Grop­ers fall to Bun­bury

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Time Out Sport -

Mar­garet River Grop­ers suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son against Bun­bury in the South West rugby com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day.

The Grop­ers trav­elled to Bun­bury for the match, with the hosts putting on a strong per­for­mance in the first half to fin­ish ahead 20-10.

Bun­bury played to their strengths in the for­ward-ori­ented game, dom­i­nat­ing pos­ses­sions and ter­ri­to­ries in the first half to put down two tries and ratchet up the pres­sure on the vis­it­ing Grop­ers.

Mar­garet River man­aged to push back in the sec­ond half and recorded two tries for the game, but the de­fen­sive work early on took its toll and an­other try from Bun­bury sealed the deal for the home side.

The com­pe­ti­tion has a bye this weekend, but the Grop­ers have two more games left in the sea­son, tak­ing on an equally strong Duns­bor­ough-Bus­sel­ton Dung­bee­tles at home on Satur­day, Au­gust 5.

The clash be­tween the top-two teams on the lad­der will be held at 3pm at the main oval.
