City to bush rugby round a suc­cess

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE city to bush round of ju­nior rugby was a roar­ing suc­cess ac­cord­ing to Moss­man Ju­nior Rugby League pres­i­dent Billy Adams.

“There were 29 games, a 100-plus tries and a thou­sand­plus tack­les on two fields from un­der 6s to un­der 17s,” Mr Adams said.

He said that the Moss­man Show­grounds were hum­ming all day with up to 400 peo­ple vis­it­ing the town from around the re­gion.

“Only cer­tain clubs get the bush round each year,” he said ex­plain­ing that it was a round for Moss­man, White Rock, Ivan­hoes and Ma­reeba to duke it out. He was un­will­ing to sin­gle any­one from the vol­un­teers out but said that they had done a tremen­dous job.

“All the vol­un­teers that helped out, they know who they are,” Mr Adams said.

He said he’d like to thank the kids that played “awe­some foot­ball” and the vol­un­teers that kept the event on track for “a fan­tas­tic Satur­day”.

The event went off with­out a hitch with the new Moss­man Ju­nior Rugby League Com­mit­tee putting in a stel­lar ef­fort to or­gan­ise and man­age the first Moss­man city to bush round in a few years.
