U7: The boys played well against Valleys Roosters. They played hard, tackled hard and had fun in good conditions.
U8: There was a solid defensive effort by the young Hawks against Valleys as they start to work more independently.
Under 10: The team rocked up to the Herb Steinhardt Oval in good spirits and let the good vibes roll over the next few hours. Each week the 24 players are becoming closer and trusting in each other on the paddock.
U11: The defence is great and the attack feeds off it. It’s hard to point out one player when all 17 played so well.
U12: Another great game by the boys, winning 4-32 against Valleys. Impressive tackling by Kaden, Connor, Joshua and Logan. Zach had some great runs in attack and there were great offloads from Joshua and Noah. Tries to Caleb (2), Noah, Kaden (2) & Zach (2). Conversions by Hayden and Blake.
U11/12 Development Cup: There is no better reward as a coach than to hear the war cry sung at the end of Saturday’s game. There was a smile on every player’s face after their first win of the season.
U13: The side bounced back from their loss to Souths last week with a come-from-behind victory over Valleys. Trailing 10-6 at half time the young Hawks ran out winners 18-14.

Chad, Matt, Dylan and Jaiman scored tries and Lincoln a goal.
