The Bullets have shown why they are a force to be reckoned with after defeating the Greenbacks 12-7 in the eighth round of touch football at Father McMahon Oval on April 12.

The Greenbacks got off to a great start when they scored the first try within the opening minutes, although the Bullets were quick to retaliate with a try of their own.

That quick response soon led to the Bullets taking the lead with try after try, leaving the Greenbacks struggling to keep up.

However, the Greenbacks were able to remain within contention, suffering only a three-point deficit at half-time.
