Dalby defeat Frillnecks
THE St George Frillnecks have gone down to the Dalby Wheatmen in Dalby at the weekend, losing 38 - 19.
In perfect conditions on a flat-track John Ritter Oval, the Frillnecks defence struggled against a near full-strength Dalby team who were looking to make their mark heading into next week's finals.
While it wasn't the result the Frillnecks were looking for on the road, the final round game of the regular season caps a remarkable 2018 for St George who have kept an unblemished record at home.
Interestingly, the Frillnecks will have their chance to hit back against the Wheatmen next week in the first round of the qualifying finals.
The match, also to be played at John Ritter Oval in Dalby means the Frillnecks will have to take the same roadtrip next week, hoping for better fortunes the second time around.
In a season of highs, the Frillnecks have enjoyed several standout results, including a 31-draw against local rivals and table toppers Goondiwindi, played in Dirranbandi.
An earlier victory against Dalby in round 4 was also a season highlight and a reminder heading into this weekend's crunch game what this St George team is capable of.
