Watch a full replay as St Gregory’s High v Bass High.

A brilliant display from star fullback Cody Parry has led St Gregory’s College to a 22-0 victory over Bass Sports High in the second round of the Schoolboy Cup.

It was a wet weather slugfest, but the locals were too clean and ultimately too classy for Bass at a waterlogged Kirkham Oval on Thursday.

St Greg’s prop Cooper Cross said it was a great effort from his side in difficult conditions.

“The weather hindered our playing style but we got out there and got the job done.” Cross said.

Bass had plenty of possession early but failed to capitalise, and it didn’t take long for Parry to make them pay when he scored in the corner for the locals.

Liam Sutton made the sideline conversion look easy, nailing it in the pouring rain.

Parry made his presence felt again when he beat four Bass defenders and scoring his second.

Minutes later, the locals piled on more points on the back of a kick off the scrum which saw Parry win the footrace and offload to a charging Zakauri Clarke who scored in the corner.

The locals picked up where they left off after the break, keeping the pressure on and forcing dropouts while their supporting school crowd cheered on.

“We were hammering down on the whole attitude thing, and getting out there and playing in front of our school who were watching us and really pushed everyone on,” Cross said.

Powerhouse forward Clarke was again rewarded for his hard work when he scored off the back of a strong carry to extend the lead.

Bass’s deadliest brother combination Maxwell and Mitchell Taotua had solid games, but they couldn’t make an impression on the scoreboard.

Magpies Harold Matts star Thomas Fisher had no regard for his body, bravely putting himself on the line to save certain Bass tries.

Even when the game was in St Gregory’s hands, their never say die attitude and ability to defend their line set after set was inspiring.

Both sides fought hard, but in the end it was Parry and Fisher that steered their team home, St Gregory’s will face the also unbeaten St Dominic’s next week which is set to be a blockbuster.

“They’re a bit of a powerhouse in the competition, really keen to get out there and play against them.” Cross said.
