The Miss Piggies faced up against a very solid looking Queanbeyan team where despite putting in a huge effort the Miss Piggies lost 42 - 7. The Miss Piggies played well in the first half, dominating possession for the first 15 minutes and scoring an early try (by Kate Brown, conversion by Tayla Stanford). However, after countless bone crunching and terrifying encounters Queanbeyan started putting points on the board. The Miss Piggies put in a gallant effort over the 60 minutes but in the end they were out-muscled by a very strong team.
The forwards shone in this game, putting their bodies on the line in tackles, often against much larger opponents. This brave effort was noticed by coach Mags who awarded three points to hard hitting Kate ‘Wakka’ Waterhouse, two points to versatile second rower come breakaway Eve ‘Bean’ Milham and one point to exciting newcomer Kate ‘KB’ Bismire who had a great game in the second row.
The girls awarded players player to Kate ‘Smash’ Needham who played prop in a physical first half before having to come off injured. Kate has been an asset to the team this season showing great leadership amongst the forwards and guidance for the newcomers to the game.
The Miss Piggies have one last competition game to be played next weekend at home against Royals. Kick off will be at 1:15pm followed by the senior men’s semi final match against Taralga at 2.30pm. Come and support these teams as they approach an exciting end to the season
