Cats up­set Lions

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

Both Ruther­glen se­nior teams had very good wins against Wah­gun­yah on Satur­day.

Af­ter a long pre-sea­son it was great to see the play­ers run out and play some very good foot­ball.

The new guys all played their part and made an im­pres­sion at their new home.

A mix­ture of ex­pe­ri­ence and youth blended in well, with one se­nior player in par­tic­u­lar still hav­ing wed­ding bells ring­ing in his ears.

Credit to coaches Tom Ren­shaw, Matt Far- ru­gia, Damien Wil­son and their as­sis­tants for get­ting the Cats to this point and hav­ing the play­ers ready for a suc­cess­ful year ahead.

Coach Wil­son con­tin­ued on where he left off last year with a bril­liant per­for­mance across the ground and fin­ish­ing with eight goals.

Even the fi­nals spe­cial­ist Tyson Ne­an­der found the goals, so early in the year.
