U-14s turn game around
THE Under-14 Raiders have shown they can turn their game around and play like they played the first game of the season.
In a well-structured game against a much bigger and new side to the competition, JCU/ Southside, our boys showed them what they have to do to be contenders in rugby union.
Outstanding efforts from Glen McFarlane on 3 points, Henry Miller on 2 points and Karl Hinz earning 1 point.
The rest of the team played with great skill and determination making it difficult to pick the 3, 2, 1 players. The end score for the night was 50 to 10. Friday night saw the Barron Trinity Under-10 team fall victim to the mighty Raiders.
The Raiders made every post a winner with strength and intensity in their defence, then combining speed and teamwork in attack.
All players put in a full effort, showing the crowd that they have become a true team and work together.
The boys crossed for five tries with only one conversion, and kept Barron scoreless, producing a final score of 27 to 0.
Next week is a bye, but the boys will be training as per usual to keep the team on top of their game.
With only two weeks of competition left the boys have to fight hard to be grand final contenders.
This week sees the U-10 and U-12 with a bye while U-14 travel to St Andrews for a game against Wanderers. The last week of rounds has all teams playing at JCU on November 29.
The finals rounds will be played in Cairns on December 6 for all teams.
