17 Apr Round 1 – U9C’s v Menai Roosters – Lost 28-24
Our first match of the season and what a game! Such a great team performance and effort to narrowly go down to a quality Menai side, who brought some big forwards.
We welcomed a few new faces (old mates really) with Luke Walsh and Isiaih Murr (D-Max) adding a heap a of attacking options to our side – and a some pretty handy defence too. Luke scored 2 tries and was our undisputed Player of the Match.
Captain (and birthday boy!) this week was Lachlan Poole, who really lead from the front – getting across the stripe, kicking conversion and making some big hits in defence.
Up the middle it was great to see Austin Keys and Finn O’Keefe make valuable yardage and trouble their big men.
Connor Curtis continued his 2018 form with some blinding attack, while our go-to cover defence man Storm Mason always makes the opposition think twice about running.
Our middle men Jack Youlton and Liam Bruce continue to defy their size, taking on the bigger attackers all day.
Keeping us organised and making some smart decisions in attack were Zac Rogers and Jake Mott. Look out these boys are going to have teams on notice this year for sure.
An excellent start and we’re excited to build on this for next week and beyond. GO CROCS!
