Home for our first game of the season against Amuri.
It was a high scoring affair with both sides concentrating more on attack than defence.
Travis wiki playing in his first game for the team scored two very well taken tries.
Outstanding game by Sam who took out our player of the day award. He ran Hard, he ran straight the big fella! Bailey also had a blinder and ran really well. He has shown a great deal of promise since joining our team and picked up our second award for most improved.
Great game guys fantastic start to our year .
75 to 75

We travelled to Harwarden for our second competition game of the season.

After the rules were laid down by the ref we took the field. Luke lead us onto the field as captain and we kicked off.We had to have 3 man scrums and kick offs by the team who scored. We are still playing rippa but I am sure the boys will look forward to tackle in the next few weeks We had a bit of a slow start until James crashed over in the corner.
Our defence let us down a bit close to the end of the first half as United ran in a couple of tries.
Ben showed a great deal of pace from the base of the scrum on a couple of occasions. Captain Luke backed up well to score a great try down the sideline and Jayden also showed a great deal of commitment on defence. We played hard but couldn't adjust to the rules fast enough and we turned over the ball on too many occasions. Some work ons for the training session.
Ben took out our player of the day award and James was most improved with a great game on defence.
Tries to Luke
John Luke
Well done guys. Bring on Ohoka.
