Frillnecks make it 11 straight wins at Rowden Park

RUGBY UNION: Rowden Park was home to another stunning performance by the in-form St George Frillnecks on Saturday.

The Frillies knew they were up for a tough game with Condamine fielding a strong team mobile side looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat the week before at the hands of Warwick.

Frillnecks coach Angus Jamieson said with the crowd down in numbers due to planting and the girls away in Toowoomba, the men in red soon got down to business giving the town what they came for.

"The Frillies soon entertained the crowd with an early lead 12-5,” he said.

"Some aggressive ball work from the Cods' forward had our boys defending on the back foot and eventually they crashed over to score.

"Half time worked well in our favour and the men in red set about using the structures that they had being working on.”

The points soon started to flow with Jack Stokes and Barney Watts both scoring doubles. Jamieson said some clever kicking from Nick Dunsdon soon saw the Frillies pile on some points quickly.

"Not as quick as the 85 metre try hero dash Dunsdon made for the try line though,” he said.

Once the 80 minutes were done the Frillnecks wrapped the game up 49-12.

This week see the Frillies take on the Goondiwindi Emu's in a top of the table clash with plenty of action to be seen.

Jamieson said the Frillies would love to have as many voices as possible cheering them on from the sidelines as this will be the last game for three weeks as they enter their bye stage.
