Man of match proud

Central and North Burnett Times - - RUGBY LEAGUE GRAND FINAL 2014 -

CEN­TRAL Bur­nett Rugby League grand fi­nal man of the match and Glad­i­a­tors cap­tain Jay­bin Pearce was proud of his team’s ef­fort in the game.

“What can I say? We played the game to win and we just didn’t get there,” Pearce said.

Af­ter go­ing down to Mun­dub­bera 29–26 in the grand fi­nal on Satur­day, Pearce was bit­terly dis­ap­pointed at not get­ting a win.

“I thought we had the ad­van­tage in the wet con­di­tions and I think I was right,” Pearce said.

“If the game had gone for just an­other 10 min­utes I think our young guns would have run them down.

“At the time I scored my sec­ond try I thought we would catch them.”

Since com­ing into the fi­nal se­ries, the Gayn­dah Glad­i­a­tors have per­formed well at the right end of the sea­son.
