Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

The Mar­garet River Grop­ers rugby team de­feated the Bun­bury Bulls 65-10 at a home game on Satur­day.

The Grop­ers man­aged to pull to­gether a strong squad de­spite sev­eral ex­clu­sions be­fore kick-off.

Bun­bury turned up with 16 for­wards, with many fill­ing in among the back line.

The Bulls be­gan to dom­i­nate pe­ri­ods of play but de­cided to go for penalty shots at goal rather than tries.

At half-time the score was 15-10 to the Grop­ers.

The team poured on the points in the sec­ond half, se­cur­ing their sixth-straight mi­nor premier­ship and home grand fi­nal for Au­gust 25.
