The Wombat 1st grade had to work hard for their 26 – 9 win over Rhinos at Apex Oval, Dubbo on Saturday. They overcame some lapses in concentration and an overwhelming penalty count to come home strongly with two impressive tries in the second half. The seconds had to work even harder to prevail 18 – 14. Some ill-discipline made this score-line a lot closer than it should have been but they came through in the end. Well done Wombats!
The Wombat Women had another emphatic victory over the Bathurst Bulldogs on their home turf on Saturday, running out winners 35 – 0. Well done again ladies!
