Capras outclassed by Magpies

THE Central Queensland Capras were denied a win in the team's first match in Gladstone in more than a decade.

The Capras went down to the Souths Logan Magpies 44-6 at Marley Brown Oval on Saturday night.

The score was close for most of the first half at 10-6, before blowing out to 22-6 to the Magpies at half-time.

The Capras were kept scoreless in the second half by the Magpies, whose dominance was complete in the 38-point win.

Capras coach John Harbin said the flashes of brilliance shown by the Capras at times during the game were not enough for a win.

"We played well in patches," Harbin said.

"We did so well in defence in certain parts.

"We just need to learn to focus for the entire 80 minutes."

But Harbin did not seem to think the news was all bad after the match.

"We'll learn that as the season goes on," he said.

The area with the most room for improvement was ball-handling, Harbin said.

"They could have controlled the ball better."
