INNISFAIL Leprechauns hosted Cairns Kangaroos at Callendar Park last Saturday and the A-grade match ended in a 14 – 14 all draw with both teams having to settle for one point each.
The try scorers for Innisfail were Robert Meeks, Daniel Mooka, and Lata Fakalelu, and Aaron Jolley one goal, whilst Tyrese Brown was named Player of the Match.
Innisfail A-grade Coach, Leon Hallie, conceded it was a tough game but was happy with the team’s effort.
“Obviously, we would have liked to get the win and felt we deserved it, but, to Kangaroos’ credit, they played very well and showed great desperation to put themselves back into the game.”
“We could have handled things better at the end and risked the result of a draw for a couple of low percentage plays in an attempt to achieve the win, which put us under extreme, unnecessary pressure.”
“Atherton will be a tough assignment next weekend, despite not having recorded a win to date.”
In Reserve Grade, Innisfail notched up a convincing win against the Kangaroos, with Devante Heron the Player of the Match.
The Under 18 match was a close tussle with Innisfail able to scrape home by two points, and Player of the Match went to Jeramiah Callope.
The Kangaroos had a dominant win over Innisfail in round one, and they prevailed again 22 – 14. Innisfail’s Rayesha Swain took out the Player of the Match award.
