HAMILTON HOLDS OFF GREENS COMEBACK

Another tough afternoon for Southern Beaches in Newcastle and Hunter Rugby, defeated by University.

Nelson Bay couldn’t hold out Wanderers and in the match of the round, Hamilton had a scare against the Greens at Passmore Oval.

It took Hamilton half an hour to break a first half arm wrestle.

Trailing 14-nil, two early second half tries locked the scores up at 14 all before the Hawks clawed back on top – 31-14 winners.
