Rugby union: Perth-Bayswater improve but not enough to beat Wests

PERTH-Bayswater Rugby Union Club turned in another creditable performance on the weekend against a ladder-leader but it was not enough bring up the seniors’ first win for the season.

Wests Scarborough, who went into the game with a 5-0 record, had to fight hard to score a 48-28 win against the Numbats.

Two weeks ago, Perth-Bayswater lost to Palmyra 39-20, the closest any team had gotten to the then rampant side.

After a shock 3-point loss to Nedlands last week, Wests Scarborough knocked Palmyra off the top of the ladder.

Perth-Bayswater put up a gallant fight, with Julien Masse, Brandon Olow, Nathan Hunt and Aisake Meo scoring tries.

Dylan Parsons continued his unerring accuracy this season, converting three from three, with Cameron Eaves stepping up to convert another.

Albert Nikoro was on fire for Wests, scoring two tries, five conversions and a penalty goal.

Perth-Bayswater reserves are faring better this season, and are on two wins, three losses and one draw after the weekend’s narrow 15-10 loss to Wests.
