Mundubbera win MacDonald Shield glory

MUNDUBBERA won the inaugural MacDonald Shield against Monto at the Martin Love Oval on Friday.

The Tigers defeated the Roos 46-10.

Tigers coach Hugh Tully said he was happy with his team's effort.

"It was a big improvement from the previous games, the defence was a highlight for us and there were some good tackles in there," Tully said.

"Everyone played their part."

Roos coach Matthew Dahtler said his team's performance was also better than some previous games.

"It was a better performance than a fortnight ago but still nowhere near as well as we performed in pre-season," Dahtler said.

"We started the first half very poorly, we ended the first half not too bad, a lot better than how we started the first half, but we just didn't defend very well and our attack wasn't up to scratch either.

"We've got a lot to work on at training over the next couple of weeks."

The game was the first clash for the MacDonald shield.

Mundubbera Tigers life member Gavin Ford said the MacDonald Shield came about after a former player donated money towards a new shield.

"So the idea came up about the MacDonald family," Ford said.

"Allan MacDonald from Monto is a life member of the Monto club and Murray MacDonald is a life member of the Mundubbera club.

"So it was decided to play Monto at the first round of the competition for the shield and that was the first time we met this year.

"Next year it will be played in Monto during the first round."
