CHILDERS put two teams into the Bundy Cup on November 14, with only a week’s notice.
There was an U10/12 mixed team, coached by Jason Tomlinson, and one U14/16 mixed team coached by Angeline Bauer and Rob Coop.
The U10/12 team played with only two boy subs and three girls. They played five games, winning four of them.
They made the semi-final and won.
In the grand final, Childers was against Rockhampton, who could run one team on and sub another whole side.
The fresh legs from the other side is what beat Childers.
As runners-up they were awarded with $500 in prizemoney.
The team were very happy with their effort, as was coach Tomlinson.
They also got the opportunity to get a photo with rugby league great Scott Prince.
The U14/16 team were unlucky on the day, only losing by small margins.
They all played hard in very hot conditions with some inexperienced kids who were thrown together with a week’s notice.
Coaches were really happy with the way the experienced kids looked after and covered for the girls who have never played before.
They all enjoyed the day and learnt a lot throughout the day, which is important.
