'Finally': Wondai Wolves score win
FOR the first time in a year the Wondai Wolves have won a game of rugby league.
The Wolves travelled to Caboolture on short notice on Saturday for their first trial game of the year against the Snakes reserve side.
The Wolves led 10-0 at half-time to finish on top 14-6 on the buzzer after four 20 minute quarters.
Wondai's new A-grade coach Peter Mickelo said the odds were against the boys in gold and black but the team proved the crowd wrong.
"After the game I spoke with the Snakes players and they were blown away because they were expecting to hand out a thumping,” Mickelo said.
"They finally got a win on the board and it has been a long time between drinks, and getting over that hurdle is great.
"The guys were glad to get a win and we will continue to surge on and keep going for the season.”
The Wolves failed to win a South Burnett rugby league game in 2018 but had a never-give-up attitude after big losses including going down 108-34 to the Murgon Mustangs.
Committing to their game plan was key to the team's win, according to Mickelo.
"The best thing is that even though they lost their way with the game plan in the second and third quarter they knew to go back to it and stuck with it.”
Mickelo said he has had 15 players working hard at pre-season training and that will be no different this week as they work towards a competitive season in the South Burnett competition.
"Now we know what we need to do and we will just keep doing it,” he said.
