in the backline, young Neame went to town carving up Moranbah's defences and added three tries to the Capella 62-5 win.

Cattle Dogs spokesman Dan Hooper said with a numbers superiority virtually from the first whistle, it just a matter of finding the space and holding onto the ball.

"We had good ball movement and because they had less players we were just getting around them, particularly in the early stages," Hooper said.

"It was a little bit hard on Moranbah, they were pretty stretched."

Capella No. 8 Jessie McMillian was in sensational form for the Dogs, making big yards with every carry. He picked up the man of the match honours.

Capella will face the Rolleston Roos tomorrow in the CH rugby double-header in Emerald, which Hooper sees as by no means an easy undertaking.

"They (Rolleston) have been getting good numbers down there and knowing they upset Moranbah not too long ago, if we're not on our game they could trip us up," he said.

In the first weekend fixture at Morton Park, the Emerald Rams host competition heavyweights the Clermont Bush Pigs at noon.
