twice cross­ing the try line on both sides of the field only to be tack­led over the side­line.

In the end the Kan­ga­roos were just too good.

All the boys played some great footy at times, with Man of the Match go­ing to Laquan War­rick, with spe­cial men­tion to Ethan, Kane, Brax­ton and Matthew. chance of beat­ing a well-drilled team like the Kan­ga­roos.

At half­time Kan­ga­roos were on top in ev­ery depart­ment and it showed on the score­board.

What hap­pened in the last 20 min­utes showed the crowd how dev­as­tat­ing and cre­ative the Sharks Un­der-10s can be when given the right mo­ti­va­tion.

They came out swing­ing and step­ping their way through the Kan­ga­roos led by Bron­son Ryan and Zac Jenk­ins.

Ray­den Walker came back from in­jury and demon­strated what a lethal run­ner he is by scor­ing a try when it was re­ally needed.

Ma­son Young played an­other steady game giv­ing good ser­vice from dummy half while Brax­ton Wienert and the other Un­der-9s as usual backed up from their game and made great con­tri­bu­tions. Remo Gib­son’s 70m run was one of the high­lights of the game.

When the fi­nal hooter rang Moss­man had run Kan­ga­roos down and won 32-28 which many peo­ple have rated as one of the best games of the year.

The man of the match has to be shared this round be­tween Bron­son Ryan and Zac Jenk­ins. Red­lynch.

With bet­ter ball se­cu­rity the team is now scor­ing a lot of points and their de­fence is rock solid as it has been all year led by man of the match per­for­mances from Pay­ton Adams and Sean De Munk. Both boys are not very big but push them­selves ev­ery week for the team and are re­ally play­ing with a lot of con­fi­dence as is the rest of the side.

The boys next week have a chance to fin­ish the reg­u­lar sea­son un­de­feated but the team’s main goal this sea­son was to make the fi­nal and are happy to have achieved that.

Now fo­cus moves to fi­nals and they know steady im­prove­ment is needed to com­pete with ri­vals
