’Pies off to fly­ing start

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

GIN Gin Hawks en­joyed an open­ing round victory when the North­ern Dis­tricts Rugby League sea­son kicked off with a block­buster at Miriam Vale.

The Hawks beat an un­der­manned Avon­dale out­fit 44-30 while the Mag­pies im­pressed home fans with an 88-0 thump­ing of Agnes Wa­ter.

NDRL’s Robert Red­fern said Agnes Wa­ter had per­formed well at times but had lacked the size to com­pete with Miriam Vale’s mon­ster pack.

The pro­gram also fea­tured the In­trust Su­per Cup round two clash be­tween CQ Capras and Souths Lo­gan with the Mag­pies scor­ing an im­pres­sive 48-12 win.

Bur­nett Heads Cut­ters played a trial game against a Tan­num Sands com­pos­ite side that in­cluded sev­eral rep­re­sen­ta­tive play­ers.

The Cut­ters were thumped 52-0 but the side will only im­prove as the sea­son con­tin­ues. Fix­tures :Gin Gin Hawks v Agnes Wa­ter Mar­lins;

Avon­dale Tigers v Bur­nett Heads;

Miriam Vale Mag­pies v South Kolan Sharks.

All games at South Kolan.
