PORT City Breakers and Camden Haven Eagles took to Woods Street on Saturday morning in under-6 weekend footy action.
Other age groups up to the U11s also played while U7s and U12s had a bye. The Camden Haven Eagles juniors were fast in attack and fantastic in defence. They put into practice skills they have learnt through training.
U6s played games against the Port City Breakers to Lake Cathie and locally in Laurieton. The club said the little footy stars were strong on the field.
“They ran the field fast, passed balls to their team mates and scored some tries,” a spokesperson from the club said.
“Some of our players have never played rugby league before and have never even held a football.
“They turn up to weekly training sessions to practice drills and ball skills.
“These were exercised on the field, as we noticed over the weekend.”
On Friday night U14s and U16s took on the Taree Panthers.
The games brought in the crowd with lots of support from Laurieton.
A spokesperson from the club said it was ‘mind blowing’ to see how many supporters and local spectators were interested in watching.
The U14s came away with a win. Although the U16s went down they kept up with Taree the entire game.
Canteen manager Racheal Hogan has been in operation for Thursday night training through to games on the weekend. All profits go back into providing for juniors.
The Camden Haven Eagles thanked everyone for supporting the juniors in the first round of the season.
