Will Onus returned in Tumut’s win over Ag College.Buoyed by the return of a handful of key men, Tumut gave their finals hopes a big push with a 19-15 win over Ag College at Beres Ellwood Oval on Saturday.
Just like they did three weeks again, the Bulls were able to edge a win over Aggies to elevate themselves on the compact ladder.
The Bulls are now four points clear of Ag College as the two teams battle out for fifth and a place in the finals.
Coach Tim Graham was pleased to score the all important win.
“It cements on spot in fifth and I’m very happy to get the win,” Graham said.“We definitely didn’t want to drop back behind them this week and it gives us a little bit of breathing room.
“I think they have a pretty tough run home and hopefully we can pick up another couple but we will see how we go.”
Notmuch separated both teamsall day and in the end it was the boot of ChristinoManuolevao that proved the difference.
They went try for try for most of the game however Manuolevao’s two conversions were all that separated the two teams at full-time.
“It was a pretty physical game and went try for try the whole way through and they played a very fast style of game,” Graham said.“They recycled the ball very quickly and our defence held upwell which was pleasing.”
The Bulls welcomed back Will Onus, PJ Sale and Jonte David back into the side to help alleviate some of their injury problems.
Tumut now face an extra long road trip to Hay to face Griffith next week who are five points ahead of them.
TUMUT 19 (W Reynolds, D Hooper, PSale tries; CManuolevao 2 cons) d AG COLLEGE (T Dunstan, T Macleay, J Grimmett tries)
