Report by Nick Middleton Team Manager Under 9’s.
In the 2nd Round of the season, the Cottesloe U9’s played against a University team that was again busting at the seams with numbers and also size.
Our nine proud Cottesloe boys played their hearts out against a team that had experience at the Under 9 level. The boys toiled all day and were solid at the break down, however the University boys proved to be a little stronger than our guys. In saying that, this is only the second game of contact rugby that these boys have played and will learn a lot from this game.
Some stand out players from the game were Billy Browne (once again), Captain this game, Jordan Middleton, who wasn’t afraid to go into contact and make some tackles, Harry Unstead for his hard work and great tackling late in the game when the boys were shattered.
All in all, the boys really enjoyed the game and as manager of the team, I am really proud of the boys and their commitment to play rugby. With a good training session this Thursday night, the boys will be ready to take on their next opponent on Saturday morning.
