Our first club trial kicked off on Saturday following a successful campaign on and off the field at the Gunnedah 10’s the previous weekend. Prize money for coming first at Gunnedah was substantial but the Gunnedah Club believes that given the outstanding performance of the Beaches Boys both young and old after the game , the Gunnedah Club would have come out in front on the day.
It’s early days and admittedly Kings didn’t have the numbers there that they promised but there’s a bit of excitement in the air at the club.
No names mentioned just yet but we’ve had some good new players arrive and touch wood we don’t seem to have the injury worries that we had last year.
Even after today we can see a pattern of play that Tim’s introduced that will be hard to contain.
We scored 12 tries to 1 and dominated in all facets (except maybe for Paulo’s line out throw).
Player numbers and depth are looking really good and there is going to be genuine competition for spots.
In 3 weeks we play our first comp game against Merewether at Merewether. The next 3 games are Hamilton, Wanderers and Waratah. Some people might say that’s a tough draw first up. Others would say bring it on!
We will have the biggest and most ferocious set of forwards in Newcastle across all grades and heaven help anyone who tries to get in our way.
