Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local - Fraser Smith

KALA­MUNDA downed Perth Bayswa­ter 36-14 in the Premier Grade Match of the Round in Duns­bor­ough at the week­end in what was a fan­tas­tic fin­ish to the Duns­bor­ough Dung­bee­tles’ 21st an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.

The match was a com­pe­ti­tion first with the Premier Grade and Re­serve Grade trav­el­ling to the South West

Kala­munda came out of the blocks hard in the open­ing min­utes, earn­ing a num­ber of penal­ties to put Perth Bayswa­ter on the back foot. The Bulls quickly made the most of their dan­ger­ous at­tack­ing po­si­tion with fly­half Hamish Buick swing­ing a cut-out pass to find Sioeli Tupou in space for the try. Buick con­verted to give Kala­munda a 7-0 lead. Dom­i­nat­ing pos­ses­sion and ter­ri­tory Kala­munda set up camp in the Bayswa­ter half and good vi­sion from Buick once again al­lowed winger Kiti Nairube to cruise down the right wing for Kala­munda’s sec­ond try in the first 10 min­utes.

A penalty for in­cor­rect en­try al­lowed Buick to kick for the cor­ner and the Kala­munda for­ward pack did the rest, ex­e­cut­ing a strong rolling maul from just five me­tres out for Taine Oak­ley to score.

Buick con­verted to push the mar­gin out to 19points af­ter 20 min­utes.

A penalty at the break­down against the Bulls handed Perth Bayswa­ter their first real at­tack­ing chance and they made no mis­take, with hooker Ben Buist crash­ing over af­ter an at­tack­ing li­ne­out.

Dylan Par­sons slot­ted the con­ver­sion, bring­ing the score to 19-7.

Buick had no trou­ble adding ex­tras to hand the Bulls a 31-14 lead.

Sens­ing the chance to put the game be­yond doubt, the Bulls played through their for­wards to march Perth Bayswa­ter back even­tu­ally find­ing the try line through re­place­ment front rower, Tawhiri Re­wha.

Fight­ing right to the death Perth Bayswa­ter went hunt­ing for a con­so­la­tion try but it wasn’t to be with the Bulls’ de­fence hold­ing strong as Kala­munda ran out de­serv­ing 22-point vic­tors.
