U8 Match Report

Result: D 25-25

What an improvement - a real step up from the previous week. We continued to work well in defence making the opposition work very hard for their tries. However, it was in attack that we came into our own. The team's passing and movement in support of the pass was fantastic and we can truly say that we scored some excellent team tries. Well done U8's.

U9 Match Report

Result: Lost 17-15

We played this game in four quarters of 7 minutes each. Players were rotated to give everyone fair playing time. We were slow to start and were always playing catch-up in the first quarter though we managed to register four good tries to Ranby’s six. We picked up the pace in both the second and fourth quarters and we edged those 5-4 and 4-3 respectively. Sandwiched in between was a narrow 2-4 deficit in the third quarter. Memorable moments from the afternoon included a sustained defensive block where we tagged numerous opponents close to the try line to prevent a score, and Thomas’s marvellous tagging in his first away match. 

Try scorers: Keagan N - 5, George C - 3, Edward B - 2, Ben H - 2, Sam H - 2, Ellis - 1
