Bears sink Cods to maintain promising season start
TOOWOOMBA Bears capitalised on their promising start to the Risdon Cup season with a valuable round-three win at Heritage Oval yesterday.
Bears completed successive competition wins with a 31-13 victory over previously unbeaten Condamine.
The Cods began the year with wins over USQ and Rangers before striking the hungry Bears who have made their own good start to 2016.
After going down narrowly to premiers Goondiwindi at Riddles Oval in week one, the Bears got on the board with a 50-0 round-two win over Roma.
Saturday’s win sees the Bears leapfrog Condamine on the premiership table into the top three.
At the other end of the table USQ’s tought start to the season continued at John Ritter Oval yesterday.
The Saints went down to competition leaders Dalby 29-22.
The win maintains the Wheatmen’s unbeaten premiership start and leaves USQ looking at its third successive road game on Saturday against St George.
Goondiwindi also remain undefeated after three rounds following its 66-7 win over St George at home on Saturday.
Toowoomba Rangers picked up their first season victory with a much-needed 17-12 victoryh at Gallas Fox Park over bottom-placed Roma.
