Gerry Allen Weekly Rugby Report
An Excellent Day!!!

Beach 2’s complete perfect round robin with 37-10 “w” over the barbs in the Gee Gage Cup. The game was well played as we rolled several players into the action in preparation for Sat! Even “Noodles” had a blinder as he stepped up to play for the shorthanded Barbs and scored BOTH their tries!

Beach 1’s An outstanding team effort as both forwards and backs honed various parts of their games in the 60-14 victory.The fantastic play was exemplified by the MacSween family, one back and one a forward. Mark scored the hat-trick in the first half and Ryan duplicated the feat in the second half! Brantford played tough right to the final whistle, which pushed us to not let up. Great to see so many fans jammed onto the sidelines(Jamie Reynolds among the crowd) as many players commented on the positive effect it had on their play!

Brian, Geoff and Huggy amongst others held a fundraiser at the Club last winter to assist Judah and on Sat, Judah attended our game to say thanks!. He is looking good and it is super to see this sort of respect and interaction within our rugby community.

Judah Campbell with Gord Young and Huggy at Beach 65-29 win over Stoney Creek. Continued good luck Judah!
