THE TULLY Tigers hosted the Cairns Brothers in three grades at the Tully Showgrounds last Saturday in their final home game of the season.
It was also the annual Allan Reis and Cain Banu Memorial Round which raised over $2,000 for the Tully Hospital Foundation through a raffle and sweets’ stall.
The Cairns Brothers dominated a depleted Tully’s A-Grade side and went into the half-time break with a solid 20 – 0 lead over Tully. Another try was added by the Cairns Brothers, before Phil Nona scored Tully’s first and only try for the match.
In the second half, the Cairns Brothers continued to pile on the points and ran away with a convincing 50 – 4 victory and, with only two losses in the season, have firmly secured a spot in the semi-finals.
Members of the Reis and Banu families presented the jerseys to players before each match.
They also presented Man of the Match trophies and shirts to the Tully Tigers players Jesse Barra (A-Grade), Thomas Banu (Reserve Grade) and Darian Burton (Under 18).
A special presentation of flowers was made on behalf of the Cairns Brothers by Joshua Chadwick and Luke Frumento to Suzette Reis and Essay Banu in honour of their lost family members.
The Tully Tigers went down to the Cairns Brothers in the Reserve Grade game 34 – 6, whilst the Under 18 team was also defeated by the Cairns Brothers 36 – 28.
Innisfail Leprechauns suffered a shock upset after they were defeated by Atherton in all three grades at Mungalli Creek Dairy Stadium in Atherton last Saturday.
Both A-grade teams were vying for the annual John Cole Toyota Mayor’s Challenge Trophy which will be retained in Atherton for another year.
The Mayor’s Challenge has been contested 20 times, and Innisfail have brought home the trophy twelve times and Atherton eight.
