Blues grind out win against Warriors

The Queanbeyan Blues are momentarily sitting on top of the ladder after they claimed a 16-12 win over the West Belconnen Warriors at Seiffert Oval.

The Queanbeyan Blues wasted little time getting off the mark as Joel Munro darted from dummy half to score in the second minute.

From that moment on, the Queanbeyan Blues continued to dominate field position and possession but West Belconnen managed to hold on in defence.

The Warriors managed to hit back as Bailey Loughhead crashed over the line to level the scores.

With only minutes left in the first half the Warriors took an unlikely lead when Ben Sione waltzed over the line after receiving a pass from Brent Crisp.

The Blues raced out of the blocks in the second half as Sateki Fetuani scored from dummy half.

Steve McLean and Bailey Loughhead were both sent off after two props got into a fight off the ball.

However the send-offs didn’t affect Queanbeyan as Josh Stuckey poked his nose through the line before offloading to the supporting Matt Parsons who scored the match winner.

Queanbeyan Blues 16 (Tries: J Munro, S Fetuani, M Parsons; Goals: M Parsons 2) d West Belconnen Warriors 12 (Tries: B Loughhead, B Sione; Goals: B Crisp 2)
