Rangers no luck in navigating their way through Rowden Park

RUGBY UNION: The St George Frillnecks have belted the Toowoomba Rangers proving they will be contenders when it comes to finals for the Western Downs competition.

The Frillnecks XV took to the field with a strong line up and were keen to make up for having three weeks off due to the Dalby Wheatmen forfeiting two weeks ago.

Coach Angus Jamieson said strong ball carries by the forwards and energetic ball running by the slick footed backs saw the Frillies quickly cross the white line early.

"Nic Perkins was the first to chalk up his brace of tries for the match,” Jamieson said.

"Clem Brosnan led from the front with solid pick and drives and Cameron Knights caught the defence off guard with a quick tap and ran for 40 unexpected meters.

"Points then started to flow for the Frillnecks with Ollie Armstrong, Cameron Knights, Josh Cameron and Nic Perkins all crossing for meat pies.”

When the final whistle blew, it was the Frillies coming off victorious 32-0.
