Sparkling skies across the Riverina saw Group 9’s round four completed with wins to Tumut, South City and Young.

The Blues travelled to Gundagai who again showed they aren’t the team they have been, leaving senior members of the side disappointed with their attitude and performance. After an uneventful first half, Tumut broke away and never looked back finishing 32-14 winners.

The Tigers take on Junee next weekend, with that side fresh off the bye.

In a twilight affair at Harris Park, Wagga’s South City Bulls hosted the Albury Thunder and hung tough to take the victory 16-12.

Coming off a loss to the Kangaroos (who had the bye this weekend), the Bulls rallied hard under lights at home to hold out a strong finishing Thunder. Country rep James Morgan’s long range intercept was a deciding difference for the Bulls, with the loss by Albury leaving form pickers scratching their heads.

Speaking of Pickers, Young got the job done on Sunday against Temora. Down 18-6, The Pickers poured on the points and despite a consolation try late in the game to the Dragons, Young took the win 38-24, hanging on to the Challenge Cup and making it three wins from three starts in the comp this season.
