Rugby jnrs raid ri­vals

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE ju­nior Raiders at home saw the un­der 10s bat­tle out an­other hard game and just miss out on a win.

The boys had a great time in the wet con­di­tions and showed their skills as they learn more about rugby union.

The un­der 12s were up against the third-ranked Bar­ron Trin­ity, who were out to take sec­ond po­si­tion on the lad­der.

The Raiders had other ideas and showed Bar­ron Trin­ity who was boss on the night with a much-im­proved per­for­mance over last week.

Their sup­port play on the field and the power of the for­wards had Bar­ron trem­bling, while their great pass­ing, han­dling and speed in the back line fin­ished off Bar­ron.

The 26-0 score­lines showed the Raiders can play as well in the wet as the dry.

The un­der 14s had to win their semi fi­nal to have a chance at the fi­nal.

With highs and lows in the game, most of the boys pulled to­gether and dom­i­nated the field but could not fin­ish off the op­po­si­tion. They ended up los­ing a close game.

Full credit to the boys who played a good game.

The Raiders play away next week and then the fi­nals are on De­cem­ber 3 at Mann St.
