Hawks lose to Marr

You don’t need a dry ball and an artificial surface to produce great rugby, as these sides proved in a Marr mudfest, deservedly won by the home side. Hawks opened the scoring with an unconverted Brendan McGroarty try in just 29 seconds, with Dougie Steele opening the Marr account from a tenth minute penalty, cancelled out three minutes later by Hawks’ Ross Thompson. This sparked-off a period of Hawks control, with Kyle Rowe skipping over for try which Thompson converted in 18 minutes. Marr regrouped, however, and when Hawks illegally halted a Marr forward drive, scrum-half Kaleem Barreto danced through for a try, converted by Steele. Marr were now in charge and Hawks had Fraser Hastie yellow carded. The 14 men could not hold out and off Samuela Vunisa’s charge off a scrum, Craig Kolarik strolled through, Steele converted and Marr led 17-15 at half-time. Another Barreto solo try began the second half with a bang for Marr, who put their collective foot on Hawks’ neck and never let them into the game, before, five minutes from time, a Conor Bickerstaff interception try, converted by Steele, put the result beyond doubt. Hard though they tried, there was no way back for Hawks.
