Nothing can separate Wallaroos and Isis Devils
NOTHING could separate Wallaroos and Isis Devils in their second-round Bundaberg Rugby League match at Eskdale Park.
Wallaroos put the disappointment of a 10-point loss in the first round behind them to earn a point against the former ladder-leaders.
Wallaroos co-captain and hooker Jack Horder said his side could taste victory.
The tackling machine said Isis, who beat Maryborough Brothers 34-10 in the first round at Salter Oval, were simply too strong through the middle third.
"Bloody close, just too many penalties and what-not," Horder said.
"They dominated the middle in the first half then used their edges. They got us up the guts. We're lacking a bit of go-forward.
"It's only our second game. We're training hard and were a bit fatigued in the second half. We need to learn to finish it.
"It's not a loss but it is back to the drawing board."
Horder praised utility Ben Turner who slotted into five-eighth for the unavailable Benjamin Waters.
