Under 10's played against Burgmann, who were obviously keen to play as they arrived at the John Connors Oval 1.5 hours before kickoff. With a reshuffled forward pack, the Piglets took the game to Burgmann from the start, out muscling and overpowering their pack. Great teamwork this week lead to the Piglets playing the game of the season so far and really showing what they are capable of. Unfortunately after a fantastic game the Piglets went down 35-31. Tries went to Brock Freeburn 1, Thomas Old 1, Patrick Broe 3 and 3 conversions. Player of the day went to Zach Williams and Coaches Choice to Thomas Old.
Royal arrived short of numbers so in the true spirit of the game we lent them players. The first half saw Jindabyne score freely dominating play.
The second half Royals came back strongly to score a few times but Jindabyne 11's hung on for a well earned win. Thankyou to the Royals coach for his post match talk to our boys thanking them for their help and congratulating them on their sportsmanship and positive play.
The opposition Coach went on to award our own Ky Clare with the "Royals Best tackling award" for his efforts for Royals in the second half.
Thankyou to Izac Coxon, Paddy Byrne, Ky Clare, Patrick Pendergast and Noah Pilkington who volunteered to play for the opposition and help out Royals on the day.
Under 12's travelled to Canberra to play Grammar. 'The Flying Giraffe' Beau Langdon did some nice running managing to score two tries for the team. We had a good game with some great team work taking place nearly scoring a couple of more times but just couldn't get over that line. Bryce Robinson was named Player of the Day.
