WANDERERS WIN CROSS-TOWN NHRU DERBY

In Round 12 of Newcastle and Hunter Rugby Union, Nelson Bay scored a big win over University, while Maitland dominated Beaches.

Singleton inflicted more pain on Lake Macquarie, while at Townson Oval Wanderers got up over rivals Merewether.

The Two Blues found themselves on the back foot early, George Ashworth yellow carded for a deliberate knockdown.

The Greens capitalised, Eli McCulloch darted from scrum half to score the first points.

A penalty not long after allowed William Frost to add to the home side’s account.

But that’s where the momentum stopped for the Greens… Wanderers putting on an unanswered 29 points to secure the victory.
