ROUND 1 & 2 – 2019
Rd 1 – the kids played Coogee at snape oval they where very excited to be back playing. we have new players Braxton Southan & another little girl Gurnoor Singh, they really play fun footy they tackle & run the ball. little Charlie makes the crowd get on there feet when he runs the ball cause you don’t know what to expect.
Rd 2 – the kids played Matto tigers at Yarra. Kai caught the ball on the full from the kick off & ran & scored under post. great skills from a 5yr old & Braxton Southan Bowen scored great tries and the whole team tackled really well, so proud of them.
A great start to the season last week for the Under 7’s. We were happy to see our players return for their third year together with some new faces joining us.
The team tried hard in Round 1 with our new players fitting in well. Lots of tackles were completed as we have moved to the ‘no chance rule’ and will need to practice staying in the field of play to maintain possession. Unfortunately we went down to South Eastern 44-20.

Round one (last week)
It was a good start to the season for our Under 10s, winning 16 – 6 agaisnt a tough Coogee Randwick side at our home ground.
We welcomed 5 new players to our team & the boys moved from mini to mod league, they all played very well together for their first game.
Man of the Match went to Neddy Johnston our little tough man hitting it up every set of six & puting himself in the firing line for evry tackle he made.
And Joey Gilbert made big hard runs straight up the middle, beuatiful cover tackles & also scoring a great try.
Excellent scrambling defence from the team.
A great win for our under 10s today, we played Mascot and kept them scoreless 52 – 0.
A great game played by all our boys.
Man of the Match went to two of our new players Kayleb Mercer who made some top tackles & scored two great tries.
And Jone Tuqiri who had great show & go’s, with some brillant passes putting players over the line.
Manager – Deneille
Round 1 – boys lost to Coogee 28-18. Boys fought back in the second half once they got their second wind but was up against last years competition winners so boys were able to keep their heads high and take the good things from that game to improve on for next week.
Round 2 – boys had a 16-16 all draw against Botany. This game is always a tough match with mate against mate and was played in a great spirit and sportsmanship between both teams! We did make a lot of errors with a lot of dropped ball but luckily so did Botany, so again boys started a lot better than last week and were in the game from the first whistle! If the boys keep improving each week it’s only onwards and upwards for the team!
Last week saw the boys beat South Eastern convincingly, 62-0. Everyone played well with Dwayne Lyons receiving man of the match.
This week we were beaten by the Wombats. It’s only round 2 though so we have plenty of time to improve. Man of the match going to Kalani Stevens.
