The Mullumbimby Moonshiners travelled to Ballina on Saturday looking to maintain their winning form. In an evenly matched first half both sides registered a penalty and converted try.

Dashing Duncan Kendall was Mullum’s man of the moment dancing his way through five Ballina defenders to score a try.

After the break the Shiners’ intensity and work rate paid immediate dividends with Simon Hutton cracking the game open with his blistering pace to score a try seconds after the restart.

Leon Matchett-Oates clearly best on ground landed a body blow with a pick and drive try on the back of some good work from his brothers-in-arms Mitch Arthur and Lachlan Stubbings. The Shiners’ mobility and fitness has been a strength all year, the side is making a habit of hammering opposition in the second half.

Matchett-Oates put the nails in the coffin with his second try for a convincing 29–10 win that keeps them top of the table.

The Shiners have a break this weekend with a bye.
