Why 80-8 loss doesn't truly reflect Wondai's effort on field
RUGBY LEAGUE: Cherbourg Hornets' senior rugby league team had a good win last Saturday, but they did not leave a bad sting on their opponents Wondai Wolves.
Wondai Wolves coach Mick Greenwood said the score of 80 to 8 at the game on Saturday July 28, did not necessarily represent the game, as the match was a significant improvement for Wondai.
"It was a full game of 80 minutes for the guys from Wondai to stick it out, which was good to see,” he said.
The Cherbourg team came with a full bench of players, however Wondai have struggled with numbers for most of the season.
Cherbourg was quite supportive and understanding about Wondai's lack of players on their senior team, Mr Greewood said.
"I think it shows the importance of the local competition, with all of the people involved,” he said.
All of the clubs had gone above and beyond to help the Wondai Wolves senior team stay on the field, Mr Greenwood said.
"It makes me proud to see how much the other clubs have supported us this year,” he said.
