Gemmies not to be taken lightly

DYSART Bulls came from behind to steal a 32-24 win from the Gemfields Giants at home at the weekend.

With a strong numbers Gemfields looked the better side going into half-time 18-6, with tries to James Chan, Aaron Whelan and Keegan Green.

Dysart finally kicked into gear with a much-improved second-half attitude.

“We took the Gemmies a little bit lightly in the first half,” Dysart coach Andy Brunker said.

“So we went back to basics and made sure we did the simple things right.”

Fullback Hayden Reid was a standout for the Bulls, scoring three tries.

Cameron Fagg was named the Gemfields players’ player.
