Teach­ers dish out a galling les­son

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - TRENT SLAT­TER

TEACH­ERS West’s TDRU pre­mier­ship de­fence kept rolling on when they took down North Ward with an im­pres­sive 48- 0 shutout at War­rina Park on Sat­ur­day.

Fly- half Josh Fletcher scored a hat- trick as Teach­ers laid on eight tries in a clin­i­cal at­tack­ing dis­play just three weeks out from the fi­nals.

Mean­while, Brothers are keep­ing the pres­sure on Teach­ers at the top of the lad­der af­ter tak­ing down last year’s grand fi­nal­ists Bur­dekin 38- 10 in Ayr.

Brothers were too slick in the five- tries- to- two tri­umph as they nailed ev­ery con­ver­sion along with a penalty goal for good mea­sure to stay within one win of the first­placed Bull­dogs.

Goal- kick­ing was also crit­i­cal for Char­ters Tow­ers as they claimed a hard- fought 26- 22 vic­tory over Ross River at Bin­dal Sports Ground.

The Bulls and Red­skins scored four tries apiece, but it was Char­ters Tow­ers fly- half, Sam Knuth, who proved the dif­fer­ence in the end.

He kicked three- from- four to get his side home for their third win of the sea­son.
