Crushers bounce back

IT took more than 40 minutes before Blackwater Crushers found their feet to draw clear of their eight-all half-time scoreline with Clermont Bears.

The Crushers eventually finished comfortable 34-12 winners.

Blackwater coach John Munns said they were off their game in the first half and felt they were still on the backfoot after a frustrating few weeks spent on the sideline.

“We were a bit rusty at the start - just not completing our sets and there didn’t seem to be any purpose in defence,” Munns said.

“The bye rounds and time we had off I think took a fair bit of momentum off us.”

Crushers’ latest recruit Liam Anelzack picked up two tries for Blackwater, as did the safe hands of Kent Booker.
