LEAGUE GALLERY: Mustangs galloping towards finals

THE Murgon Mustangs A-grade rugby league team has proved they are the team to beat after a dominate win on the weekend.

With only three games left in the regular season, Murgon sit comfortably on top of the table.

And after a convincing 80-20 defeat of the Wondai Wolves on Saturday afternoon, the players could be forgiven for becoming confident of claiming the 2019 premiership.

But coach Paul Brunjes said the scoreline was unexpected.

"I didn't think it would be like that,” he said.

Standouts for the home side were centre Keith Walsh, Eric Law, fullback Chris Bond and front rower Michael Giles.

Brunjes was impressed with his team's attack and their ability to get across the try line.

However he said he couldn't claim any involvement in the impressive post-try backflip from winger Maurie Fisher.

"That was all his own doing,” he said.

"He has been doing that since he was a kid.

"But he has gotten a bit heavier these days.”

It may have been a convincing win, but Brunjes said his team still had areas of improvement.

"We did drop a bit of ball in our own half,” he said.

"We'll be having a pretty heavy training run on Tuesday night.”

Brunjes said anything could happen over the next few round games and his players were focused on a tough hit out this Friday night against Kingaroy.

Especially considering the Red Ants defeated Murgon in their last meeting.

"They are going to be hard to beat,” Brunjes said.

"They worked us right over.

"Their kicking game is exceptional.”

In other games on the weekend, Kingaroy Red Ants reminded critics they still have plenty of sting with a convincing 38-28 win over Cherbourg Hornets.
