First comp for un­der-10s

Chinchilla News - - SPORT -

Eight young Chinchilla play­ers are hav­ing a ball at a week-long ju­nior rugby league car­ni­val in Kin­garoy this week.

The 49th an­nual Zone Five Un­der 35kg com­pe­ti­tion kicked off on Sunday with games run­ning through un­til this Fri­day. The play­ers are com­pet­ing as part of the West­ern Downs Ju­nior Rugby League team, which en­com­passes play­ers from Wan­doan, Miles, Tara, Jandowae and Chinchilla.

Mum Terri Pal­lisier said it’s been a great few days.

“All of the boys are hav­ing fun and they’re play­ing re­ally well to­gether,” she said.

“We in the West­ern Downs don’t ac­tu­ally keep score of our games so it’s the first op­por­tu­nity for these kids to be in a com­pe­ti­tion where they keep score but also be so en­thu­si­as­tic about play­ing well, play­ing with a good spirit and just be­ing re­ally fun.”

Pal­lisier ex­tended a thank you to coach Kel­son Gaske and team man­ager Paul Gun­nis for their ef­forts.
