The Dungog Warriors Under 6s travelled to East Maitland to take on the Griffins on Saturday. The team continues to improve each week and it is great to see all 9 boys getting involved and having a go. All of the team tackled well and ran well, with Alby Dew, Charlie Lovegrove, Izayah Haigh, Billy Hinton, Jack Byron, Harley Hawes, Jordan Longbottom, Robert Edwards and Kobi Jolly all getting involved. Try scorers for the day were Billy Hinton, Charlie Lovegrove and Jordan Longbottom. Great work boys see you at training.
The Warrior’s Under 6 Gold travelled to McKeachie’s Run on Saturday to take on the Red Dogs. Playing with only 6 players the boys once again tried hard and played some great footy. The team, made up of Jordan Longbottom, Albie Dew, Billy Hinton, Jack Byron, Kobie Jolly and Harkley Hawes all ran the ball well and tackled well against a much bigger West Maitland team. Try scorers were Jordan Longbottom and Albie Dew. Well done boys see you at training. Matt Hinton
Dungog Under 6 Gold played their first competition game at Bennett Park vs Kurri Kurri. The boys had great fun and showed plenty of enthusiasm and discipline for a team playing their first game. Harley Hawes started the boys off with some great hard running and managed to score a try of his own. Charlie Lovegrove and Billy Hinton made some good legs tackles during the game and they also scored their first ever tries. Quietly spoken Kobi Jolly and Jordan Longbottom let their footy do all of their talking both crossing under the sticks from long range. Izayah Haigh once again made some great bootlace tackles and scored a great runaway try. Jack Byron soldiered on through sickness to get over the strip for a try as well as making some good tackles. All in all I was very happy with the boys efforts in their first game , with all seven players on the paddock scoring a try each, it will do their confidence the world of good. Go the Warriors, Matt Hinton Coach
