The Canowindra Tigers took on Trundle on the weekend, with the Tigers competing well against one of the leaders of the competition.
The boys went really well and kept hanging in there the whole game. Tim Wythes played well throughout the first half and Nathan
Whatman was strong in the forwards, with his continuous hit ups. It wasn’t long before the Hughes duo came together, with Brydon Hughes offloading to his brother Curtis Hughes to score out wide, 4 metres from the sideline, making the score 8-4 after 31 minutes.
Trundle started to tire, which only saw Canowindra keep firing with Mick Clyburn making some great hit ups. Canowindra were right in this game, coming back to take the lead late in the first half. Brydon Hughes made a great offload to Mick Clyburn to hit the line. Jayden Brown then hit the line hard, shrugging defenders off before doing a dummy kick and sprinting 40 metres down the field. Jayden managed to get past Trundles defence to score under the post, to lead 16-8 at half time.
Tigers led a very exciting first half but Trundle re-grouped and came out stronger in the second half, getting in a quick try 3 minutes in. Canowindra managed to get another try in before being dominated by Trundle with the final score being 30-22.
