THE Rocky Juniors have wound up for the Easter break with some fantastic games of football last weekend.
Friday night saw the battle of Brothers at Victoria Park with Brothers White v Blue taking place. In the Under 13 game, it was a game of two halves, with neither side able to score in the first half, with Brothers White defending five sets on their line.
The second half saw the White side take a 6-0 lead only for the Blue side to hit back bringing the score to 6-4, the White side then broke the Blue defence with a converted try to make it 12-4 with five minutes to go.
A mistake from the kick-off saw a great try to the Blue side out wide followed by an even better conversation to bring the score to 12-10.
Blue then started a big attacking raid only to drop the ball metres out. White were able to hold onto the ball and take the win.
Both sides deserve credit for the quality of the game. Brothers White were too strong in the Under 14 game while the Under 15 game was another great contest with the Blue side holding on in the last minute to secure a 6 point win.
Brothers Under 16 were too good for Norths with both sides missing Capra's players and Norths keep their momentum going in the Under 18 games with a nice win over Brothers.
At Emu Park, the Emu's had a night to forget. Rockhampton Tigers have really made a great start to the International competition taking a tight contest 10-8. Fitzroy's Sharks are really gelling well with a big win over the Emu's.
Emu Park played well taking down the Sharks in the Under 15 contest while the Under 18 game ended in a draw, which is the third draw this year in the Under 18 competition, showing that this age group can be won by any of the six sides.
Browne Park was the venue for the Norths and Yeppoon games Friday night and the Under 13 North's side seems to be getting better and better as the year progresses defeating last year’s premiers.
They were too strong for Yeppoon in the Under 14 game while the Knights Under 15 side continued the night with a strong win.
St Benedict's School held the only Saturday games With Cap Coast Brothers having a great day taking out the Under 13 game in a close affair, the Under 14 and 15 sides continued their strong form while their Under 18 side defeated a strong Gracemere side.
The competition now breaks for the school holidays.
On behalf of the RDJRL we want to wish all players, volunteers and their families a safe Easter and we will see everyone back playing the first weekend after the East School Holidays.
Just a reminder that the RDJRL Rhys Wesser Shield will be held on Friday, April 10 and Saturday April 11 in Rockhampton.
