The Stanthorpe Gremlins suffered another loss in the second round of the Border Rugby League at the weekend.

Saturday's game saw the Stanthorpe team travel to Tenterfield in their first clash with the Tigers for this season.

The Tenterfield Tigers defeated the Gremlins 38-18.

Gremnlins spokesman Paul Shatte said the young team had been gelling together well despite the loss.

"They're all young fellas so it wasn't an easy game,” Shatte said.

"But they've really gelled together and they put on a pretty good show.”

Shatte said a few slip-ups in defence let the team down, but Stanthorpe dug deep for a strong effort and a promising sign for the future of the club.

He said there had been a strong turnout for training in recent weeks.

"It was a big improvement from last week against Inglewood,” he said.

"They are are the minor premiers and they've got an experienced outfit.

He said it was good to see a few Stanthorpe supporters travel for the match despite cold and drizzly conditions.

"We'd like to thank the one that did come up and support us,” he said.

Shatte hoped this Saturday's home game against the Killarney Cutters would be a good one, but some injuries might overshadow the match.

"We've got a couple of guys carrying injuries,” he said. He said brothers Zach and Lachlan Hendry were both sporting injuries, while Lachlan Flemming copped a knee to the back in Saturday's match.

Shatte said players who stood out on Saturday included Scott Johns, Michael Parnell and captain-coach Gary Skimmings.

Also on Saturday, Inglewood defeated Killarney 50-22.

Stanthorpe will play Killarney at Sullivan Oval from 2.30pm this Saturday.
