U10s Match Report by Team Manager Pamela Campbell Jones
Two half games in Maleny for the U10 Dragons this weekend. Firstly, against the Saints and the team was showing some good structure. The forwards were contesting the ruck and our backs had good positional play. The Dragons were taking and making plenty of tackles and it was a tight game with each side scoring a couple of tries. A try in the last minute saw the Saints take home the win.
In the second game against Brothers, the Dragons played well without subs. Again, there were plenty of tackles being made, some very strong scrums from the Dragons and good support play. The Brothers ran away with the win. Dragons coaches and supporters were happy with the way the boys played today.
Over the two games, Man of the Match went to Craig and Zach was awarded Most Improved Player.
U7’s match report by Team Manager Jero Mansell
The Dragons U7’s had a very strong game at Maleny against a good Maroochydore side. The Dragons further developed their structured passing which they started last week which is helping with participation, ensuring support play and spreading the team more. Scrums and lineouts were introduced this week providing another challenge for the coaching staff. Tristan Youd had a player of the week performance with his weaving runs dissecting the Maroochydore defence on a number of occasions. Well done U7’s.
U6s Match Report by Team Manager Rachael Griggs
The mighty U6 displayed some impressive passing this morning in Maleny up against Maroochydore. Slick passing meant all players crossed the try line and their defence efforts proved hard to break. Henry scoring player of the day with a “never give up” attitude. Well done Dragons.
