Round 14 – 15th July
The Under 5s had a great game against a well drilled Redfern All Blacks. They enjoyed playing at their home ground with a big crowd watching on. Redfern had some great runners but LaPas defense was amazing. They chased down every break and made some try saving tackles on the line. The kids skills and understanding of the game is improving each week.
It was a chilly start to the day but just as the sun started to shine, so did our Under 6’s. We definitely enjoyed the home ground advantage – scoring plenty of tries, defending the line as a team and listening to the ref’s calls.
We went try for try with South Eastern but managed to come out on top with a score of 56-48. We know the cheering from our La Perouse supporters got us the win in the end.
We were then able to enjoy the day, especially the jumping castles! Thank you to the Committee for such an amazing NAIDOC celebration.
Panther of the Week – Roman
Top Tackler – Amiera
What an amazing day down at Yarra oval to celebrate Nadoic week.
The under 7’s definitely all ate their Weet-Bix this morning and loved the opportunity to play in front of all their fans at Yarra Oval. The hit up’s and tackles from 6 and 7 year-olds was amazing and they defended their line awesomely they all played like A graders and came away with a win against Wombats 44 -28.

Kingston, Ned & Cruz were on fire with their strong defence in the middle.
We couldn’t pick a man of the match as they all played awesome, so all 8 of our boy’s revieved man of the match today, great game boys ??
Our U10’s had a good win against Rovers 30-24. The boys started strong at one stage up 16-0. Rovers showed why they are in the top 4 and made a late surge but the boys defence has improved and their attack was on fire with some great strong runs by the boys and some great individual tries. Big shout out to Ben who crossed over for his first try under the post!
What a game by our U12’s today. Playing on their home ground against South Eastern.
Its always a tense and passionate game between these two teams and gee did they give a performance today.
Great defence by all and it’s great to see all the kids backing up and supporting each other out there.
Some big runs, big hits and an awesome crowd cheering our team on seen our deadly little team come away with the victory. 18-16 Lapa’s way!!!
