Ju­nior Raiders ready for sign-on WFC thrashes front-run­ners

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


WHIT­SUN­DAY Foot­ball Club’s (WFC) pre­mier men have con­tin­ued their late­sea­son resur­gence by is­su­ing a past­ing to the Lions at the week­end.

Last year’s grand fi­nal­ists led just 1-0 at half­time, be­fore run­ning in a mirac­u­lous five goals in the sec­ond 45 min­utes to thrash the com­pe­ti­tion’s lad­der lead­ers.

The win doesn’t change the team’s lad­der po­si­tion (cur­rently third), how­ever the omi­nous per­for­mance does is­sue a warn­ing to the rest of the com­pe­ti­tion.

In other re­sults, MCL went down to Sa­rina Saints 6-1 while the re­serves ousted Lions 2-1.

This week­end the re­serves and the pre­mier men will re­turn to the Whit­sun­day Sportspark to face Mag­pies, while the pre­mier women hit the road for an en­counter with Lions.


THE Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Rugby Union Club will host its sign-on to­mor­row.

The club is en­cour­ag­ing in­ter­ested ju­niors to at­tend the Whit­sun­day Sportspark from 6pm, ahead of the 10-week sea­son.

Grades are avail­able for un­der-6s, 8s, 10s, 12s, 14s, 16s and 18s and reg­is­tra­tion costs $50 per player.

The night will be about learn­ing the skills of rugby union be­fore fin­ish­ing off the night with Vik­ing Cup games.

Four car­ni­vals have been ar­ranged through­out the sea­son against Mackay, Bur­dekin, cen­tral high­lands and Townsville teams.
