The South Burnett Thrashers rugby union team has recorded back-to-back wins on the road.

Following on from their defeat of the Dalby Wheatman in Round 6, they toppled the USQ Saints at home 26-21 on Saturday afternoon in Toowoomba.

Club president Shane O’Malley said defence won the game for the South Burnett.

“They guys went really well. It was a big win and USQ are very tough at home,” Shane said.

“Our defence definitely won us the game. They pressured us in the last five to 10 minutes but our guys kept them out.

“We are known for our defence and it’s something that we like to take pride in.”

Man of the match was Brett Turner.

Also singled out for praise were Brendon Flood in the front row, Josh Turner and backrower Rob Turner.

The Thrashers have a home game next weekend, hosting Roma at St Mary’s Oval in Kingaroy from 1:30pm on Saturday.

“Roma has had a bit of an indifferent year so far so we are hoping that we can string three wins together in a row, and our first win this year at home,” Shane said.

“And we can do it if we keep doing the little things right.”
