Blighty outplayed

- By Bryanna Rossow

The Blighty Seniors struggled on Saturday against Katunga’s ‘slick outfit’.

With a final score of 195 to 5, the Redeyes were unable to make a play against Katunga who proved to be too strong at their home ground.

“They (Katunga) outplayed us on Saturday,” said coaching staff member Brett Napier.

“They worked really well on the field, had good spread and worked the ball nicely, all things we lacked.

“The guys were a bit flat, but we had a hard night at training this week to make up for it, so they are feeling better heading into the next game.”

While the team may not have performed, Napier said there were certainly some stand out players for the day.

“Luke Hay and John Lawton had a good game, they were definitely our best players.

“Mitch Ross had his first game for the club in the ruck and played really well.”

The reserves side also had a tough game, with Katunga finishing with 134 to Blighty with just 9 points.

Napier said the both sides are getting back to the basics at training and are looking forward to taking on Picola United in two weeks, after this weekend’s general bye.
