A dominant second half has seen Nambour secure their spot on top of the Cricks Volkswagen Sunshine Coast Cup with a 33 to 5 win against Gympie at the Laidlaw Road ground Friday night.
Nambour number 10 Jake Harris said: “It was a good test because, you know, we’ve played this is probably a third wet weather game. The last couple, we’ve really had to grind for. And I think it’s starting to click in the wet weather for us, which is really nice. We’ve trained in it a lot.”
Female participation is a driving force in building the club up again according to Harris. Harris said: “[T]he girls are going really well as well, like our junior girls right through to our senior women’s really great program here, so. We’ve got about six or seven new boys that have actually never played rugby before.”
He continued: “Yeah, absolutely, mate. The girls I think are more committed than us. They train harder than us. Luke Zeremes, super coach, is doing well. I think there are, they’re really inspiring the boys and making us work hard at training. So yeah, it’s awesome, really good.”
In the other game played Friday night University defeated Maroochydore 19 points to 10 at Laidlaw Road. Brothers v Caboolture was called off due to the state of the field at Kawana
