On Saturday, Wynnum (Bugs) defeated Maroochydore 29 points to 10 in round four of Australia's Sunshine Coast Rugby Union. The Bugs opened the scoring with two tries before conceding a penalty goal. They went to the half time break up ten points to three.

"All credit to the boys, especially the forward pack all day just dominated them," Wynnum player Nathan Urquhart said. "Pushing forward, letting us spread out to the backs, punching forward through the gaps. Just nice strong running. The scrums were just unbelievable all game. That put them on the back foot. Then just let the backs do what they do."

Wynnum piled on three more tries in the second half before Maroochydore got one of their own.

"That one was a tough one to watch," Maroochydore coach Ben Radmall said. "I don't know how much effort there was from the boys I think they maybe rocked up and thought they were going to win maybe seeing the scores last week [Wynnum] against University. They probably thought they were going to have an easy game."

In other results, University defeated Caboolture 60 points to 5, and Noosa defeated Caloundra to retain the SGQ Shield 29 points to 14.
