With a disrupted home fixture due to some rain on Friday night, the council only allowed us to play 3 out of 6 grades being Colt’s, 2’s and 1’s.
With the day starting off with colties – it was looking good from the outset with the redmen blowing out to a 12-0 lead early in the piece, before the hangovers kicked in and we went from a dominant team to a team where nobody could catch a cold or make a tackle. St Pats went on and won in a scrappy affair 36-26. It has since been revealed that a team member scheduled his 21st on the Friday night hence the ghost like figures running around on Saturday.
We then moved on to 2’s where we saw our injury depleted team battle hard for the first 20 mins or so before St Pats gained momentum and ran over the top of us, eventuating in a 50-7 victory.
3.15 saw the battle of all battles – facing up with a severely injury depleted team against last years premiers who we have not beaten in first grade in a number of years. This game was a tussle the whole way along with only one point separating the two teams until the final minute, when we gained some momentum and seeing Michael Dempsey crash over for a try to help seal 4 try bonus point victory 27-19 ! This game was a fantastic example of the hard work and dedication being shown by the club, and proves that we are a force to be reckoned with for the rest of the year.
In other news – with State of Origin this Wednesday night being played in Sydney, the coaches of all grades are currently discussing all possible options for training this week. Please stay tuned to all forms of social media for the final word on training.
