Blues battle Cabonne

Hansen Plumbing Senior League Tag will take on Cabonne in the junior league grand final on Saturday after defeating Red Bend at Condobolin last weekend.

After only a couple of minutes Jorja Simpson crossed for the first try of the day which was converted by Tess Woods.

The girls were really digging deep in defence, it was from this pressure that the Blues had the ball in good field position in which Jorja Simpson crossed for her second try which was also converted.

Red Bend crossed for their first try just before half time to have the score 12 - 4 at the break.

Parkes continued the pressure on Red Bend and crossed the try line again, this time to Teagan Smede, the try was again converted by Tess Woods which took the final score to 18-4.

Try Scorers - Jorja Simpson x 2, Teagan Smede.
