Mustangs hold their own despite a defeat

THEY may not have come home with the victory, but they sure showed heart.

With only one training session as a whole team an hour and a half before game time, the Western Mustangs successfully put pressure on the Gold Coast Titans developmental side in Toowoomba on Saturday but ultimately came undone, losing 24-12.

Western Mustangs coach Shaun Radnedge said the side was not outclassed.

"It was pleasing that they held their own,” Radnedge said.

"(It was a) fitting end to a pretty tough pre-season.”

Players from south-west Queensland travelled to five training sessions late last year to prepare for last weekend's game.

"It is a good warm-up for the Adrian Vowles Cup and a stepping stone for the rest of the season,” Radnedge said.

Training started last week and will take place at the showgrounds at 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Radnedge said more numbers were needed for the teams, and the under-16s were numbering about 10 players.
