Teams face off in front of big crowd

Pilbara News - - Sport - Re­becca Parish

Marie Mar­land Oval played host to the Hed­land Hawks, Kar­ratha Roost­ers and the Kar­ratha Storm for a rugby round robin at the week­end, with some big tack­les and stel­lar skills on dis­play.

De­spite two teams pulling out, it didn’t stop a big crowd from head­ing down to the field to watch the three sides com­pete.

In an al­tered sched­ule, the three teams played two games each with 20 min­utes halves. In game one, the Hawks beat the Roost­ers, 2416, in game two the Roost­ers beat the Storm, 26-18, and in game three the Hawks beat Storm, 26-6. The fi­nal game of the night was a feisty one, with both sides fir­ing up with brag­ging rights on the line.

Event or­gan­iser and ref­eree Luke Fit­tock said he was re­ally happy with the turnout and said he hoped sim­i­lar crowds would turn out for homes games.
