Surfers rocked by PBC power



PALM BEACH Currumbin consolidated second spot on the Gold Coast and District Rugby Union ladder with a shock win over a full-strength Surfers Paradise at Bienvue Avenue, Currumbin Waters on Saturday afternoon.

Running with the wind in the second half, the Alleygators ran over the top of the defending premiers winning 25-9.

Coach Craig Alexander chose to have his side running into the wind in the first half and the move paid off.

He said the side set up victory in the first half, controlling play well in the opening stanza and, keeping their more fancied opposition scoreless for much of the time.

Fullback Braidon Boniface once again dominated the scoring with one conversion and five penalty goals.

Meanwhile after two weeks of lack lustre performances from his side, Coolangatta-Tweed Barbarians coach David Proctor finally had something to smile about. The Baa Baas defeated Eagles 36-17 at Benowa after the home team had led 17-12 at half-time.

Proctor and his team also used a strong wind to their advantage, running into the wind early and then storming home in the second half.

Meanwhile in the other matches Nerang defeated Colleges 24-12 and Bond beat Helensvale 24-0.
