Ju­nior Raiders star in Mackay

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY’S ju­nior Raiders have flexed their mus­cle against the re­gion’s best young­sters at the week­end.

Satur­day saw the Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Rugby Union Club travel to Quarry Hill for games against Kut­tabul, Slade Point, Brothers, Ci­ties and Mackay.

Scores weren’t recorded on the day while Queens­land Reds’ play­ers Jamie-Jerry Taulagi and Chris Feauai-Sau­tia were also in attendance.

Koby John­son, Jessie Nicholson and Evan Beale led the way for the un­der-6s while the un­der-8’s matches saw Troy Briskie, Zach Teakle and Keenan Coet­zee star.

The un­der-10 Greens were well rep­re­sented by Louie Archer, Tal­lon Della and Macauly Wake while Ethan Hoff­man, Camp­bell Wilson and Re­gin Pratt stole the show for the Whites.

Lach­lan Skead, Jack Ryan and Con­nor Spence had strong games for the un­der-12s while Ben Cor­nish, Aden Spence and Jack Kearns starred for the un­der-14s.

This week­end the Raiders will host teams from Mackay on Fri­day night and Satur­day af­ter­noon at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark.

The un­der-14s and 16s will take to the field on Fri­day night while un­der-6s-12s will get their chance on Satur­day against two Mackay rep­re­sen­ta­tive out­fits.
