Comeback by the eights

IT was a wet and cold Saturday morning at the Wingham Sporting Complex when Wingham Tigers under eights took on the Taree Panthers.

The boys got off to a bad start letting Taree in for two quick tries, but it wasn't long after that and the Tigers kicked into gear scoring five tries in a row.

From then on the boys didn't look back.

Some very strong defence from William Hansen, Jett Gilbert and Lleyton Moore put the Panthers on the back foot.

As soon as the Tigers regained the ball they ran in another five great tries. To Taree's credit they didn't stop trying. Try scores for the Tigers were Lleyton Moore, Jack Baker, Jett Gilbert, Aiden Lewis, Logan Buddle, Tyson Hall, Reuben Ruttley and Jonathan Aiken.

Player of the match was Logan Buddle.
