The Dauphin Mavericks rugby team learned a valuable lesson, Saturday, when they faced the league-leading Winnipeg Wombats.
Winnipeg entered the contest with an 8-1-1 record, compared to Dauphin’s 4-4 mark and the Wombats played a style of game the Mavericks have not seen much of this season, resulting in a 48-10 Winnipeg win.
Nick Searle and Codi Harrigan had Dauphin’s tries, both of which came in the second half.
Despite the lopsided result, Harrigan was pleased with the Mavericks’ play.
“I told these boys, ‘let’s keep our heads up. That was an amazing game.’ We came short of numbers, they came with two full lines. They’re 8-1-1 for a reason. They’re a good team. They played great,” he said.
