Bulls sitting pretty at No 4 spot

TUMUT Bulls coach, Jon Carmody came away from the game against Leeton on Saturday with mixed feelings after the firsts lost their game by a large margin.

“I was happy with the first half of the match but at half time the scores told the story – 41 to 5 Leetons way,” he said.

“But in the second half of the match the boys really started to fire up and picked up a few tries but it was not just good enough to get closer and gain a win.

“It was a better style of football though during the second half of the match,” Carmody said.

Although the game was lost with the final scores being 48 to 23, Carmody said there was positives still in this result.

Currently the firsts are sitting fourth on the ladder which puts them in contention to stay for the finals rounds; and with six games to go it looks positive for them to remain where they are or even to jump up a spot or two and into finals.

Carmody said he is fairly confident they will stay in the top four.

“Leeton was our closest threat to being moved out of the four, but with the teams we are coming up against next it looks like we could probably finish second with the games we have left.

“We have a bit of a space set up – we are hoping to pay in the finals,” Carmody said.

Players that stood out in their performance on Saturday were, Joel Saluslauna No 8 was good, Steven Gill, Jolame Vule Samusamuvod our full back and Jona Saumalsue our hooker.


The Reserves team went down also despite being a close game up to half time.

The final scores for the Reserves were 35 – 12.


The ladies had a bye last weekend but up until now have had a great season and are sitting around third on their ladder.

There are no games for the Bulls this coming Saturday but the Representative sides will be playing their annual matches in Tumut.

The Bulls return home the following week – playing at the Jarrah with all spectators welcome to come and watch the games – Women’s, Reserves and Firsts.
