On a typical spring Sunday, (Mothers’ Day – great to see so many mums attending), the U12’s took to the pitch to play Barnes, eager for the kick off.

The match was close and both sides contested hard.

The first half went to Barnes with a score of 5 : 10.  Barnes scored two tries in the first fifteen minutes; the Eagles fought back to score a well earned try towards the end of the half.

In the second half, Barnes came out strong and scored two early tries. The Eagles showed great courage and determination, and fought back to score two well worked tries. The final score for the second half was 10 : 10.

The boys played well – they tackled, passed, mauled and rucked with a lot of enthusiasm. They should be proud of their performance – well done boys!
