Un­der 10s show how

Comment News (Armadale) - - Look Local -

NOT many teams have achieved a per­fect sea­son, but ARKS Rugby Union Club’s Un­der 10s came pretty close.

The Har­ris­dale side fin­ished their sea­son un­de­feated, with an im­pres­sive 14 wins from 14 games.

Coach Adam Suther­land ad­mit­ted he was a bit sur­prised by their suc­cess­ful sea­son, but de­lighted to see his charges’ en­thu­si­asm.

“We’ve just been do­ing the ba­sics prop­erly this year, they’re start­ing to know what com­pet­ing is and re­al­is­ing win­ning is bet­ter than los­ing,” he said.

“They’re at a com­pet­i­tive level now, they want to com­pete, they want to win and I can only show them how to do it.”

Suther­land, who started coach­ing the team in Un­der 8s, said the play­ers’ growth was the most en­joy­able thing about deal­ing with the team.

“See­ing growth in the kids and see­ing their de­vel­op­ment from the start of the year to the end and see­ing them grow is great,” he said.

As this was ARKS first sea­son based in Har­ris­dale, it meant some play­ers were trav­el­ling to train­ing twice a week from places as far away as Palmyra and Man­durah.

Adam Viney, whose son plays in the team, said the team were well-coached not just in skill-lev­els, but their on-field con­duct.
