Minor Premiership down to the wire

The Massetti Cup rugby league Minor Premiership has come down to the final weekend. The Linwood Keas hold a slender lead at the top of the table, by for-against, over the Northern Bulldogs.  Both teams had wins in the weekend, and so the final round of the regular season, this weekend, will be the decider.

The Northern Bulldogs had a tight first half tussle with the Hornby Panthers, leading 16-12 at the break. But they took a commanding lead in the second half, finishing with a 42-24 win. Atunaisa Takubu finished with a hattrick of tries, Cameron Godfrey and Tom Mansfield picked up pairs each, and Patella Tou one. Izic Placid scored 5 goals.

Unfortunately, the reserves game was called off at halftime due to injury, with the Bulldogs leading 6-4.
