Byron Bay has tightened its grip on a finals berth in the far north coast rugby competition after a 34–6 win against Lennox Head on Saturday.
Playing in front of a home crowd on their charity day Byron posted six tries to two, and moved 10 competition points clear of Bangalow, their main rival, to take a place in the top-four and finals rugby.
Carlie Read, Ryan Betts, Eddie O’Hare, Dru Baggaley, Troy Wynter and John Laughlin all scored tries for Byron Bay, with a conversion apiece to James Bulmer and Eddie O’Hare.
In the final two games of the regular season Byron play Casuarina and Lismore, clubs sitting on the bottom of the ladder.
Bangalow comes off a bye and plays competition heavy-weights Ballina next week, and then Southern Cross Uni. Both are must win games if the club is to have a chance of making the top four.
The Byron reserve grade Sandcrabs lost 59–19 to Lennox Head, and are in fourth place on the ladder.
