Pegg Cup: North Lakes vs Brisbane Irish
Irish travelled to North Lakes for the Round 7 clash looking to make it 7/7. It was very windy conditions so Irish decided to kick possession downfield and try to force North Lakes to make the mistakes. Irish managed to get a scrum 10m from the North Lakes line and pushed them over for number 8 Mick Byrne to touch down.
It was a frustrating game of rugby with windy conditions North Lakes kept it tight which resulted in them coming away with a score. A few more tries from Ollie Bastable, Brock McGarity and Dave Bridgeman gave the Irish a healthy lead considering the conditions.
Second half was more of the same. The Irish looked good in patches and always looked dangerous when playing in the North Lakes half. Another 3 tries from Braden Lockyer, Ollie Bastable and Mew recruit Graham Cullen left the final score North Lakes 12 Brisbane Irish 44. Next up for the Irish is a home game against the Brisbane Hustlers and the Club Day.
