The Byron Shire Rebels hang on to top spot on the Far North Coast first-grade rugby ladder despite being bested by Wollongbar-Alstonville Rugby 14–8, last Saturday.
The Rebels travelled to Wollongbar for the game, a rematch of last year’s grand final won by WAR.
Sol Hyde’s try for the visitors was matched by the effort of WAR’s Bodi Smith, and only a penalty separated the teams at half time.
But the second half went the way of the home team who added a further two penalties, from the boot of Sam Kerry, to their total.
Ballina and Casuarina also had wins leaving the top three on the table unchanged. WAR sits in fourth, well ahead of Lismore and Casino.
