Goondiwindi came out on top … but the Thrashers were by no means disgraced in their home game on Saturday afternoon
An Emu takes flight … the South Burnett defence kept Goondiwindi busy

June 24, 2012

The South Burnett Thrashers played only their second home game of the season when they faced the Goondiwindi Emus on Saturday afternoon in Kingaroy.

The team had asked for “old boys” to come along to the game, which was played at St Mary’s Catholic College Oval, and the added crowd support seemed to help.

Although they were defeated, the Thrashers bounced back from last week’s 54-point drubbing by Dalby – and their 68-point loss against Goondiwindi in April – to hold the Emus to a much more respectable margin.

Goondiwindi were victors 34-10.

Next week, the Thrashers come up against the Condamine Cods who defeated them 38-12 in Round 3 of the Downs Rugby Union B Grade competition.
