The Herbert River Crushers redeemed themselves after losing all games against Centrals the previous week.

All four grades came away with wins against the Norths in Townsville. The Under 19s, with only 12 players, showed a determination not seen for a long time to record a resounding 28—16 win.  The Norths had a full complement of players.  Jason Broome was awarded best player but front rower, Clayton Tozer, was also outstanding.

Herbert River Women’s team showed they will be a force to reckon with, notching up a 36—6 win over a gallant Norths’ side. The score at the break was 12—6.  The second half was a complete shutout with 24 unanswered points to the Crushers.  Zeia Artavilla was judged the players’ player.  She had great support from a host of other team members, including Jodie Tilse, Emma Wood, Eryn McCulloch, and Jessica Castellani.

The Reserve Grade saw the Crushers maintain equal second on the ladder with a comprehensive 40—14 victory.  Braydon Gibbs was best on the ground.

After last week’s narrow loss, the A-grade Crushers showed why they will be there come semi-finals time with a 30 to 6 victory during a game that was shortened due to a power failure.  Thirty-three minutes was left on the clock and a big score was likely.

This week, we are at home with league leaders’ Brothers in all grades . The Under 19s kick off at 1:30pm, followed by the women at 3:10pm.  The Reserves play at 4:30pm, with the A-grade blockbuster at 6pm.
