Our first home games of the season and it was great to see a lot of new faces at Evatt Park. As usual, our under 6s provided the early entertainment in their matches. The under 7s continued their good start to the season with a comprehensive win, with our under 8s having the Bye.
In their first game of the season, the under 9s put up a brave effort before being narrowly beaten by Renown. In the under 10s, our Greens put in a brave display against the highly rated Brighton side and the Golds bounced back from a narrow loss in week 1 to record a victory. The under 11 Greens shook off their opening loss with a solid victory against Renown and the Golds continued their improved start to the season with a win over Brighton. Our under 12s finished things off with a big win against Renown.
Undoubtedly, the highlight of the day was our under 19s team who faced off against Renown at OKI Jubilee Stadium. In a clinical display, Penshurst ran in 8 tries in a runaway 46-0 victory. Special mention to BJ Latimer who had a personal haul of 22 points for the game.
On Sunday our under 15s, with only 12 players, put in a courageous effort to be beaten by Arncliffe. The boys never stopped trying and the scoreline did not reflect the true nature of the game. In the next match, our under 17s started strongly only to trail at the break. With less than 10 minutes to go and trailing 24-4, our boys went on a scoring spree which resulted in a 24-all draw. The under 14s and 21s had the Bye
