Our first game of the season for the Valleys under 16’s was at home against Brothers. We came away with the win 40 to 14. It was great effort by all to come away with win as it has been a turbulent few weeks on the training field. With training resuming back to normal this week this game gave us a fair idea on where we need to develop as a team. With a consistent game player of the match went to Mitch Lorenz. We would like to thank our sponsor Andersen Carpets.
Today is the first time opportunity, to have these two sides combine together and play footy as one. And what a great achievement it was for these young fellas, our first game of the season saw us take on Brothers, and with great delight the mighty Roosters got away with a great win. Our forwards lead the way with Tristan Klein getting our man of the match who scored three tries and Ashton Weribone making hard meters up the middle and also captain the side for the first time.
Our halves were outstanding the communication and organisation from Dodd and Carrie were instrumental and made things easy for their outside backs to finish things off. An awesome effort by all, if only we had a couple more players to have an interchange, but the boys got plenty of footy which was great to see.
I would like to thank our sponsors for making the day memorable in handing out the jerseys to the boys they truly enjoyed that.
See you all at training next week men.
Cheers Jack and Scotty.
