The Byron Coopers Magpies put last weeks one goal loss behind them with a big win over Robina on Sunday at Bangalow.

The first half was all one way traffic for Byron with solid ruck work from Trent Spano and on-baller Dave Smith.

Byron’s forwards including Liam Afflick and Zeke Hower put on 11 unanswered goals in the first half. At the other end of the ground, strong defence from Zak Petty and Nick Baker denied any score for Robina. Half time scores were Byron 11.8.74 to Robina 0.0.0.

Byron continued to make the most of the perfect conditions in the third quarter. Rory Redfern and Kane Bullock got plenty of disposals in the midfield.

The final quarter repositioned the team to provide usual back line players with goal scoring opportunities. Dan Tiffen and Shan Davidson both grabbed the chance with shots at goal. Efforts at goal by some others confirmed their place as defenders.

The final score of 21.20.146 to 4.3.27 provided a satisfying win for Byron.
