Unfortunately, both Reserve Grade and the U18s lost their games.

The pick of the players for A-grade for their game was Keripo Gutchen-Gela, Hubie Elu, Reece Dally and new singings Kurt Jackson and Ty Grogan.

Gladiators coach Chris Sheppard said while it wasn’t a perfect performance, he was happy with how the game turned out.

“While not a complete performance it was a good start and a number of things were done but there is a lot to work on which we will focus on this week,” he said.

“We are looking forward to this weekend’s trial against Atherton and I hope we take another step in the right direction.”

Up next for the Gladiators is the trial match against town rivals the Atherton Roosters at Davies Park on Saturday.
