The first-grade men finished their match with a frustrating draw, the final score 28 all. Four converted tries by the Owls men were unfortunately responded to by Wests as they capitalised on kickable penalties. The club celebrated two of its favourite sons on the Saturday as club stalwarts Max Bode and Callum Richardson played their 100th club match and 50th first grade match respectively.
Both Women’s sides picked up the points on a scheduled bye.
In second grade, the drought was broken with a win against Wests 34-22. With the scores locked at 17 all at halftime, the game was there for the taking. The Owls pack began to capitalise on set piece dominance and released super-sub Sam Lindeman for two late tries. Skipper Angus Whittle had a memorable performance scoring a try and kicking four conversions. After the game he told our Owls reporter in the sheds, “I love Owls.”
The Colts men snuck away with a win against Wests, the score at full-time 24-22. The typically stout Colts defence was tested by the visitors; however, the ability to score had not left the young hooters. Forwards Anthony Sloane, Callum Conroy, and Max Young managed to find the try line. Issy Vaili recorded another solid performance scoring a try and converting two.
Third Grade picked up the points on a scheduled bye.
The Fourth graders echoed the results on first grade, drawing with RMC 29 all. A standout performance by the human pinball Rob Leane helped the Frothies battle against a very fit and physical RMC outfit.
The Filthy Fifths were handed a tough loss by Wests 17-47. No further comment.
