The QLD Rail Comets Development Squad defeated Souths Sharks Mackay U-19s 40-10 after classy centre Tyron Haynes scored a hatrick of tries at Browne Park, Rockhampton on Saturday, February 12.
Haynes who is the captain of the QR Comets Development Squad was at his absolute best ripping the Sharks defence a part at will and scoring three very good tries.
Sam Thomason, Chris Moger and Ben Curran were also very good for the Development Squad.
Ben Bromley, the young brother of North Queensland Cowboy Rory was also impressive in his QR Development Squad debut.
Cowboys Scholarship holder David Taylor also had a run for the Development Squad and went quite well for someone playing a team of 18 and 19-year-olds. Taylor at just 16, has a huge future a head of him.
For the Sharks Todd Seymour, younger brother of Brisbane Bronco Brett was their best picking up a very nice try.
The Development Squad had far too much class for the boys from Mackay and never looked like losing. They were better for the run they had in their first trial and showed a lot better ball security.
The QR Comets Development Squad's next test will be on Saturday, February 26 when they face the Fitzroy Gracemere Sharks as a curtain raiser to round 3 of the Minniecon & Burke Comets Pre-Season Challenge.
