A close encounter for both teams with North Ward able to secure the win. North Ward came out firing and their forward pack showed their dominance right from the beginning, with impressive defence and strong ball running. Scrumhalf Sam Bradley exploiting the Burdekin defence out wide off a set piece move with Connor Kennedy converting. The start of the 2nd half was in favour of the Burdekin with Lachlan Kerr leading the way slicing through some poor defensive efforts from North Ward. The backline of North Ward proved the hero of the night, where they were able to string together some classy moves and winger Connor Kennedy was able to finish for the Old Boys. Full time score North Ward 29 def Burdekin 19.
