Metro League 1 – Old Wesley 19 Blackrock 22
(16th October) Despite three tries by Matthew Bursey, Ian Sheridan and Mark McDonald Old Wesley fell short against Blackrock at a sunny and pleasant Stradbrook. Wesley led twice during the first half 7 nil and then 12-7 but on each occasion Rock neutralised the score to leave it 12 all at half time. Two Blackrock tries in the third quarter dealt a major blow to Wesley’s chances. A try with 10 minutes to go converted by Greg Hawe put a win back in sight but there were no further scores and Old Wesley had to settle for a loser’s bonus point.
