GRUFCs will learn from the loss says vice-captain
RUGBY UNION: Gladstone Rugby Union Football Club Goats suffered their first loss in two month on Saturday against Drovers A.
The in-form GRUFCs team went down 43-24 to a team that is likely to claim the Rugby Capricornia A-grade minor premiership.
Goats vice-captain Seamus O'Connor said it was always going to be an uphill battle.
"It was a tough game and unfortunately we were missing some of our best players for the game," he said. The Gladstone side battled hard and O'Connor said a few Goats players stood up.
"Jayden Page played well at flanker and also the West brothers Jake and David did a lot of damage," O'Connor said.
Goats have the chance to regroup because they have the bye this weekend. GRUFCs again have a tough away assignment on July 27 against Frenchville A at Ryan Park.
Finals commence the week after.
