Wheatmen sides play with attacking flair
TWO of Dalby's three teenage Wheatmen sides were in competition last Sunday, with mixed results.
The under-13 side faced the Toowoomba Bears and put on a brilliant display of attacking rugby.
The Wheatmen scored multiple tries to run away victorious 74-0.
Coach Scott Cosgrove said the performance set a benchmark for the year.
"The very steamy conditions didn't slow the boys down at all, with our skipper Lyhkan King-Togia leading the way with five tries,” Cosgrove said.
"All of the forwards worked hard to provide good clean ball for the backs, who capitalised wonderfully.
"We encourage supporters to get down to John Ritter Oval in Dalby and see this awesome team in full flight.”
The Wheatmen under-15 side had a tough encounter against a strong Goondiwindi opposition.
Many under-14 players stepped up to the challenge this week, and battled hard in defeat.
Cosgrove said it was a spirited performance by the team, and they have plenty to improve on for next week.
"It was a tough game against our old foes. Although our boys kept working hard, Goondiwindi took the win 38-12,” he said.
