Giants Fall Short, 4-3, at Canterbury
Canterbury Bulldogs starter Will Hickton was in a groove as he led his team to a win over the Parramatta Giants, 4-3. The Giants fall to 6-9 and continue their uninspiring start to the 1986 season.

Had Ron Holtby not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the eighth, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 1st and 2nd, Holtby hit a run-scoring single. That made the score 4-3, in favor of the Bulldogs.

"You can't get too high when things go well, or too low when things go bad. Right now, I'm just happy we got the win," Holtby told the Canterbury Bulletin.
