Jnr Raiders show prom­ise

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE UN­DER 12’s Raiders trav­elled to Cairns to play a scratch match against Brothers at short no­tice.

As the boys had no train­ing time be­fore the game, the side was thrown to­gether on the night with some play­ers new to the game and a few play­ers short.

The boys got to busi­ness of play­ing rugby union and did a great job. They went down 2 tries to 1 to a well drilled Brothers side.

Brothers scored right from the kick off and then another not long af­ter. Then the Raiders woke up and dom­i­nated the rest of the game.

It was a great start from the Raiders, with some train­ing it looks like it will be a great sea­son from the Un­der 12’s.

It was too hard to pick a man of the match award as it was a great team ef­fort right across the pad­dock by all play­ers.

We are still look­ing for any in­ter­ested un­der 12 boys out there to join in a great fun sport!

The un­der 14s started the sea­son with a great win 45 to nil against TAS White Rock.

Alot of new boys in the side showed they could adapt to rugby Union quite eas­ily, which made the team look like they had played to­gether for a while.

With a bit more train­ing and knowl­edge they will be in fi­nals con­tention. Clean­ing out at the break down, hard runs, good pass­ing to the backs and dead eye goal kick­ing showed the boys have what it takes to win. The next game is a home game at Raider Park on Fri­day 18 Oc­to­ber. Un­der 12s kick off at 6.30pm against Ather­ton and the U14s fol­low at 7.30pm against Ather­ton.

So Scrum on down and watch the ju­niors play rugby.
