Roos crack ton against Tigers

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THE Monto Roos’ rugby league ti­tle de­fence ap­peared to be in safe hands when the team gave the Mun­dub­bera Tigers a les­son in football.

Both teams were evenly matched with hard slog from the two sides try­ing to find holes in each other’s de­fences.

Monto fi­nally found the way to the line when Shane Carter put DamienWil­son into a gap to score in the cor­ner for the open­ing try.

From here Monto kept Mun­dub­bera in their own half but the vis­i­tors man­aged to push Monto back to their half.

The Roos found a break in the Tigers’ line and Blake Popp scored a length of the field try.

Monto was now look­ing very strong in at­tack with two quick tries to Daniel Nan­car­row and Pat Bow­man set­ting the scene for the re­main­der of the clash.

Monto punched plenty of holes in the Tigers’ de­fence.

Lau­rie Lee bagged two four point­ers to bring the half-time score to 58-0.

The sec­ond half started with the Roos de­ter­mined to drive the nail in the cof­fin of their op­po­nents with tries to Luke Harm, Dean McCul­loch and DamienWil­son.

In the 63rd minute Toetu’u Fakaanga scored a con­so­la­tion try for the vis­i­tors but it was too late with the home team run­ning out win­ners 102-4.
