The Burrangong Bears fought hard against the Canowindra Tigers last weekend but injuries to key players left them easy prey for a hungry Tigers team.
Captain/Coach Matt Longhurst said the Bears played one man short for most of the game and fought manfully in defence.
“The Tigers had a great deal of time with a one-man overlap and our defence was great considering most of their tries were scored out wide off a couple of kicks,” he said. “A huge thanks to Mick Hudson and to Harry Warrick who was outstanding in his first game for the Bears.”
Try to Ben Logue Conversion by Brett Campbell. Best and Fairest – Ben Logue (1), Brad Ashton (2) and Jeremy Martin (3), Players player – Ben Wallwork.
The Tigers defeated the Bears 42-6.
The League Tag Bears lost a tight and entertaining game to the Tigers 28-20.
