Team Write Up 2nd June 2018 v Gatton

Under 8’s
Game 1 – It was a cold start to the morning but the whole team showed up and was eager to play.  Gatton had some serious size about them and our team took a little while to get used to tackling them.  Max and Jack led the way with the tackling and it helped the others get into it as well.  Max managing to roll one of the Gatton players on their back to hold them up in the in-goal, it was something to watch!  The whole team played well in attack with Jayden getting across for a try and some really strong hit-ups which set the platform for Quade, Tyrese and co. to run riot.  Thanks to Tim and the Hawks for the game.
Coach:  Charles Howe
Man of the Match – Quade Howe
Player’s Player – Jayden Quinn

Game 2 – Evenly matched up game against Gatton.  Some hard tackles by the kids especially Jannali and Nash with try saving tackles and great runs.  Good team effort by all keeping their line and working on spreading out.
Coach: Michael Wilkinson
Man of the Match – Jannali Willis Duncan
Player’s Player – Callum Mailman
Game 3 – Today we played a very tough Gatton side, our most physical game yet with our boys really stepping it up and matching them in attack and defence.  Super proud of all the boys effort this week.
