Gympie have moved into second on the Sunshine Coast Rugby Union Colts Under 19s ladder.
They scored four tries in their 29–10 win over Maroochydore at Cotton Tree.
“Yeah that was great,” coach Rick Archer said.
“We knew Maroochydore was going to come down, home ground.
“Their team’s been getting better and stronger and stronger.
“They’ve been training well so my boys knew that.
“And they expected a tough game and that’s what we got.”
The Hammers’ players aren’t all based in the Gympie area.
“We had a couple of kids down from Maryborough today, which was fantastic.
“They drove all the way down.
“Yeah they scatter from everywhere.
“But at least they’re coming down and forming a team and having a bit of a run.
“We’ve got them from here Nambour, everywhere, so it’s great.
