Junior Gremlins step up to battle
THE Stanthorpe Junior Gremlins travelled to Clifton on Saturday in wet and cold conditions.
The day started well with the under-11s running out convincing winners 20-0.
The team tackled well all day and took their chances with the ball to score some excellent tries.
Most of the team then backed up to play U12s.
The U11s started in brilliant style, scoring some long range tries to Cordell Lane and Lachie Hendry.
Overall their defence remained solid most of the day but Wattles were able to hit back with a couple of easy tries due to lapses in concentration.
Credit must go to the couple of under 12s for again helping out their club mates in fielding a full side.
In the second half the under 14s showed great commitment in defence with Tom Jensen, Kai Robertson, Dave Musumeci and PJ Bonner leading the way.
The under-16s also played in difficult wet and difficult conditions on the day.
Overall they played good strong football against a side with a complement of 26 players to choose from. At half-time it was even with the scores 12-8 to Wattles.
It remained tight until the last 10 minutes when Wattles scored two late tries dominating possession after errors by the Stanthorpe boys.
Overall a great day for the junior Gremlins who are looking forward to travelling to Tenterfield on the weekend to take on the Border Bears. See coaches for game times.
