THE un­der-9s con­tinue to im­prove, post­ing a re­sound­ing 38–10 win on Satur­day at the Proser­pine Sports Com­plex.

The Proser­pine Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Rugby League team won its en­counter with Norths largely due to a res­o­lute de­fen­sive ef­fort and a will­ing­ness to throw the ball around in attack.

In other scores, the un­der-10s, led by Ryan Donnelly, lost 30–18 de­spite a determined ef­fort while the 11s were nar­rowly edged out 26–20 in a close match.

The game of the day came in the un­der-12s, where the Brah­mans came back to split the points.

Whit­sun­day fought re­siliently to clinch a 24–24 draw against Norths de­spite trail­ing for much of the match.

The un­der-13s dom­i­nated their Norths’ ri­vals for a 46–6 tri­umph while the 14s pul­verised Devils in their en­counter to win by more than 50 points.

The un­der-15s also joined the win­ners’ cir­cle, pre­vail­ing 27–12 on Satur­day morn­ing.

Norths for­feited the un­der-16s clash, gift­ing the Brah­mans the points.

This week­end all teams will take to the Mackay Ju­nior Rugby League Fields for a round of matches. The next round of home games will take place on May 30, when the club hosts Broth­ers.
