Noosa demolish Hammers

MINOR premiers Noosa issued a stark reminder of how strong their claim is on the premiership after demolishing the Gympie Hammers at the weekend.

In a total whitewash at Albert Park Saturday afternoon, the Hammers ended their season on a sour note, going down 101-5.

The Hammers were besieged by a chronic player shortage, allowing Noosa to dictate terms.

Despite the bitter ending, Gympie Hammers Rugby Union club president Matt King said the season as a whole was “a big step forward” for the club.

“Overall we had three wins and two losses by three or less points,” he said.

The club is looking at recruiting well during the offseason.
