Frillies too good for Cods

SEASON OPENER: Frillies took on the Cods and won.

It has being a long drought for the men in red, but finally the rains poured on Saturday as the Frillies had their first win for the year.

Not since 2015 had the men tasted victory beers and the amber ale certainly flowed well into the night.

Condamine's B-grade side fell short of numbers so in a great show of bush footy spirit Chinchilla's C-grade side filled the numbers and allowed our boys to play their first game of the year.

Enthusiastic from the couple of games against a hard Cunnamulla side, the Frillies pounced just minutes into the first half and scored leaving the crowd to go wild at the bar.

A simple lack of communication let the Cods back in the game, but from there onwards, St George applied pressure in the right areas to quickly run a couple of tries in before half-time.

A quick word at half-time by the coach and the men in red set about taking the game beyond Condamine's reach.

With the score ending at 39-5 and at least one drought broken, the Frillnecks were an exhausted but happily satisfied crew who could happily enjoy the several beverages that were on offer.

Three points was deservedly won by fill in hooker Kody Wilkinson with first five-eighth Lachy Mckecknie winning the two and the old bull Bruce Shelly picking up the one and a meat pie as well.

Next home game will be on May 15 against heavy hitters Gundy, so come down to the Rowden cauldron at 1.30pm to see our men battle to the old foe.
