The TAFE NSW Polecats have been handed a hiding at the hands of Asquith Magpies in Round 4 of the Saturday Metro League.
With confidence high as the Polecats went into the match, it quickly turned sour with Asquith pouring on 18 points in 18 minutes. With a huge deficit the Polecats tightened their defence and were able to stop the onslaught, even pegging back a try before half time, when Cyrus Murray crossed, and after Dylan Kata kicked the conversion the Polecats went into the sheds down 18 points to 6.
With the Polecats down by 12 they needed a good start, but it was the opposite as Asquith stacked on another 18 points in quick succession. Polecats winger Jesse Fuller crossed out wide for an unconverted try, but Asquith weren’t done crossing again 2 twice before the full time bell saved the Polecats from anymore harm, defeating the Polecats 46 points to 10.
While the Polecats pride was bruised, they also took a huge injury toll out of the match with 5 serious injuries including a broken ankle to club stalwart Keith Weston, who will require surgery.
So with the Polecats having a bye next week to lick their wounds, the club wishes the best to Westo and all the other stars who took an injury out of the match.
