Lawrence takes up main whistle

GOOD to see Justin Lawrence refereeing his first game in A-grade on the weekend for the Pirates-Springsure game.

It was a change from the juniors and he will be good for the A-grade competition.

We need more retired players to continue in the game by doing the middle man’s job. Justin was an old Central player in Blackwater.

The fields in Tieri have changed direction and do not help the spectators at all when watching the games. Seems like you are in the nose-bleed section of the grandstand watching the game. Can someone move the fields back so they can have one of the best viewing fields in Central Queensland again?

It was cold on the field and Ernie Travers who was coaching the Mountain Men said it wasn’t as cold as Springsure.

The experienced player in the Pirates side was too good and they ran away with it. Kurt Sullivan playing centre scored three tries.

The Middlemount Panthers and Emerald Cowboys games were evenly matched and either side looked like winning at any stage but Cowboys kept fighting back.

Crushers were too good for the Bears at Bear Park. After a spray from coach John Munns at half-time Crushers came out and left the Bears scoreless in the second half to win by a good margin. Mathew Daly was back on the field for the Crushers after a lengthy absence.

This weekend’s game between the two second-placed teams Crushers and Tieri should be a thriller at Crushers Park on Saturday.

One side will advance in to second spot outright.

Middlemount host the Tigers who are struggling for numbers.
