JUNIOR COACHES COMMENTS
Friday 1 June | U17's Avoca Beach vs Gosford
"This week's game we took on the 2017 Premiership winners, Avoca in what was a very physical encounter. From the onset, Gosford's Forwards were dominate in both the scrums and rucks, and our ability to recycle the ball was exceptional. However, Avoca looked extremely sharp when they moved the ball to their fast moving, agile backs out wide. Fortunately, our scrambling defence was up to the challenge. At the half time break, Avoca was leading 12 - 10. The break allowed the boys to regather our thoughts and focus on our game plan. Our relentless pressure paid off, forcing an error form Avoca and getting over the line for the only try in the second half.
Best on park were Connor, Casey and Tappers.
Final Score: Gosford 17- Avoca 12" - Steve Keiler
Saturday 2 June | at Avoca Beach
U7's - "Under 7s this week braved the sea side chill out at Avoca. Playing on a smaller field than we were used to, in which didn't really give the kids to much chance to shine. However, it was maximum effort from them all, with Claire leading the charge on both attack and defence, she was our player of the day. A satisfying, well rounded effort from them all.
U8's | "Another fantastic performance from our little devils against a team that is always very strong. Leading from the front was Nat with some strong defence and counterattacking darts through the middle. Saint orchestrated some great attack with a slick runaround move to go with his cover defence. The whole team performed well and came out on top 8-1. Summing it up was a comment by an Avoca parent in the car park “they’re a very good team aren’t they!” Well done guys!!! 😈" - Tony Willis

U11's | "Under 11’s lost 30-5 against Avoca, with the score line not reflecting our domination of the scrum and the breakdown. Positive result for the boys without taking home the win. Best on ground Gwynn “G-boy” Goforth, Obi Huntley and Isiaia “ Nuke” Baker." - Mal Spinks
