Match Results & Reports from Round 1

Some fantastic results at the weekend and a wonderful foundation to continue in to next weekend’s clash at Viking Park.

The club would like to thank Penrith Emus for making their way down the highway and we look forward to the return leg later in the season.

Match Report – Colts v Penrith 15 th April 23 (D. Bowran)
An excellent start to the season for the 2023 Colts.
Bonus point winners 50-19 at fulltime, they displayed patience and maturity in attack. The forwards dominated against a much larger Penrith pack and delivered good, clean ball allowing the backline time and space to put on a dazzling display of running rugby culminating in eight tries evenly scored
between forwards and backs.

Defence will be the focus at training this week with some extra attention and effort on our realignment in defence after letting in a few tries we shouldn’t have, and chop tackling those bigger opposition players.

3 – Liam Van DeMere
2 – Sam Cantrill
1 – Tom Hayes


Match Report – 2nd Grade v Penrith (S. Henry)

57-0 to open our account in style against a physical Penrith team.

The boys turned up well prepared and took the enthusiasm into the game. While the 9 tries (6 converted) was a great effort, the fact that we were able to keep them to zero was the bigger achievement.

Tries to Tom H, Tom I, Sam A, Ryan M, Sam M x 2, Liam M and Sammy S, were capped by 5 conversions to Will B and 1 from Liam M.

We played direct and well structured footy, with our set piece being strong. Off the back of Will B’s boot we were able to play from good field position. The defensive effort was massive and it was easy to see that each player was there to put in the effort for the team. This was boosted by the effort put in of our reserves who didn’t let the intensity drop till the final whistle. Good effort boys, lets back it up against Tuggeranong.


Excellent first up result for the Mighty Fourths against Goulburn. With it still not clear we had a team on Saturday morning, we only got on the field with a number of third grade players starting who then backed up to start for Third Grade.

Lots of thanks go to Justin Vandenbergh, Sam Ross, Zac Ross and Bryce Keane who played significant minutes in Fourth Grade before starting Third Grade.

Some fine attacking moves combined with some solid defensive efforts enabled Royals to start quickly before settling into a grind it our affair with a Goulburn team that was physical in the tackle and at the breakdown.

Great efforts from Jamie Anderson, Justin Vandenbergh, Rob Singh, Lachlan
Russell, the Ross Bros and Bryce Keane along with a welcome back performance from Craig McMahon combined to ensure a quick start was converted into a five tries to three win. Half time score was 26 to 5 with the final score being 31 to 17.
