Tigers far too good for Rovers

The undefeated Bungendore Tigers continued on their winning way proving too strong for the Boorowa Rovers. The final score favoured Bungendore 38-4 but didn’t really reflect the game.

It was only in the final quarter of the match when the Tigers began to pull away from a very plucky Rovers team who just couldn’t penetrate some tough defence despite many promising raids.

Bungendore got away to a flying start leading 10-0 after just 10 minutes.

The Rovers launched a counter attack and very nearly crossed just three minutes later. A fiery blow up saw a Tigers player sent to the sin-bin.

Boorowa were quick to capitalise with Kris halls crossing wide out after some good lead up work. With the score at 10-4 Boorowa continued to mount several attacking raids but the Tigers defence held firm. Bungendore then went further aheadjust before halftime to make the score 16-4 at the break.

The second half,Bungendore scoredquickly after just three minutes to extend the lead to 22-4. The match began to get heated as both forward packs tried to dominate with some good hits. The Rovers tried hard to penetrate the Bungendore defensive line and probably deserved more points. It was Bungendore however, that raced in three tries in the final fifteen minutes to blow the score out somewhat to 38-4.

Despite the score, it was one of Boorowa’s better displays with some promising signs in attack and some willing defence. Best for Boorowa was Mick Hinds who picked up three points and was creative in attack all day. Kris Halls was also impressive picking up two points and Mr Consistency, Matt Batt got one point. Players player was Mick Hinds whilst the Fabstock award went to Justin Corkery.

In other games on the weekend, Boomanulla won a tight game 28-20 over Braidwood whilst Harden hammered the gunning Roos 52-10 and the North Canberra 54 soundly beat Crookwell 18.

This weekend’s other games see Boomanulla hosting Harden, Bungendore play Gunning and ADFA face a huge task against North Canberra. Crookwell has the bye.

The Rovers have just one home game left for the season on Saturday week when they host ADFA. One date supporters should also note is September 10 when the Ex-services club will host the Rovers presentation night. Meanwhile, this weekend get along and support the lads at Braidwood on Saturday at 2.30 pm. Then on Saturday night the boys will be back at the Courthouse to hopefully celebrate a win.
