This afternoon, our remarkable Valleys U15/U16 Youth Cup team took on the Gatton U15/U16 Youth Cup team at Cahill Park. As we only had 11 awe-inspiring Roosters turn up to play, we decided to play 10 a side in the 1st half. Our Valleys boys certainly held their own in the first half as they kept the Hawks on their toes and at the end of the 1st half, Gatton lead Valleys 24-16.
In the 2nd half, Gatton played 13 players (with reserves to spare), whilst we had our awesome 11 Roosters. Our Youth Cup boys never gave up during the game, however competing 2 players down was extremely challenging for Valleys and in the end, Gatton ran away with the win.
Valleys tries went to Thomas Hatch (2) Tristan Klein, Darren Galvin and Jordan Robinson, with successful conversions to Shannon Snelling (2) and Thomas Hatch.
During the game, we saw some amazing tackles from Tyrell Tuitoga, Darren Galvin, Jayden Clevin and Jordan Robinson, some tough hit ups from Tristan Klein, Jordan Petrie, Isaiah Forden and Joshua Trost and brilliant runs from Thomas Hatch, Shannon Snelling and Marco Adreadis.
Thank you for all your hard work and effort today boys and we’ll see you all at training on Tuesday.
