THE Bowraville Goannas defeated the Hastings Vikings 17-12 last Saturday in the Mid North Coast Rugby Union competition at Port Macquarie.

Bowraville’s Jhye Martin scored the first try in a break-away run as he sprinted half the length of the field to cross the line for the Goannas.

Beau Dean Marks followed up with the second try as he crushed his way over the line from a penalty tap.

Bowraville coach David Foley applauded the high intensity of his team’s first half play.

“On a very windy afternoon down in Port Macquarie, the Goannas came out to a flying first half, scoring all 17 points in the first half.

“The Goannas took their foot off the pedal a little in the second half, which allowed the Vikings to get back in the contest.

“This weekend is the rugby club’s sponsors day, it’s a small way in which the club can show our appreciation for the business who support us.

“The Goannas take on the SCU Marlins at home in Bowraville,” said David.
