It was a cold and wet Saturday evening at Ronnie Cargill Oval but the parochial crowd was treated to a highly entertaining game of rugby league as the Coolum Colts notched their fifth successive win in the Red Rooster Cup.

Coolum beat the Caboolture Snakes 44-10 to go to the top of the table.

The Colts started the game in a positive frame of mind and maintained their control and composure for the rest of the game.

Led by front rowers Manu Anderson and Wes Flieter, the Coolum forwards were again outstanding, with their goal line defence most impressive.

Coolum’s senior club president Bob McGrath said the quality of football played by the Colts in the conditions was outstanding.

“Their defence was excellent and the way the lads threw the ball around in attack made for a good spectacle for the crowd,” he said.

Try Scorers: N Hewton 2, P Burns 2, L Ramoir, D Jessop, G Burke, D Morgan.

Goals: N Ratcliffe 6.
