Contest dis­plays skills of over-35s

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

BE­FORE the Spring Cup swung into ac­tion, it was “those on the right side of 35” who took cen­tre stage.

Isis Su­gar­dad­dies and Her­vey Bay teamed up to take on Bund­aberg Rum­ruck­ers in the over-35s “Lolly Cup”.

Great tries, won­der­ful tack­les, amaz­ing hands and tan­ta­lis­ing foot­work were on show as the elder states­men of the rugby com­mu­nity showed off their footy skills.

A spe­cial men­tion has to go to the over-35 play­ers who backed up their ef­forts on the field to take on ref­er­ee­ing and coach­ing dur­ing the main games, and cleaned up at the end.

The ef­forts of the vol­un­teers was hugely ap­pre­ci­ated by the Isis Crush­ers. While a re­sult wasn’t recorded, all play­ers are pumped for the Wide Bay over-35s car­ni­val to be held in Childers on March 14, 2015.
