Another season over

Disappointing end to the season after only completing one set of six in the first 23 minutes and holding the ball for a total of either 15 or 17 tackles (depending on who you speak to ) we were down 26-0

We scored a good try just before half time to be down 26-6

2nd half started exactly like the first and we were in strife again

Final score 42-16 when we held on to the ball we scored twice to get back to 30-16 with about 13 to go

Sad way to go out with unarguably our worst performance of the season in the biggest game

Just to add I have mentioned about Valleys half back before , he scored the last try from 70 out and we had him boxed within about a metre of the sideline

This kid is an absolute gun player , he never panicked , just bang bang bang and then beat another 4 cover defenders on his way to score under the post

Yeah, last game in the morning, at least one down, but will probably run out a couple short as they have most games because of the silly splitting of a decent squad. Not easy for a team of newbies that are also the smallest overall in the comp, still they have had a go and enjoyed themselves, which is all that really matters.

The young bloke has progressed okay in his first year, backing up for the 9's at their gala day last week, where they went through the preliminaries undefeated, losing the final with a missed conversion after the siren that would have brought up a draw.
