Zambrero's First Grade Wrap up - Round  12

Round 12 of the TDRU Zambrero’s 1st grade competition was one of the most hotly contested in recent memory and all teams battled sides threatening to take each other’s positions on the TDRU ladder. At Warrina Park Teachers West hosted Brothers in a top of the table encounter with both teams only losing a game apiece to each other in the lead up to the weekend, whilst Ross River looked to avenge their loss to Charters Towers in the round previous where the Redskins handed the Bulls their first 1st Grade win since returning to the competition, ahead of Burdekin looking to remain in touch with the top two teams with North Ward standing in the way following their impressive performance against Teachers West the week before.
