WEE WAA Panthers might have ensured Oxley Diggers receive the wooden spoon when they edged to a 50-34 win in yesterday’s Group 4 Cup clash at Scully Park.
Wee Waa converted a 32-16 half-time lead into a 16-point win that might reignite its premiership hopes.
“It was a pretty good win for us,” Wee Waa coach Adrian Sunderland said.
“We had a good 10 minutes heading into halftime.
“We scored some good points and didn’t go to sleep this week in what had been a fairly tight first half.”
Panther lock Daniel Jobson was his side’s best with a strong 80 minutes.
Prop Tim Rickard also starred, especially in the first half while Brenton Cochrane scored three tries.
“Brenton organised the boys well too,” Sunderland said.
“We needed that.
“We just need to get back to training.
“We’re back over here again next week too.”
Oxley Diggers captain-coach Jamie Trindall thought the Panthers were his side’s best chance of an inaugural win.
“We just made a few too many errors,” he said.
“We were in it for a long way today though.”
Athol Munro was the best for the Diggers with a full 80-minute performance.
“Playing the 80 was a massive effort from him,” Trindall said.
