Hornets have sting in tail
CUDGEN five-eighth Jason Baihn showcased his complete kit of tricks as the Hornets wrapped up the NRRRL reserve grade premiership with a 31-20 win over Northern United.
Baihn scored a try, had a hand in three more, and kicked three goals and a field goal to lift Cudgen to the premiership.
United were in the match up to their ears, trailing 10-6 at half-time, but soft defence around the middle of the ruck allowed the Hornets to launch a second-half blitz and shut them out of the game.
And then United lost their cool with Paul King and Gordon Roberts sin-binned for that little bit of extra vigour in the wrestle at the ruck.
Justin Bolt led a late fightback as United ran in two tries to narrow the margin but the game was gone when Baihn slotted a 70th-minute field-goal to make it 31-10.
Captain Steven Kelly and tyro Tyson Binge were the pick of the United bunch while Jacob Benn provided plenty from dummy-half.
