8 Eid caps a strong game for Trinity with a try from short range. Edmed converts for 27-8
An exciting win for Barker and a heartbreaking loss for Waverley.
Barker only led in the first 5 minutes and the last 2 minutes.
The problem with playing a side like Barker is you only need to give them a sniff of an opportunity and they can convert it into points from anywhere on the field.
Waverley had the ascendency with a few minutes to go 29 - 26 and were controlling the ball about 30 out from Barkers line but a kick didnt find touch in general play and Bryden beat defenders. They scored soon after 31-29.
A courageous effort from Waverley against a bigger and stronger Barker team. A better team on paper.
Their defence was tremendous under fatigue and pressure but Barker had the individuals to just win.
The underdogs went within a whisker of winning. The penalty kick from Lathan H-W on the bell just screwed off to the right
A great game to watch. The big crowd got their money's worth but frustrating for Waves supporters. So close against the odds.
Thats how Barker felt last year losing at home by a point to Waves. So close but no cigar.
Congrats to both teams.. Everyone played their hearts out and it was a pleasure to watch. Be still my beating heart.
