McAnelly in winning touch team

NATHAN JONES wasn’t the only local to taste victory in the trans-Tasman Touch series last weekend; Lismore speedster Hayley McAnelly was part of the open mixed team that won afiery series 2-1.

After taking the first game the mixed side looked to have the series on ice when they led 6-3 in the second match, but a spirited Kiwi side fought back into the contest to take it 8-7 and force a decider.

The third match looked gone with Australia down a try as the seconds clicked down to single figures, but with a man in the sin-bin New Zealand couldn’t deny a green and gold try which forced the match into a drop-off.

After two minutes of extra time, with both teams reduced to four players, Australia scored to take the match and the series.

McAnelly, like Jones, now has the 2011 World Cup in Scotland on her mind.
