Queensland Cup - Round 4-Review

WESTS Panthers displayed a lot of courage but in the end the Burleigh Bears proved too big to contain running out 58-14 winners in the ABC Television clash at Purtell Park. The scores were locked at 4 all following early tries to opposing centres Nick Shaw and Alfred Songoro but the Bears then raced in four further tries to lead 24-4 at half-time. A strong try to young Panthers prop forward Isaac Ah Mau early in the second term and a double to Songoro saw Wests trailing only 36-14 after 60 minutes of the match. Unfortunately fatigue was again a factor for the young Panthers with Burleigh adding four more tries to win comfortably. Big second rower Chris Nahi and Shaw notching doubles for the Bears. Skipper Adam Hayden capped a sparkling display in attack and defence to be named QRL man of the match.
