Vs Nelson Bay at the Bay 12/07/14
A sunny day but with a cold blustery wind favouring the team running right to left looking from the change room side. The ground was in good condition.
We were short of numbers across all of the grades today. There were injuries and players unavailable in Premier 1 and Premier 2 which put a drain on our player stocks. In Premier 3 we probably thought we were always going to win and were lucky to get away with a 10-8 victory.
Players points went 3 to Ed Todd-Jones, 2 to Guy Forstick and 1 to Sudsy.
We lost this game 22-12 in what was actually a fairly even game. The boys played well, and felt that they were unlucky to lose. There was no lack of effort and the players were disappointed. We all thought they should have won.
Players points went 3 to Chris Wadsworth 2 to Connor Gralton and 1 to Tim Poese.
This was a side really hit by injuries to the extent that we had 10 players out of the side which beat Wanderers last weekend. The game ended up a 20 all draw but a pleasing thing was that our 20 points came from 4 tries. Five players from Premier 3 had to back up and run on and at one stage we had 3 to 4 colts on the field as well. So all in all maybe not a bad effort.
Players points went 3 to Ben McCloy 2 to Mark Peteru and 1 point to Tim Poese. Note Tim got a point in Colts and a point in P2.
We won this game 43-19. This was especially pleasing because the Bay were on a roll and when they’re on a roll they’re always hard to beat at home. We had Lanzo, Mick and Andy out today but thankfully we had good replacements in PeeWee, Tyler and Gilko.
Players points went 3 to Mark Butler 2 to Va and 1 to Tyler.
