It was a great effort by all Dragons who ensured the club had another very successful home game’s day, according to Eumundi Dragons club president Doug Toms.
“Once again you have demonstrated what being a Dragon is all about – enjoying the game for what it is and always striving to be that little bit better every time you take to the field, he said. “The Dragon’s name continues to be respected by all other clubs on the coast whether after a win or a loss.”

The Brothers team bought their A-Game and ran away with a convincing win, but the Dragons should feel proud of their efforts. Jai Clifford was awarded Man of the Match and Craig Yaxley was awarded for strong leadership.
With another week of solid training, we are bound to see this team getting stronger and more cohesive.

U7’s Match Report by U7s’ Manager Jeremy Mansell
The U7’s had another great game on Saturday against a very willing Brother’s Team. Both teams showed some very good passing and support play giving them plenty of go forward. The Eumundi U7’s are improving every week with great coaching leading to awesome defense and support play. Maya had a Player of the Week performance with her breaks down the sideline and efforts making touches. The rest of the team supported her really well with Jax, Zach Henry and Johnny making a lot of touches and slowing the Brothers momentum. Nixon and Tristan found direct routes to the try line with great support from CJ. Well done U7’s
