Round 3 – 28th April 2019
U6’s had the bye this week
We came up against a competitive team today in the Newtown Junior Jets. Their offloads has us scrambling in defence and we worked hard to contain them. We will need to continue to work on keeping away from the sideline to retain the ball and play more attack instead of continually having to defend. We know we can work on this at training and put it into action next week.
Newtown 44 Lapa 12
Panther of the Week – Taj
Top Tackler – Amiera
Great first win of the season for our under 8’s today at Mascot oval against the Coogee Wombats 48-24. The kids get to kick this year and they all had a great go with many balls going over the black dot.
The team looked to have their groove back and had some great off loads and hard tackles.
Round 3 Lapa versed Botany at Rowland Park.
It was a very tough game, we had an off day & unfortunately we lost 42-24.
We know where our mistakes were made & the team will regroup at training this week to work hard on our defence.
It was a great game to watch and our boys defended well.
We didn’t complete all of our sets & made some silly errors which we will work on at training.
Tayte made a top try saving tackle
Logan put a kick up which bounced into Koby Michaels hands & he went over for a great try.
Best Forward Cruz Cooke who had brilliant hit ups & tackles throughout the whole game.
Best Back Malakai Quinlan who made great cover tackles, tackling some of Maroubras biggest boys.
We played Botany (G) today at Yarra. Bit of a slow start with Botany giving us a good tussle. Once the boys warmed up and got through the grind the tries started coming and we got the win. Good team tries and man of the match was our captain today Jacko!
Well done boys.
What a great way to start the season off for our U13’s versing Botany down Yarra Oval on this beautiful day today.
It was great to finally be back watching the boys play as they’ve had to wait longer than usual to start there season due to a first round Bye then forfeit the following week. I think it only made them more determined to win as you can see from today’s result.
Big effort by all in today’s game, especially great to see them backing each other up and encouraging each other throughout the game. They pulled off some big runs, great tries and even a sneaky little field goal to top it off, which seen them come away with a 37-4 win.
We also welcomed a few new players to the team this year. Kylan, Tyrell, Trey, Jesse and also Kye, who has retuned back to the team after a break.
Last but not least a big Thank you to William (Budda) and Harley who have been training the boys the past few months. Awesome effort by you two, especially keeping them all in line and also thanks to Gav for all of the behind the scenes work that has been put into the team.
Unfortnately we lost against Mascot at Yarra today. 🙁
