06 Jul Whites in danger
A 38-12 loss to the NRC has left the Whites facing a third place finish to the season and a sudden death game against Royals. Queanbeyan must beat Wests and then University in the next weeks to guarantee the second place. Wests have the Whites then a bye.
The inclusion of Jarrod Butler and Frank Feinafo along with Rodney Iona meant the Whites faced a very dangerous attacking outfit. The NRC team is not yet complete with Ah Wong still to join in.
The whites copped two yellow cards and the score line ticked over. Guess who the referee was?
No 8 Tom Darmody played to a standstill and the front row was outstanding but the side rarely threatened in attack.
The reserves showed their mettle in winning 30-14 with a patched up team. The side has now beaten the NRC reserves three times this season. Captain Ryan Jones, coach Sam French and half Ben Pattenden were best.
The spare parts thirds jumped to a 13-0 lead before Tuggers pulled the non-contestable scrum and won 13-29. The ten big blokes in red and white on the sideline were all half backs. Five eighth Fraser Kemp was best with forwards Tim Godfrey, Andrew Lindsay and Jackson Tahapehi all impressive.
The colts were no-go and lost 45-5 with winger Sam McGlone , lock Euan MacKillop and fullback Jeremy Taylor earning best and fairest points.
Queanbeyan meet Wests at Jamison on Saturday.
