Young Gallopers star as GPS blow Wests away at “fortress” Yoku Road

GPS blew Wests away in the final 15 minutes of their clash at Yoku Road on Saturday in a statement win for the previously up and down Gallopers.

Sio Kite’s side matched last year’s grand finalists, who were undefeated through the opening five rounds, for 60 minutes, then kicked up a gear and scored three late tries to seal an impressive 36-19 victory.

“To put it simply, the boys were just up for it,” coach Sio Kite told Rugby News.

"We want to turn Yoku Road into a fortress and win all our games at home and they played like a side that wanted to do that on the weekend.”

Without both starting locks in Daniel Byrne and Ollie Bartlett, Kite handed the No.5 jersey to colt Stuart Tualima who was outstanding on debut and scored an intercept try on full time to seal the win to big cheers from the home side’s supporters.
