Another tough game on Friday night against Souths. The boys played some great football in the first half to lead by a slender margin at the break. But when they came out in the second half they got off to a flying start and scored some great trys and then tackled their hearts out to keep Souths scoreless in the second half .The whole side played a fantastic game against the odds. With one game to go they are looking to end their season on a high. Thanks to the u/15′s that sat up for us again, we could not of done it without you boys and it was good to see so many seats filled on bench.

Went to Pittsworth for a game of footy which turned into a mud bath,not that the players complained.I think they enjoyed the mud more than the game.The boys put in a great effort in the conditions and with a bit of luck we would have seen a closer game. Their second half was a big improvement on the first.Another very big thank you to Brodie, Wally, Jessie, Jerome and Michael from the under 15′s who played up for us after already playing a big game in those conditions. If we can all get to training and put on the paddock what we practice at training we should be able to finish the year on a high note. Thanks again to all the players and the parents for turning up in those conditions. Well done.
Sunday saw our under 16 boys play in a curtain raiser for Clydesdales at Gold Park. We only have 9 boys & with no under 15′s sitting up we bravely decided to take the field against a strong Brothers pack with plenty of eager reserves. Our Boys showed great Rooster character defending & also managing to cross the try line. But due to an injury the Refs called the game off as only 8 players. A big thank-you to all our U16 Boys & their parents for great support & club spirit.

The boys got their first win for the season against Souths and what a great win it was. They kept Souths scoreless in the first half with some very strong and gusty defense. Having just one reserve and 5 u/15′s playing up for us the boys played well and truly above themselves. They came out in the second half to a more committed Souths side but they never gave up .After that effort they can hold their heads high and be very pleased with a great team effort. If we can keep that defense and attack up they will win more games and the other sides will be looking out for us. Congratulations and well done. Because it was a fantastic team effort every player gets 3 points. Another very big thank you to the u/15s that played up because we could not of done it without your support.
Our next monthly meeting will be held at the club house on Tuesday 21st May at 6.45 pm. Please note a representative from each team is required to attend our monthly meetings. Everyone is welcome so come along and share your ideas and enthusiasm.
