All games in the St George and Balmain districts have been cancelled this weekend due to ground closures caused by the wet weather.
We hope you have an enjoyable and safe long weekend!
Below are the tables for both the Junior and Senior Club Championships as at the completion of 9 weeks of competition.
For Penshurst RSL, this is a tremendous effort, especially in the Junior Championship where we are currently in second place, only 7.50 points off the lead. This is by far our most successful position for a number of years. In the Seniors, we are in 8th position - unfortunately our under 19s are not included because they are playing out of district.
This is a reflection of the efforts and performances of everyone in the club - players, coaches, team staff, club volunteers and families and supporters. Congratulations to everyone and keep up the good work. Go the Rissoles !!!
For the long weekend, we have a double header at Evatt Park again. All but our under 6 Golds and under 18s are at home. The under 19s do not play as the Souths comp has a break over this weekend.
Parents help in the canteen, on the BBQ, setting up and cleaning up the fields is needed to give our volunteers much needed support, and perhaps even a break !! This is our third double header in a row and your help is greatly appreciated.
Another double header at Evatt Park again saw some great football played by the boys in the Green and Gold, as well as their opponents - from under 6s through to under 18s.
On Saturday, in the Minis, the under 6 Greens showed some great form for a good win, the under 6 Golds went down narrowly away from home, the under 7s lent some players to the opposition for a run despite a forfeit and the under 8s won an absolute thriller.
In the Mod grades, the under 9 Greens had a strong win, the under 9 Golds battled bravely against a better opponent, the under 10 Greens' strong defence secured them the local derby against the under 10 Golds, the under 11s recorded another big win, as did the under 12s. The only International team to play on Saturday was the under 16s who travelled away to be out enthused by the team with whom they were previously sharing the competition lead.
On Sunday, the under 13s won a tight battle, the under 14s produced a big form reversal to upset the competition leaders (the best Penshurst RSL effort of the weekend), the under 18s displayed great defensive intensity to nearly upset the competition leaders and the under 19s retained a share of the competition lead with another strong victory.
In the week 9 draw, all bar 3 of our teams are at home at H.V. Evatt Park this weekend. Only the under 6 Golds, under 16s and under 19s are on the road.
This is another double header for us at Evatt Park. Again we need assistance from our parents - in the canteen, on the BBQ, setting up and cleaning up the park - particularly in the hour before your son's game. All help is appreciated.
After a full weekenD of fixtures at HV Evatt Park which included Craig Rimmer Mod Carnival matches, we are pleased to be able to announce that both our Under 10 Greens and Under 11s won both finals played this morning at Hurstville Oval. Congratulations to all our boys!
While our mighty mini teams were involved in absorbing struggles, our international teams struggled with the exception of our 13s & 19s who performed well and brought home the bacon.
