League fans glad Seagulls and ‘Roos made the trip
CONSIDERING the players from Hervey Bay and Wallaroos didn't want to come to Bundaberg to play their round 16 game in the A-grade competition of the Bundaberg Rugby League they put on a great show.
The 80 minutes of play had everything league fans want - stunning tries, big hits and the occasional heated exchange between players - but the Hervey Bay supporters got the added bonus of seeing their team keep in touch with Brothers at the top of the table with a 34-22 win.
Both camps credited the result to the absence of Wallaroos' enforcer William Jung for the majority of the game after he left the field injured in the first half.
Jung's uncle, Bradley Jung, said he rated the young prop as the best in the league and when he went off the momentum swung."It was a tough two points," an exhausted Bradley Jung said after the game.
"When they lost Jungy (William) it really hurt them after they caught us off guard in the first 20 minutes.
"But the pigs rolled forward and got us going for the backs to finish it off."
