Isis walk the walk over Barbarians
MOVE over Quade Cooper and James Herwell, we have Quade Broughton and James Harney, plus add our two young ladies, Tegan Sheehan’s and Fiona Peddel’s names in the Childers Primary School, or more correctly, Isis Cutters U12 team which, captained by Chad Booker, won the Antoa Toia Shield for Best Spirited primary school rugby union team in Bundaberg Schools region.
“I’m delighted not only to get second in competition but to win this as best sports is the cream on top,” said Gary Marvell.
The trophies were presented at Childers Primary School assembly on Friday.
Friday night saw Isis vs Barbarians.
Isis had to bounce back after last week’s loss. Down 7–nil.
Earlier the Isis boys began to the challenge. Barbarians talked the talk this week but they couldn’t “walk the walk”.
The final score flattered Barbarians as Isis embarrassed Barbarians into uncontested scrums.
“It was a powerful forward determination,” said coach Gary Maroney.
Isis needed a larger bench and with Byron Hardy, Ben Devlin, Chris Royan, Riley Golchert, Daniel Connolly, we had numbers to play with.
Forwards Kallum Morgan, Ben Fleming, Peter Van Rooyan, Ethan Pippia, Josh Hutchins and Jason Palmer were powerful.
The backs started to get in combination with Tom Green, Stephen Pickersgill, Jake Bauer and Brendan Morris plus a wonderful introduction by our Tongan quadrella – Trevita, Sione, Apaiata and Mapa to Isis Rugby.
In the first half, the first try to Kale Hendle after a quick tap then followed up quickly by a second try to Ty Nash running off the back of a ruck.
Isis went in half-time 10-7 ahead.
In the second half Isis scored through lonely backs play by Man of the Match Andrew Golchert and Kale Hendle for Heath Tisdell to score.
So many more opportunities in the second half, like club centenarian Brad Brighton bustling through Barbarians’ defence, only to pass and lose the ball over the line.
“Will have to stop simple mistakes but we are getting better,” says coach Gary Maroney.
A good result. Isis 15, Barbarians 7.
