Wee Waa Panthers are getting better each week and more importantly are not giving up despite a tough start to the Group 4 Rugby League season.

The Panthers were back in action on the weekend following the full comp bye a week earlier, and they produced their best showing yet in a round six loss against the Dungowan Cowboys.

Wee Waa welcomed Dungowan to town on Sunday and they clashed at Cook Oval where the visitors led 14-0 at half-time.

The Panthers hit back with a try of their own through Zack Doring early in the second stanza, but the Cowboys were too good and piled on 24 unanswered points to win the match 38-4.

Despite going down, it was positive for the Panthers that they played out a full 80-minute game after their first four matches in rounds two to five ended early due to the 60-point mercy rule.

Wee Waa will return to Cook Oval on Sunday for their third home game of the campaign when they challenge the North Tamworth Bears in round seven.

The Werris Creek Magpies, Moree Boars, and North Tamworth Bears also won other round six first grade games across the weekend. Werris Creek held out the Boggabri Kangaroos at David Taylor Oval to win 22-20, Moree travelled out to Kootingal Oval where they beat the Kootingal-Moonbi Roosters 38-22, and Norths scored a 56-4 home ground victory against the Narrabri Blues.

The Gunnedah Bulldogs had the bye in round six and picked up their first points of the season.

Those results saw Moree finish the weekend in outright first place on the table with 12 points following six wins from as many games. Werris Creek and Norths are second and third with 10 points, Boggabri and Kootingal are fourth and fifth with eight points, Gunnedah and Wee Waa are sixth and seventh with two points, and Narrabri are last with zero points.
