Junior Dolphins showing improvement
JUNIOR rugby union:
UNDER-9 Noosa Fins
OMG what an awesome round for the U9 Fins: Mud and rain and two games of footy.
First game against St. Andrews and the forwards Alex, Kellen, Flynn and Cody worked hard on pushing over those rucks with an even score against Saints.
That was our warmup,. All boys put in a huge effort against Brothers with tries all round. Conor was involved and Hamish made an outstanding solid effort which he has worked on the last few weeks.
Dominoes Superstar this week: Hamish Payne.
UNDER-11 Noosa Reds
Grammar 29V Noosa Reds 14.
The first defeat of the season for the Reds came from a slick, talented and well prepared Grammar team.
The boys now know exactly where the bar is set.
Two excellent team tries from Noosa were not enough as Grammar punished any small mistakes with end to end tries and dominance at the breakdown lead to a wealth of possession for the home side.
The Noosa boys made their coaching panel proud as they fought to the final whistle.
A passionate Noosa Reds team who were visibly upset with the result but will bounce back and take to the training field on Friday armed with a list of work-ons that will no doubt improve their chances next time.
Dominos pizza player of the day was Charlie Harmer.
