Rd 1 v Erina

Result:  St Edwards 18 - Erina 12

A great start to the season.  All the boys played well to record a true TEAM win.  The statistics sheet showed that EVERYBODY put in the hard yards today.  Our three tries were all the result of great lead up play in the 3 or 4 plays prior.

The tackle count was nice and even, with eveyrbody getting stuck in.  Jacob and Jon topped the count with 10 tackles each.  Hit ups were equally impressive with Jacob, Bryce and Elijah each recording 4 big ones.

Erina never gave up and came from behind to level the scores at 12 all with about 3 minutes to go.  It would have been easy for the boys to drop their heads on such a hot day, but they didn't.  Instead, they stuck to the game plan and went over in the corner with 1 minute to go after a well weighted kick from Jon and a great pick up by Liam.  Harry Barnes then slotted over a conversion from 10 metres in.

Try scorers:  Bryce, Jacob, Liam
Conversions:  Flynn, Jon, Harry

3 points:  Elijah    2 Points:  Bryce    1 Point:  Jacob and Dale

Happy Birthday Flynn!!
