Tuesday, 14th May, 2013
The Outback Rugby League season started in the district last weekend and was deemed a success by its president, Dave Gallagher.
“I think the popularity is rising, it showed through a fairly good crowd at every location,” Mr Gallagher said.
The Geebungs went up against the Saints only to draw 24 points each.
Kerry King, Jeffrey Webster, Rickie Whyman and Clint Squire each scored a try for the Geebungs. Willy Webster scored three goals and Robert Young scored one goal.
For the Saints, Mitch McKenny and Matt Kiddle had two tries a piece.
Matt Kiddle then followed up with another two goals with Ash Tucker also scoring two goals.
The Menindee Wedge-Tail Eagles proved too good for the Parntu Warriors winning 56 to 28.
Menindee tries went to Daryl Morris (2), Colin Clark (2), Clint Ferguson, Jason Johnson, Shaun Kemp, Lawrence Philp, Ricky Waters and Cameron Philp.
Curtis Smith went above and beyond with seven goals and one goal went to Daryl Morris.
Colin Whyman, Moe Hokai, Brady Hall, Darren Whyman and Barry Hunter scored tries for the Parntu Warriors and Colin Whyman scored four goals.
The last game was the Wilcannia Boomerangs against the Menindee Yabbies. Wilcannia Boomerangs came away with the win, scoring 54 to 18.
“I think it is excellent, every part of the Broken Hill region, including Menindee and Wilcannia offered a game of rugby,” Mr Gallagher said.
“It goes back to the days when they had it regularly.”
Mr Gallagher said he was impressed by the number of players.
“There were enough to field six sides, it was also good for the juniors,” he said.
“We could tell the crowd enjoyed the greatest game of all.”
Mr Gallagher said he hoped the support would continue into the season.
