The battle between the two form sides of the Group 20 competition lived up to the hype as the Hay Magpies and Griffith Black and Whites played out a 26-all draw at the Hay Sportsground on Sunday.

For the Black and Whites, Jadha Anderson was able to get across the line twice while Shailyn Williams was able to kick three conversions. Lily-Belle Misiloi, Mata Varasia and Ashleigh Harris were able to score the other three tries for the Panthers to see the game finish level.

The home side made a barnstorming start as Maddison Payne and Lauretta Leao-Seve scoring tries inside the opening four minutes.
There was a break in the points scoring before Serenity Laweloa found her way to the try line just before the halftime break to see Yenda do in at the break up 12-0.
Second half tries to Chynna Clarke and Chloe Richards wrapped up the Blueheelers 22-0 win and now sets up another top of the table clash when they travel to Hay to take on the Magpies on Sunday.
