Biloela Panthers set out to tame Gulls

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Biloela Panthers will be back on the road this weekend when they line up against the Yeppoon Seagulls.

Last Saturday was a day of mixed results as the under-20s came through with a dominant 66-14 victory over Woorabinda Warriors.

Unfortunately the higher senior grades could not go on, with reserve grade losing 56-4 and A-grade losing 32-22.

Club vice-president Karl Stevens said the U20s played extremely well and worked together as a team, which resulted in the win.

Meanwhile he said the reserve grade played well but with a few more training sessions and more players they will improve in the coming weeks.

"A-grade struggle with player numbers with a majority of them being shift workers,” Stevens said.

"The first half was played well but the lack of ball security and being in control of the game by slowing it down to our own speed let us down.”

Stevens still heaped praise on the effort all three grades put in on Saturday.

"All players played well during different aspects of the game,” he said.

"It was a good experience for the younger players to play against Woorabinda at their home turf and seeing a complete different style of footy played.”

The game times this Saturday are: U20s 3.30pm, Biloela Reggies 5pm and A-grade 6.30pm.

It has also been recently announced there will be a Women in League in round six of the Rockhampton Rugby League competition.

All women's games will be held at Browne Park on Sunday, April 28.

Biloela Rugby League is hoping to do something for the Women in League round at our home game the day before against Rockhampton Brothers.

There will also be a calcutta for the home game round on Saturday, April 27, for rugby league fans to enjoy.
