Wauchope Blues defeated by Port City Breakers 22-4

PORT City front rower Josh Power led from the front as the Breakers cruised to a 22-4 victory over Wauchope in their Group 3 rugby league under-16 clash at Wauchope on Saturday.

Power scored a rare double while Pat Bailey and Tyrone Flanagan also crossed for tries in the 18-point victory that consolidated their position on top of the table.

Wauchope's only try came via fullback Jeremy Small in a match where they had few answers.

Winger Riley Farrington said it was disappointing to lose a third-straight match, but felt his side had made gradual improvements on last season.

"Compared to last year we're going a bit better, but we're still finding our feet," he said.

Farrington said players were still becoming accustomed to playing four-quarters instead of the traditional two halves.

"With this whole Coronavirus it is what it is and we've got to keep playing the game regardless, but it's not ideal," he said.
