Coach slams 'disgraceful' Baa Baas

COOLANGATTA Tweed coach Mark Iannelli labelled his team “disgraceful” after they were thumped 45-14 by Wollongbar Alstonville in their round six in Lismore at the weekend.

Iannelli, who had been unable to supervise the Tweed training last week due to illness, said the team lacked intensity and enthusiasm and were a far cry form the side that played in last year's grand final.

“They certainly didn't come to play rugby,” Iannelli said yesterday.

“I don't understand what happened and our on-field discipline was appalling.”

The Baa Baas had breakaway Bronson Hetet set off and he will face the judiciary on Wednesday night.

The match, a curtain-raiser ahead of the NSW Country versus Queensland Country clash at Crozier Field, was a disappointing effort for Tweed as they had hoped to bounce back from last week's heartbreaking narrow loss to Lismore.

The news was better for the Baa Baas Seconds who posted an impressive 21-15 win over Wollongbar.

In other matches, Casino downed Southern Cross Uni 14-0, Lismore defeated Grafton 43-22 and Ballina beat Lennox Head 13-5.
