Faultless defence

It’s a great result when both league teams travel away and record wins, it's even sweeter when both sides don't concede a point in the process.

That's exactly what the Boorowa League teams did last weekend when they travelled to Gunning. The Rovers didn't get out of second gear as they had a comfortable 40-0 win over the Gunning Roos whilst the League Tag side won over the Gunning Rooettes by 20-0.

In other George Tooke games on the weekend Crookwell 68 hammered ADFA 6, North Canberra 36 beat Harden 16 and UC Grizzlies 24 defeated Boomanulla 22 in a close one. Binalong and Bungendore had byes.

The ladder in the George Tooke Shield now sees:

  • Crookwell 18
  • Boorowa 16
  • Harden 16
  • North Canberra 14
  • UC Grizzlies 13
  • Binalong 13
  • Bungendore 10
  • Boomanulla 8
  • ADFA 8
  • Gunning 4

Meanwhile in the league tag Crookwell 68 beat ADFA 0, Harden 24 beat North Canberra 0 and Boomanulla 32 beat UC Grizzlies 10.

The league tag table now sees:

  • Bungendore 20
  • Boomanulla 18
  • Harden 18
  • Crookwell 16
  • Boorowa 14
  • Binalong 10
  • Gunning 8
  • North Canberra 6
  • UC Grizzlies 6
  • ADFA 4.

With just seven more rounds left, both Boorowa teams are in a good position to push their claims for a finals birth. With the bye this weekend and a certain two points, both teams have six matches left, four of which are at home which will be a massive boost.

The next game is at home on Saturday week against Harden which should see a massive crowd on hand. All four teams are in semi final contention. So local supporters can rest up with the bye and watch a full round of NRL stars for a change this weekend and then head to the Showground the following Saturday.

This week’s matches see ADFA host Binalong, North Canberra at home against Gunning, Boomanulla hosting Crookwell and Bungendore at home against UC Grizzlies. Harden have the bye along with Boorowa.
