Here we go again. For the 3rd time this season Bowra played Kempsey but this time its on home turf. Bowra was missing a few key players, Zac Single, Rhys Ballard & Blake Sampson, all away on holidays. It was a tight & sometimes torrid game with both teams scoring entertaining tries. Kempsey led at halftime 10-8 & looked to have the match won with 7 minutes to go. But Bowra dug deep & scored to level the scores at 14 all. Then with 2 mins left on the clock the ball was spun out the backline to the dangerous Hudson Garzoli. Hawke turned on the "after burners" & sprinted all the way to score underneath the posts. You little beauty!!! Fulltime Bowra 20 Kempsey 14.
Special mention this week:
Bailey Hicks scored a try with his strength & sheer pace. Must get the ball more.
Caleb Wassens superb game again. Would not have won without Wasso. Attack & especially his defence (great technique) is brilliant.
Jacob Moore's tackling was superb this week. Keep getting involved Jacob.
Tom Keough came on dummy half & was instrumental to Bowra's great comeback. Some slick passing & sharp little runs got his team going.
Oshay Tyerman was outstanding & his never give in attitude lifted his teammates. Looked a better player when he was passing & putting players into gaps. Saved the best for last. This boy is only a little fella but by geeze he's a goer. When he wasn't scoring tries he was saving them. Brings down much much bigger players with his courageous tackling. Always something happening when he touches the ball.
He's a leader. He's a mate. He's our Captain. He's Finn Stephens.
HOORAY UP THE TIGERS , HOORAY UP THE TIGERS, WHERE THE MIGHTY TIGERS. ROAR!!!!!!
