The Beaudesert Warriors senior rugby side are showing signs of improvement as the club looks to build into the second half of the season.

The side began the season in disastrous fashion losing 79-5 against local rivals Logan.

But as numbers at training increase and combinations begin to gel, the side is beginning to take the fight to their more credentialed rivals.

The Warriors came within 10 points of Easts at home in round two, were two converted tries short of rugby powerhouse Brothers in an away match in Brisbane and pushed ladder leaders Wynnum to the final whistle at home last week.

Team manager Brendan Magee said several players have stood up and showed their passion and commitment to the team in the early rounds of the season.

“Geoffrey Klease has been a shining light for us so far and the sharp shooter Dan Samphier hasn’t missed a conversion for us all season so we’re starting to see some improvements already after a few rounds,” he said.

“However, there’s always room for more players and we’re still seeking people to come down and play.”

Beaudesert are due to play bottom of the ladder Beenleigh this week but that side has failed to field a team all season.

The next test for the Warriors will come against Med XV at the University of Queensland on June 2.
