GRUFS go down to University

GRUFS were unable to secure their first win for the 2010 season against University, going down 34-11 on Friday night in Rockhampton.

But Gladstone coach Jason Bell was more than impressed with his side’s round two performance.

“The first half was probably the best half of football I’ve seen,” Bell said.

“They went to sleep for about 20 minutes in the second half and then came home really strong again.”

The coach pinpointed match fitness and fatigue for the drop in enthusiasm.

“But they got their second wind and came back,” he said.

With a number of new faces in the 2010 squad, Bell was confident results would follow when the squad gelled.

“We’ve got some stuff to work on, but it’s not dramatic,” he said.

“They’re still figuring out how each other plays.

“We’ve just got to work on our weakness and build on our strengths.”

Cam Carey was GRUFS only tryscorer and James Black put away two penalty kicks.

Best-on-ground awards went to Ben Simpson (3pts), Brian Cook (2pts) and Shaun Templeton (1pt).

GRUFS play at their home ground of Meteors next Saturday at 4pm against Colts A.

The Gladstone club are also calling for more players.

Anyone interested in playing is encouraged to join training Tuesday and Thursday nights at Meteors, from 6.15pm.
