Broome Touch Rugby Association’s extremely tight season has continued in round three, with two division one games again coming down to just a point.

In the first games of the evening at Father McMahon fields, the Greenbacks faced the All-Stars and the Pirates took on the Bushchooks.

At the end of the first half, the Greenbacks looked to be in a dominant position over the All-Stars after a massive three-try performance from Charles Oakley put them 7-4 ahead.

But the second half was the All-Stars’ with the team, usually one of the strongest in the competition, clawing back three tries.
