Bowral fought hard against Shoalhaven in Shoalhaven and went down 20-5. In a frustrating game where both teams were carded twice, no one walked away from the experience feeling pleased.
Bowral had the majority of possession, field position and dominated the scrums. The out of condition ref struggled to keep up with the game and Shoalhaven exploited the situation more effectively to pilfer a number of Bowral rucks. These stolen balls were quickly moved wide for them to score against the run of play.
Bowral looked the better team with scrums, lineouts and structure being superior, yet were beaten on the scoreboard. The big picture is positive as Bowral continues to build for the second half of the season.
Points: 3: Cam Madden, 2. Ben Lewis, 1. Carlos Rahme.
