U/11 Burraneer Gold 29 Defeated vs Harbord Blue 19
Player of the Match : Joel Kelloway
Both teams provided a very entertaining game of end to end rugby today with lots of commitment in attack and defence. The Burraneer pack were on top of the opposition early through the set piece and very good clean out at the ruck. Despite a try against the run of play and field position the boys came back strong with 2 unanswered tries to Sam and Patrick. The backs were also running onto the ball and making great metres up the middle. Jack continued to cut holes through the defence and make lots of yards down the blind side. The second half was off to a perfect start with a length of the field try to Ryan. A similar strong run to Ryan off the next kick off with excellent support play from the forwards gave us quick recycled ball to a well formed back line led to Joel getting over in the corner. A final try to super sub Seb rounded out our 29 points and importantly our first win for the season. It is great to see the effort and positive attitude the boys displayed from the very first training session culminate in a victory. Joel was the player of match and recipient of the much coveted Wallaby jersey for the week ! Well done lads !
