DESPITE out scoring Suburbs the Mareeba Gladiators secured a 24 all draw last Sunday as they travelled down to Gordonvale to play. 

With their numbers starting to swell as players return from injuries the gators looked dangerous and rightly so as they turned their current streak around.

Despite drawing the match the gators actually outscored Suburbs by nearly two tries but the windy conditions made it difficult to secure the conversions. 

Mareeba Gladiators Captain Coach Trent Barnard was pleased to have had such a good game away despite not securing the win. 

“It was a pretty good turna-round from the boys they delivered a good game,” he said.

“We played the footy that we started the year playing which was good. 

“The boys really turned up and we were unlucky not to win the game.” 

Up next for the gators is the first of two home games as they face off against Ivanhoes this coming weekend at Davies Park
