Thirds backed up last weeks tight win with a much stronger effort and took out the game 33-0. Tries to Jared Fitzsimmons, Nathan Smith, Shane McMillan, Zak Michael Johns & Jay Blance. Conversions to Shane McMillan (2), Will Byrne and Steve Farrell. 1pt to front rowers Justin Thomas & Will Grassby, 2pts Will Byrne who also was voted players player. With 3pts on debut to new #8 Steve Farrell.
Seconds were always trying to come back from behind the scoreline, but couldn't catch up and eventually went down 14-35. Tries to Jordan Sanchez & Paul Leef, with conversions to Ash Roberts & Nathan Smith. I have heard from Jordan Sanchez - it took 5 stitches to close up his eyebrow and he is fine.
In Firsts Kariong got off to a good start and had an early 12-0 lead. Some accurate penalty kicking by Nathan Brown (3) got us right back into at 9-12 midway through the second half. Then a great try to Mitchell Jacob got us to a 14-12 lead. Unfortunately that was the end of our scoring and a late converted try and a full time penalty for Kariong left the final score at 14-22. 1pt to Matt Anderson & Patrick Wheatley (making his run on 1st grade debut), 2pts to Blake Jacob, 3pts and players player to Bradd Sheridan.
The Juniors finally found some dry grounds playing 7s trial matches at Heazlett & Ettalong. By all reports a lot of fun and a great start to the season for those who played.
Next week is Easter and no rugby is played. Next game for Seniors is 22 April away at Hornsby. Cheers Boys!
