Noosa beat Uni 41-14

Noosa defeated University 41 points to 14 at the University of the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.

“It’s good to come back to the Sunshine Coast and play Sunshine Coast teams,” Noosa player Brendan Mayhew says.

“Uni is a lot fitter [than the Brisbane teams].

“They kept us going for a little bite there. The score doesn’t look that way.”

University coach Keith Davies Says his side still has players to come back.

“I think we need [the two byes in a month],” he says.

“Today we had people out with flu, we had three people pull up with flu.”

These illnesses came on top of injuries sustained in the earlier rounds of the year.

“[The byes] give us time to get some injuries right, get rid of the flu,” Davies says.

The entire competition has a general bye with the exception of the Reserve grade game between Maleny and Gympie Fraser Coast at Witta.

Those teams will have their bye the week after with all teams having the weekend of the 19th and 20th off for a representative bye.
