The Lennox Head Trojans have turned their season around with back-to-back wins in the Far North Coast Rugby Unions’ President Cup.
The run started the weekend before last in round six when the Trojans took on Evans River at home, and won a nail biter, 27–26.
The home crowd ultimately enjoyed a fast and furious game, but would have been less than optimistic about the fortunes of the Trojans when Evans ran in a try from the first kick-off.
After this though, the game settled into a high-action contest with full field rugby, and the teams matching it try for try.
The game was only settled in the final minutes when Trojan Hayden Blair got over the line to deliver Lennox Head, a come-from-behind win and their first competition points for the season.
It was a good win considering Evans River were in third place on the competition ladder.
Other try-scorers for the Trojans were: Zac Alexander (2), Tom Wauch, Jorelle Yok, and Hayden Blair, with Zac converting one.
The side backed up the win last Saturday when they travelled away to beat the Kyogle Cockies 32–14. The Cockies are yet to register a win for the season
The winning run puts them in the slot for a chance at the finals. Richmond Range (25 ladder points), Evans River (21) and Yamba (20) are well in front on the ladder but Mullumbimby (12), and SCU (11) are within reach, with plenty of the rugby season yet to play.
Next week the Trojans have a bye before being tested when they travel to Mallanganee Sports Field to take on the competition leaders, Richmond Range.
