Gunnedah Bulldogs celebrated a winning day at Collins Park, Narrabri, last weekend when they won all three Group 4 Rugby League grades.

The Bulldogs started the day with a 48-nil win in Ladies League Tag, followed up with a 58-22 victory in second grade and then claimed a 50-32 success over the Blues in first grade.

Bulldogs first grade coach Sean Hayne celebrated a good day but wasn’t all that fussed with his side’s performance.

“It was a win …. we just made a lot of mistakes, get to the lead and then invite them back in,” Hayne said.

“Both teams did make a lot of mistakes. In the end we got a win and that was the main thing we needed. We’ll take the two points and be happy.”

Bulldogs’ hooker Callum Hayne was his side’s best and also polled the three points from the referees in the G4 B&F Award.

“We had a few who had a go. It’s frustrating to watch, knowing what they can do,” Hayne said.

He said his side’s inability to complete their sets and sustain a good 80 minutes will hurt the team when it comes up against the top sides.

“It’s a simple game, make your tackles and control the ball,” he added.

Narrabri coach Glenn Collins was also in a despondent mood.

“It was disappointing,” he told G4 Media.

“They made too many mistakes, dropped the ball, real under 10 stuff.

“We had some real good patches but we also more bad patches than good. When we held the ball we scored but we couldn’t defend our mistakes.”
