The annual team photos were scheduled before the Bowra boys took to the field against the undefeated Nambucca Heads Blue team. With all the boys more than ready to roll we were just waiting for a one more. Noa McDonald. Karen Perkins was eager to assemble the boys while still waiting for Noa, then he arrived, hair slicked back, nothing out of place. Before we knew it the photos were over. Game time.
Levi Fuller had his first charge into enemy territory. Casey Lawson followed with a perfect run around and confused the heads boys. Jacob Rowlings just toyed with the defence. Jacob went onto score 2 tries, and tackled very well. Darcy Milne scooted from dummy half on the last tackle only to be denied scoring his first try.
Beau Harper played his usual solid game. Beau was having a few of the boys over for a sleepover which inspired him. Ben Ennis is starting to click at first receiver directing the players around the field. Ben said mum could not make it as she was still a bit hungover from the night before.
Noa McDonald proved the difference at first receiver marshaling the troops left and right. Macca, Noa's dad our league safe decided to play golf at the last minute. This did not worry Noa. Macca did not make the cut at golf.
Jonah Cohen was voted the most photogenic player on the day. Jonah also played his best game of the year. Jye Howle had a case of the dropsy's. Jye soon rallied to run deep into the opposition territory. Dominic Rouse continues to improve every week, especially with ball in hand.
Harry "JF" Kennedy has been working on his leg drive at training. This was evident on game day. H was charging up field with every run. Kobi "give it" Toomey just gets better every game with some damaging runs. Kobi makes his tackles count and also scoring three tries on the day.
The boys and I would like to pass on our condolences to Aidan Hillary Whalen and family after the passing of his father Tom. A big thanks to Karen Perkins for the photo shoot. Knock em down Bowra.
