Cougars given lesson by Coast

OUCH - that hurt! Central Queensland football was given a reality check on Saturday night when the young Cougars were severely mauled by league leader Sunshine Coast to the tune of 14-1. 

It was a brutal lesson for the players who are attempting to make the transition from the lower levels of the game to the faster, tougher version of football that is the Hyundai QSL.

The faces on the majority of faces told the story as the Cougars trudged off the park after giving everything but finding it was not enough.

Sunshine Coast 14 (Tyson Holmes 6, Jason Hicks 3, Sam Knight 2, Alex Henderson, Shaun Blackman, Aaron Brazendale) def Cougars 1 (Matt Davy) FNQ Bulls 3 def Bundaberg 1 Played Sunday: Gold Coast v Whit.
