It was a brisk but sunny day in Canberra where Jindabyne U10's took on St Eddies who were in third place. We received the ball first and it was an evenly contested game . After some good plays and good handling we scored under the posts and a great conversion to put us 7-0 then we were pushed back with some great defence but recovered well with another try but missed the conversion . St Eddies recovered well with a try and converted to make it 12-7 at half time. Jindy kicked off and tackled well and put plenty of pressure on scrum. With some great team effort we scored again and converted. With the final score Jindabyne 26 St Eddies 7. We had an awesome win and with this great win man of the match was awarded to Zach Williams and most improved to Cooper Young.

JINDABYNE GLORIA JEANS UNDER 11 PIGLETS
On a cold and frosty morning the snow just melted in time for the under 11's to play at home against Uni-Norths.
Uni-Norths arrived with only eight players so in the spirit of the game the Piglets lent them four of our players. Quick early tries saw Jindabyne get out to a substantial lead.
The second half saw a further rotation of players and a couple of good tries by the Jindabyne players for Uni-Norths. Uni-Norths have struggled this year so they were very appreciative of the good sportsmanship in helping them get some points on the board and raise their morale. Thankyou to all our players who helped out Uni-Norths on the day. Next week the under 11's have a BYE but look forward to their last game of the round against Marist in Canberra on August 16.
A great effort and well deserved win to Jindabyne.
Final score Jindabyne 44 - Uni-Norths 22 .
Under 12 Piglets proved to be a dominant side against St Eddies on Saturday in a home game winning 41-0 .The Player of The Day was awarded to Darcy Alexander but all players contributed to a great winning result.
