Under 5s Match Report for Friday 18 July - Palmerston vs. Casuarina
Update by Tracey Reid, Under 5 Manager

Palmerston vs Casuarina Under 5's. July 18 Rugby Match, Rugby Park Marrara

Coach:- Cody Akers

Players:- Zeb Holt, Peyton Reid, Alex McKenzie and Izzy Taylor

The awesome foursome was unstoppable this week.  Alex ran down the field, side stepped is opponent to score the first try of the game. Throughout the game, it was noticeable that everyone's kicking skills has improved.  The balls at kick off made some great heights and distances. Great to watch.

The second try came from Zeb Holt who ran the entire length of the field to score his try.  Its evident all the players are gaining confidence to run forward toward the try line, not backwards.  The basic skills and concepts of rugby are beginning to be seen.

We saw some excellent sportsmanship from Alex on Friday night.  Alex accidently stepped on his opponent's fingers during a tackle.  After the opponent was attended to, Alex went over to ensure his opponent was ok.  Great Work Alex!!!

Peyton and Ize's defence was fantastic.  Keep up the great work girls.

Try Scorers this week were; Zeb Holt 3 tries, Alex McKenzie 2 tries.  Palmerston 5 tries, Casuarina 4 tries.  

Cody is doing a fantastic job in coaching our kids.  Whilst the training sessions are fun, our kids are learning the fundamentals of rugby.  Keep up the good work Cody.
