The McPhersons Under 7's took on Dubbo St Johns Blue, with the bigger, faster and very skilful Dubbo side proving to be a handful.
Our rampaging forward Beau Thompson caused the opposition some problems and barged his way over for three tries while Lebron continues to improve and made a few strong runs.
Bill O'Bryan and Oscar Gosper are growing in confidence and are becoming more willing to run the ball and tackle with each game. Saxon Gosper and Beau Thompson made some great tackles and chased hard all game.
Jaxon Ross scored the try of the day beating the entire Dubbo team to score in the corner while our man of the match goes to Lebron, who made at least 10 very brave runs.

Another great run by Alana and she offloaded to Meg Mahon who scored under the goal posts for her first try for the season.
Meg's twin brother Bill did a great chip and chase on a fifth tackle but was too short getting to the ball though centre Malia Morrison got a nice quick pass and ran through St Johns to score her first try for the season.

This didn't deter the Blues and a quick dummy half scoot George Thomas saw himself over the line and the conversion was successful from brother Lachlan.
The team started to settle down and defend well; particularly Hamish McGrath, Ryan Cox, Jaylin Moran and Ryan (Rambo) Whitney.
This strong defence soon saw the ball back in the hands of the Blues and a fast moving Jaylin Moran hit the turf under the posts with another successful conversion by Linc James taking the score to 12-0.
The Raiders were stoic, with some intense defence after halftime but Riley Fernando showed why got the nickname 'Bulldog'- throwing himself into everything with gusto.
Kailen Butt is constantly improving week by week and in her first year of tackle she starting to show the boys how it's done.

The K & H Earthmoving Under 12s came away with a 28 point loss against Cobar in Dubbo on the weekend.
Despite the loss, the team can hold their heads high; they gave it a good shot with some great defence by the Cronin brothers (Tommy and Riley) and some awesome runs up the middle by Matty Skinner.
Rhys Thompson flicked some good passes out of first receiver which really confused the opposition and a great try was scored by Taj Lovett after he made a quick break down the right hand side to score.
A big thanks to the Under 10 champions Khan, Aiden, Jett and Joel for stepping up to play; with Tyson Carruthers and Casey Eshman coming off injured the extra players were appreciated!
The Parkes Under 14's took on a big, solid Cobar side and were going to have to defend well and make their tackles count.

Joe was through to score again after a Cobar error gave Parkes possession. The conversion was unsuccessful taking the score to 22-2 at half-time.
It didn't take long for Parkes to score in the second half, when a kick from Toby Cox hit the posts bouncing back not only in the field of play but into Jack Milne's hands for a try.
Strong defence continued to keep Cobar from scoring with Ash Haywood, Daniel Hando, Oliver Thomas, Jack Jessop, Rhys James and Jack Milne relentless until possession was returned to Parkes.
