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.
