Redcliffe add to Norths defeated list

 

 

Redcliffe chalked up another win yesterday when they beat premiers Norths 21-14 at the Redcliffe Showgrounds.

 

Redcliffe won the reserve grade premiership last year and are in their first year of first grade this season.

 

Former Wide Bay player Col Weier was the star of the match.

 

He played lock for Redcliffe in the first half of the game then moved to centre for the second half.

 

His attacking play was a feature of the match, and his defence was well up to standard.

 

Promoted reserve grader Brian Cook at halfback was Norths outstanding back and former Brothers winger Roy Elmer playing his first game for Norths was always a threat in attack.

 

Redcliffe rested fullback and captain-coach Ken McCrohon and also centre Buddy Hunter.

 

Kev Benson turned in another good game on the wing for Redcliffe. Also prominent were Haggett and Howard.

 

Redcliffe's best forwards were Des Webb, Dick Boxsell and Mills.

 

Nev Warburton was Norths best forward and he was well supported by Alf Daveson.
