Perth home­ground to Al­bany trio

Albany Extra - - Extra Sport -

The West­ern Force may be con­sid­er­ing their fu­ture, but for three Al­bany boys there has never been any doubt where they would be each week­end.

Ewen Brown Jr, Lley­ton Brown, and Jac Coe have made the trip to Perth ev­ery week­end since April to play for their re­spec­tive rugby union clubs in the Rugby WA un­der-16s com­pe­ti­tion.

The Brown brothers play for Palmyra Rugby Union Foot­ball Club, while Jac plays for Wests Scar­bor­ough Rugby Union Foot­ball Club.

Though un­able to at­tend twice­weekly train­ing com­mit­ments, the boys have grown through­out the sea­son to be reg­u­lar field play­ers, con­tribut­ing to the var­i­ous po­si­tions they each hold within their teams.

Jac has scored two tries so far this sea­son.

The Al­bany Ju­nior Rugby Club have tried to cre­ate an at­mos­phere and play­ing abil­ity for all un­der-18s play­ers within the lower Great South­ern.

But due to at­ten­dance numbers, only the un­der-10 and un­der-8 squads have been able to meet reg­u­larly to com­pete against fel­low play­ers.

The AJRC have met teams from Bus­sel­ton and Bun­bury, and rep­re­sented their club at com­pe­ti­tions in Bun­bury and Perth.

The three boys would like to see other Al­bany un­der-18 play­ers par­tic­i­pate in the Perth com­pe­ti­tion, while the idea of an Al­bany team com­pet­ing in Perth each week­end would be a great out­come — it would give them the op­por­tu­nity to train lo­cally with their team.

Palmyra did not make it through to the fi­nals this sea­son, while Wests Scar­bor­ough met Wan­neroo RUFC dur­ing the week­end’s semi­fi­nals play-off to de­ter­mine who went through to the fi­nals.

Wests Scar­bor­ough were de­feated 3-12 by Wan­neroo, who face Kala­munda in the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nals this week­end.

Ewen Brown Jr, Jac Coe and Lley­ton Brown play rugby in Perth.
