Embattled Blues mauled by Pumas
THE Coolangatta Tweed Heads Blues have been hurt on the scoreboard again with their loss to Springwood Pumas on Saturday at Peak Oval.
After five straight losses in the Pineapple Hotel Cup competition, the Blues will be forced to map out a new schedule.
Their 91-point round 10 loss (22.20-152 to 8.13-61) to the Pumas compounds the fact the Blues need numbers and consistency to revive their flagging form. Coach Grant McKenzie said nothing encouraging could be gleaned from the game and it was a continuation of a horror season.
“It wasn’t pretty bad and there are no positives coming out of a game like that,” he said. “This season has gone from bad to worse and we have started to fall away from the competition. We started okay and then all these injuries came knocking our run.”
McKenzie gave his side the thumbs down on performance and listed only three players as having satisfactory games.
“Our centre half flank Mark Greeney, fullback Dalton Sanderson and our vice -captain Jason Smith played well but all of the other players had a very average match,” he said.
The pattern of poor results has continued for the Blues in their battering by the Pumas.
