KANGAROOS VS COLTS
Kangaroos A good effort by the roos today only going down by 14 considering they lost by 50 last time, we’ll getting better just need to have good ball control. The Eagle Boy’s award went to Jake Slsttery.
Colts A closer match than the score suggests, with the Kangaroos putting in an improved performance against the 'at times, lucky' Colts outfit. The coach attempts to instill in his players that the great game of Rugby League is not all about just running hard and tackling harder. Using your brain plays just as big a part in winning a football game. The Colts failed to turn their brains on last Saturday, with careless mistakes, riddled with poor options and failure to follow the game plan, meaning that we were not at our best. Start using that thing on your shoulders more Colts and watch the improvement in your performances! Our captain Ben had a poor game by his standards, however the encouragement that he gives to his team-mates is great to hear. Ensuring that everyone gets a run and applauding solid performances by his mates is a display of good leadership. Keep it up, Benny Mannah! Will 'Thurston' Austin and Noah 'Marshall' Ryan were dominant players, crossing for 2 tries each. Putting the pedal down and straight running made these two hard to stop. Talking of speed, Jayden 'Galloway' Bohanna has that in abundance. He sped past opponents to score his first try for the year, likely not to be his last if he finds clear space. Sam Frazer also got his first points for the year with a successful conversion, along with Noah. Blake made fantastic ground with the ball this week, with big things expected from him in the near future. His wing partner, Will K. looked like he might cross for his first 4 pointer, but a poor choice of running back in field when the line was open out wide, was a lesson learnt and one that he won't make again. Ky made four tackles in a row at one point in the match and was seen sucking in some big breaths. Inspirational stuff from one of our "book-ends." Andrew has good skills when he has the ball in his hands. His tackling was not up to its usual ferocity and will be worked on at training this week. Matt again ran the ball up with determination this week. Alex 'Marshall' Graham felt that the oranges at half-time were sour! He took his anger out on the Kangaroos in the second half, with big yardage made through the guts of the opposition. Improved tackling on top of this saw him awarded the Eagle Boys award this week.
UNDER14 BEARS KANGAROOS WALLABIES
Bears the boys dug deep and hung in there and there is a lot of heart in the bears. the Eagle boy’s award went to Cameron Roberts.
Kangaroos tries to Jesse , Jai and great defence by all the boys. Jesse intercepted and passed Jayden to half the length of the field only to be brought down by the bears defence. Great tackling from Janama, Jacob were great under the high ball. Luke was great all game. the Eagle boy’s award winner this week was Sam Hampton. Wallabies the boys started off slow but defended well and then came back with a couple of late tries. The defence from Jack was strong the kicking game of Mark and the strong runs from Tom, Kyle was good in both games.
