SIX OF THE BEST: Barbarians maintain unbeaten run

RUGBY UNION: Casuarina Beach have made it six in a row with a tight win over Ballina last weekend.

The Barbarians withstood Ballina's physical play to surge late for a 16-12 win.

The win keeps Casuarina Beach undefeated and second on the competition table.

Coach Mick Hall said he was very proud of the effort his team displayed in the win.

"It was a very physical game - they are very big,” Hall said.

"We are very fit which is was good, our boys were able to grind it out and our fitness was key in the end.”

Hall credited his side's defence as the major difference in the game.

"We said if we were able to get them to ground it would sap them of their energy and we were able to get there in the end,” Hall said.

The Barbarians will be aiming for their seventh consecutive win this Saturday when they travel to face Lismore City.
