July 15, 2022

Wondai Wolves’ veterans who turned up for the rugby league club’s annual “Old Boys” celebration went home happy last Saturday.

The Wolves fought back in the second half of their A Grade game to score a tight 24-20 win over the Cherbourg Hornets at Wondai Sportsground.

The Wolves were ahead 14-6 at half-time but the Hornets scored three quick tries after the break to take the lead, 20-14.

But with 20 minutes to go, Alex Georgetown converted his own try and levelled the scores at 20-all.

And then 10 minutes later, the Wolves’ Luke Hedges broke the deadlock to score in the corner.

The conversion attempt missed but the Wolves held out Cherbourg for the rest of the game.

Wondai tries were scored by Sonny Weazel (2), Jermaine Harrison, Alex Georgetown and Luke Hedges. Georgetown kicked two goals.

Cherbourg try scorers were Jovan Gyemore (2) and Tyreece Gyemore (2). Joven Gyemore and George Fisher each kicked a conversion.
