At the end of the day, in the competition ages we had 7 wins (including a forfeit) and 1 very close loss.
U10s beat WW 42-10, 11s won against WW 26-0, 13s overcame WW 39-34, 14s had a resounding victory over a tenacious WW 99-0, 15s beat Gosford 45-5, 16s lost to WW by one conversion only 21-19 ( a remarkable effort by the boys - Grips and the boys should be applauded for building up the team after playing Baa baas last year), and a win to the mighty u17s against WW 20-17.
Next week Seniors at the Sharkpool v Warnervale. Cheers Boys!
