The South Burnett Thrashers put up a strong performance on the road against Rangers on Saturday.
Although ultimately being defeated 24-10, the South Burnett side were in contention for most of the match.
“We went pretty well until the last 10 minutes when we let in a couple of tries,” Club president Shane O’Malley said.
Winger Josh Flood scored both of the Thrashers’ tries.
Next weekend the Thrashers will be playing back at home.
They’ll be facing Toowoomba Bears, the first of three matches in a row they will be playing at St Mary’s Oval.
“They’re always strong and they had a good win this week against the Condamine Cods,” Shane said.
“But if we play the way we did this week, we consider ourselves a pretty good chance.
“It will depend on how we play rather than how they play.”
Shane said he was looking forward to a home match after the last game scheduled to be played in Kingaroy was forfeited by Highfields in Round 12.
