Southern Lions coach Ashley Peel provided the following summary of the game -

"20 May 2017
Round 8
Southern Lions B2 vs Mandurah at Thomas Oval

Southern Lions met the Mandurah for the first time this season. The Lions knew they would have their work cut out for them with Mandurah sitting high at second on the ladder.

The Lions started off well with some strong forward work and pod running, controlling the game for most of the first half. Mandurah’s defence however, was too strong and they managed to capitalise on a few handling errors, scoring two converted tries before half time.

Going into the second half Mandurah came out hard and fast proving too good for the Lions. With the Southern Lions never giving up and showing good heart, they managed to score a try in the dying minutes of the game, but going down to a well oiled Mandurah side with final score being Lions 5 v Mandurah 39.

Player of the day went to Tim Finlay."

Commiserations to the coach and players on a tough away loss.
