It was an action-packed night at the Marie Marland Reserve last Wednesday when the Cockatoos edged past the G.O.A.Ts in a nailbiter.

In the high-scoring game, the Cockatoos ran five tries to hold a slim one-point lead at half-time, with Lincoln Vile crossing the line twice.

Toby Barr and Vile scored three tries for the Cockatoos, while Smith bagged five in her side’s losing effort. Meanwhile, Triple 0s scored their first win of the season when they downed Phoenix 8-6.
