Slay­ers off to a tough start

Pilbara News - - Sport - Rob Skin­ner

■ The Samson Slay­ers have en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion and found it tough go­ing as they played last year’s dual premier­ship team, War­riors.

It was not a kind in­duc­tion as War­riors set the bar high for the new team with a 13-2 wel­come. At least the Slay­ers can re­group know­ing they will not have to play top-of-the-ta­ble War­riors again for a while.

All the other matches were close, with Rec­a­holics and Tav­ern­ers both edg­ing 8-7 wins over Pu­n­ish­ers and An­i­mals re­spec­tively.

In the other match, it was Wreck­ers — the only other un­de­feated team af­ter two rounds — who were too good for Mon­grels 9-6, who played their first match of the sea­son.

This week, War­riors and Wreck­ers play and af­ter three weeks there will be only one un­de­feated team.
