Beaudesert Kingfishers too good for West Inala Panthers on Saturday

The Beaudesert Kingfishers senior men claimed another victory at RS Willis Park on Saturday night with a 58-6 win against West Inala.

Mununjali Aunties Geraldine Page and Delores Paulson attended the game, where they called for a minute's silence before play for players, supporters and visitors to pay their respects to beloved elder Kevin Page, who passed away on Saturday.

Coach Mick Harkin said slow starts had become habit for the senior men's side and continued against the West Inala Panthers with mistakes and penalties allowing the opposition to open the scoring with a try right beside the post.

"But that would be the last time they bothered the scorers as the kingies responded with a 58 point to run over the Panthers," Harkin said.

"Aaron Davies started the onslaught, barging over under the post.

"This clicked the boys into action, allowing them to show their attacking skills as tries began to flow as their confidence on the field grew.

"Man of the match Hobie Pegg led the way scoring a hat trick, with Jasp Leach, Kyle Barnes, Bailey Mcplaike, Michael Fairhead and Nick Harkin also crossing for tries.

"Jayden Fairhead added to the scoring, with a play that started well inside our half and saw the ball go through almost 10 sets of hands with great passing and support shown by the boys to finish with try right in front of the bird cage, accompanied by a roar from the home crowd.

A total of 10 tries were scored in total with only one missed conversion between Jason Smith and Nick Harkin.

"This win again was built on a brutal defensive line, with tackles from the forward pack destroying the opposition," Harkin said.

"Our next game is against local rival the Mustangs who are above us on the ladder. The game will be at 2.30pm next Saturday at Mustang Oval, Kenny Road Chambers Flats.
