Hammers defeated

THE Gympie Hammers rugby union side has become the latest victim in University’s efforts to secure four premierships in a row.

Playing at Albert Park Saturday, the Hammers went down to the visitors 56-14. Interestingly, the first half score was repeated in the second half.

Despite the loss, Hammers coach David Crowley said this demonstrated the Gympie boys maintained their game.

Gympie’s tries were scored by the forward pack after building up pressure to break through.

Compounding the defeat was the loss of Scott Finlay, who will be out for a few weeks with a strain.

The Hammers return to the drawing board this week to continue working on closing the gap in standard.

“We are very much a country team playing in a city competition, but we are taking steps forward,” Crowley said.
