Fyre have continued their strong form in the Broome Touch Association first division, dominating the Greenbacks in their round five match-up to prove they’re the ones to watch this season.

The Greenbacks looked the better side heading into the half-time break with tries from Jesse Borlase, Joey Kain and Brenton Mcburnie, seeing them one-up when the siren blew, 3-2.

But it was a tale of two halves, with Fyre’s Zac Minshull and Sophie Moore producing impressive second-period performances, securing five tries between them and holding Greenbacks to just one to see the game finish 8-4.

The result means in the last three weeks, Fyre have scored 31 tries and conceded just 10.
