A tremendous crowd gathered to watch The Patrons Cup played between Stanthorpe Gremlins and the Tenterfield Tigers. The game started at a ferocious pace and early mistakes from brutal defence crept into both teams. Stanthorpe suffered a huge blow with an injury to star forward Kyle Marsh, taken off with a suspected knee injury which may see him sidelined for some time. The sweeping backline of Stanthorpe steered by Jason Wilmot proved to be too quick for the outside backs of Tenterfield. Brad Britton, Tom Cameron and Jason Wilmot were the standouts with Lee Hicks showing incredible pace out wide on many occasions. In the forwards Sam Dowie, Ben Staley and Brendan Perkins worked tirelessly for the 80 minutes with hard middle of the park running setting a platform for the backs to score. For Tenterfield Jim Lonergan and Lake Kelly worked hard all day and Bennet Sutton at times proving more than a hand full with beautiful footwork. As always Brendan Minns the Captain Coach of Tenterfield proved difficult to contain. In the Ladies League Tag Tenterfield showed why they are the red hot team to win the premiership with a polished performance all round. Meg Landers, Sophie Sutcliffe and Sophie Cooper played outstanding and Goergia O`Neill kicked 5 goals for a complete dominance. For Stanthorpe Chelsea Vedalago and Nicola Cobon tried all day with good support from Tara Hills and Brooke Shatte.

A Huge crowd witnessed The Rams second win in a row after defeating Tenterfield the week before. The Rams are becoming s stronger by the weeks and are now a real premiership force. The slick back line Ashley Fleming and Marc McGrady are showing their try scoring ability sharing 5 tries between them. Coedie Tandy and Roger Bartholomew are showing consistency with controlled back line movements leaving their opposition mesmerized at times. Ricahard Taber Wayne Brown were the stand out forwards with hard yards up the middle and gaining good ground laying a foundation for the backs to work with. The ball control of Roger Bartholomew is proving a deciding factor for the Rams with lick passing and long cut out passes finding their mark. In the Ladies League Tag the Ramettes are continuing on the way marching towards a possible Grand Final stint with improvement right across the park. For the Ramettes Patricia McGrady and Tahnee Mikkleson played well out wide with the usual stand out performances from Cyrstal Duroux and Candice Woodbridge bringing stability to the middle of the ruck. For Killarney Shevantai Hippi and Natsha Nolan were the standouts and Killarney are not far from their first win. The Rams play Stanthorpe at Wallangarra in a fortnights time and this will be one crackerjack game with bragging rights up for grabs. The battle of the backlines will be the telling factor for inter town rivalry. Wallangarra continue to be the best supported team in the Border League with huge crowds consistently turning up to support their Rams. After Round 6 Stanthorpe sit outright on the points table with 10 points followed by Tenterfield and Wallangarra with 3 wins a piece.
