Un­der-8s

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

UN­DER 8s Crocs’ coach Matt Scott was de­lighted with player num­bers, with 10 en­thu­si­as­tic play­ers light­ing up the Croc Pit on Sun­day morn­ing in front of a packed and vo­cal home crowd.

New sign­ing Hugo “War­rick Cap­per” El­li­son was sen­sa­tional in his first game kick­ing four goals and was well sup­ported by An­gus “Dun­stall” Van Rooyan and Colby “Swan” Tay­lor who man­aged to kicked straight this week with a cou­ple of long bombs.

The three small­est play­ers on the field Hay­den “Hunt” Caswell, Ethan “Baker” Scott and game day cap­tain Kalan “Ricciuto” Poole used their pace well and were all busy weav­ing in and out of traf­fic and open­ing up the play.

Crowd favourites Kai “Hodge” Durie and Sam “Cotchin” Wall pro­vided many run­ning and link­ing pas­sages and even took a cou­ple of hang­ers which ex­cited the home crowd. The ruck work from both Tam “Goodes” Nguyen and Mr Fix It Daniel “Car­razzo” Har­ring­ton was out­stand­ing.

Coach’s awards went to Hugo, Ethan, Daniel and Kalan.
