INNISFAIL Leprechauns were at home against the winless Atherton Roosters last Saturday at Callendar Park where the home side prevailed 28 – 8 and denied the Roosters their first win of the season.
Aaron Jolley scored two tries for Innisfail and Andrew Garrett, Cedrick Valentine and Yaza Stephen chipped in with one try apiece whilst Jolley slotted three goals and Daniel Mooka one.
Yaza Stephen was named Player of the Match.
After the match, Innisfail’s A-grade coach Leon Hallie’s expressed his frustration as to no real game flow, which meant the team couldn’t really put together any passages of play for an extended period of time.
“With the crack down on high shots, and the amount of penalties it didn’t allow us to achieve what we wanted out of the game.”
“Effort is always there from the boys however, discipline is letting us down at this stage of the season which will have to be tidied up if we are to be a contender this year.”
“I was happy with Jayden Epong and Owen Williams who made their A grade debuts, whilst Elia Mooka had a solid start after his return from injury.”
Atherton proved too strong for the home side in the Under 18 game with a 26 – 16 win. One of Innisfail’s Under 16 players Luke Magnanini was rewarded with the Player of the Match award.
At full time in Reserve grade, the scoreboard was 30 – 16 in favour of Innisfail, and Matthew Barham was the Player of the Match.
Innisfail Leps Open Women’s team registered a convincing 16 – 4 victory over Atherton, with Melissa Banu being named Player of the Match.
