Team Write Up 16th June 2018 v Pittsworth

Under 8’s
Game 1 – We’re getting to halfway through the season and all of the defensive effort the kids put in at training is showing.  Pittsworth arrived with much bigger kids but the team didn’t shy away from the defensive effort, putting their tackling skills to the test and working together.  Rianna, Nick and Mason got stuck in and got them down. Tyrese, Jack and Max then turned the defence into attack with some great long range tries, It’s really good to see the team spirit with the team now making an effort to congratulate each other.  The talk on the field is improving each week and I reckon we’ve got a few captains and halves in the team.  Great work guys.
Coach:  Charles Howe
Man of the Match – Tyrese Duncan-Brown
Player’s Player – Rianna Gibbs

Game 2 – Awesome game on Saturday against the Souths Tigers at Gold Park.  The eager little Roosters played amazing against the strong Souths line up.  Solid tackles and hard runs with Oliver Baker putting his body on the line countless times.  We managed to put a fair few in the corners where Souths got through the middle.  It was a great even match up.  We have learnt to stay away from the sideline and our ball skills are on point.  Very little knock-ons and wild passes on our behalf.  Well done everyone!
Coach: Michael Wilkinson
Man of the Match – Oliver Baker
Player’s Player – Harry Pollard

Game 3 – Our boys played a competitive Souths side and played very well as a team.  Jace Galligan had his best game of the season so far and a special mention to our little man Frank who is improving every week.  We also played an extra game mixing the boys up from all 3 teams against a very strong Pittsworth team.  We were super proud of our boys not backing down from a much bigger side.  It really made our boys throw the ball around a lot which enabled us to score a few impressive tries.
Coach: Darren O’Neil
