Mixed round 4 results for Gold Coast teams
GOLD Coast White has moved to the top of the ladder after round 4 of the Cyril Connell Cup.
Their 24-0 win over Norths Devils at Piggabeen last Sunday was their third win from three appearances and boosted their for-and-against enough to see them sit on top of the ladder.
Point-scoring honours were split as five different players crossed for tries while Jacob Fairbank added the extras with the boot.
While it was all smiles for the Gold Coast White Under 16 team, it was a case of mixed results for the remainder of the Gold Coast teams.
Gold Coast Green’s Cyril Connell Cup team lost an extremely close 10-8 game to Souths Logan while Gold Coast White’s Mal Meninga Cup side also went down, 32-16 to Norths Devils.
However, Gold Coast Green did find success in the Meninga Cup in the form of a 24-4 win over the Magpies.
Green produced five different try-scorers and moved into fourth spot on the competition ladder.
With a bye still to come, Green are now just one win away from top spot in Pool A of the Meninga Cup.
Gold Coast Green slip to fifth spot on the Connell Cup ladder with their loss, while White sits in third place on the Meninga Cup.
All the Gold Coast teams will be at home again for round 5. Green will play host to the Ipswich Jets at Pizzey Park, while White will be at Southport’s Owen Park against Easts Tigers.
In other Connell and Meninga news; Victorian Rugby League Under 18s picked up their first win of the season with an impressive 40-12 over the Wynnum Manly Seagulls. The victory was truly a team affair – with seven individual try scorers running in for the visiting side.
This week, the southerners will have the week off with the bye; while the Seagulls will travel to Civic Park to take on the Souths Logan Magpies who are also coming off a loss.
In the Cyril Connell Cup, the Sunshine Coast continue to set the pace in Pool B – scoring a 38-10 win over the Clydesdales at Gold Park last weekend.
The Falcons also have the bye this weekend and will automatically go to 10 competition points, while the Toowoomba team will go searching for their first win when they host the Northern Pride this Sunday.
