Roosters just too good
THE Inglewood Roosters proved too good for the Stanthorpe Gremlins in their round eight clash of the Border Rugby League, defeating the home side 50-10.
Roosters chairman Ryan Donovan said it was an impressive performance considering they only had 14 players to work with.
"It was definitely a challenge but we pushed through and put in a good effort," he said.
"We held Stanthorpe scoreless in the second half."
Gremlins spokesperson Paul Shatte said it was not the best performance the team had ever put in.
"We had a few guys out with injury and some of the younger guys stepped up," he said.
"It is hard to get consistency in a team with people out injured."
But Shatte said it was the team's ball handling skills that let them down.
"It was not a great day for us. There were patches where we looked good, but it is just a matter of hanging on to the ball," he said.
The only other Border Rugby League game played over the weekend was Goondiwindi Blue against Tenterfield Tigers.
Both teams put on a tough fight and the match ended in a 26-all draw.
This Saturday, the Gremlins will go head to head with the Tenterfield Tigers in Tenterfield.
