Gatton Hawks Rugby League Club A Grade scored their second win in a row when they overcame Brothers 22-12 at Cahill Park sporting complex on 21 April.

Brothers led 12-10 early in the second half before the Hawks dug deep to grind away a win.

It was a tough affair with both teams coming to play.

Cameron Bundock scored early for the Hawks with Shannon Hicks grabbing a meat pie after 27 minutes.

Brothers rallied behind play makers Tony Clevin and Jacob Robinson.

They delivered with Wade Austin also playing well.

However, completion rate let them down at crucial stages for the Hawks to take advantage.

Gatton wrapped up the match with Joel Brett scoring a second half double.

Hawks’ front rower Ben Haviland was excellent in the middle playing the full 80 minutes with Shannon Hicks showing his experience in a polished display.

Gatton’s completion rate wasn’t the best but the conditions weren’t the best so they won ugly and they did respect their opposition.

Whilst Haviland received the player of the match, Hicks and Brett were very good.

Gatton now travel to Oakey for their ANZAC clash.

Gatton 22 (Joel Brett 2,Cameron Bundock, Shannon Hicks tries Shannon Hicks 2, Kaden Buhse goals) defeated Brothers 12 (Oliver Chaffey, Ash Taylor tries Tony Clevin 2 goals).
