Crushers stun coach
BLACKWATER Crushers have bumped up to second place on the ladder, after a decisive 37-28 win over Peak Downs Pirates.
With a bulk of their regular line-out missing from last weekend’s starting-13, Crushers coach John Munns said he was caught a little off-guard with the side’s startling success but thrilled his charges rose to the challenge.
“I’m really proud of them, especially considering how many blokes we had out – it wasn’t the most ideal preparation,” he said.
“I had to bring in a lot of new faces to the side and they showed they could handle it.”
Meanwhile in Middlemount, the home-town Panthers knocked off Emerald Tigers with a comfortable 66-10 win. Luke Wright and Jamie Sullivan starred for the Panthers scoring three tries a piece.
