2nd grade won a tough match 15 – 8, coming from behind in a gutsy performance. 3rd grade snuck home 8 – 7 in a tighter affair than they would have hoped for. Both teams now have a week off to rest up and prepare for what will be a couple of big matches on the 15th.
1st grade unfortunately lost their Minor Semi to Newport, 14 – 25. Utilising the same toughness and resilience that has saw the team grow in both skill and respect from opposition teams, our guys this time weren’t able to get over the line against a good Newport side. Whilst it is disappointing to lose in a semi, it is worthwhile to make a couple of observations…
- This is the first time we have had 1st grade in the finals since 2003
- The club has come second in the club championship. Whilst undoubtedly everyone in the club contributed to this excellent result, it should be noted that 1st grade contributes half of the points each week to this tally. 1st grades excellent results in 2007 have contributed enormously to our success in the club championship
- This 1st grade team has been going from strength to strength over the past couple of years and will continue to grow in 2008 and beyond.
So to everyone who played on Saturday, win or lose, congratulations on your efforts and for the outstanding way in which you represent your club. We look forward to seeing you all at TG Millner Field at Eastwood on Saturday 15th September. Kick-off times will be advised in due course.
