A great wet and wintry day for rugby as the under 12 boys headed west to take on Melton. Having to kick off and defend against a much bigger side resulted in a very early try by Melton. Our boys woke up and found their feet and realised that they could put pressure on Melton and cause them to make mistakes. From then on Maroondah/ Northerns worked hard to get the ball.
A hard slog for Maroondah/Northerns, but a great game to watch, with both sides displaying excellent rugby. Melton eventual winners 7 tries to 2.
The coaches award this week, a $25 voucher from our sponsor The Local Burger Company, went to Alex Roberts for an individual piece of brilliance which saw him step the entire opposition gaining about 50 metres before being brought down.
