Women’s Rugby Union
The Canowindra-Cowra ladies had a win over Orange City 30-22 last Saturday. With Orange City only having 8 players we decided to match them. Within the first few minutes a player was injured so one of our ladies was rotated every quarter. Our ladies always showed great sportsmanship and we loved playing our City family.
Outstanding tackles from Monique in the back and a great run from Emarlee once she got the ball out on the wing.
Tries went to Shell x 3, Amy x 1, Betty x 1 and Emarlee x1. Points went to 3 Monique, 2 Betty, 1 Becky and players player went to Ash.
This week the ladies travel to Forbes and the men play in Yeoval.

The U7’s Pythons were off to an excellent start in their second Sunday of rugby. Our day resembled an excursion to the Zoo, we encountered Bulldogs, Emu’s and Redbacks. Across the board all were less discombobulated and more clinical in their approach. All showed a great improvement in their skills and awareness of field position. Their teamwork is also improving with many players looking to offload the ball. It was pleasing to see the lift in confidence
from Jack Nash making some genuine yards, both up the middle and around the flanks. James Morrow communicated well and made some inspirational darts. Jack Trengove showed the opposition a clean set of heals and linked up well with rest of the Pythons in attack. The boys that managed to get over the try line were Tommy Jobson with about 5 tries, Jack Nash got 2, Jack Trengove, James Morrow, Sam Markcrow and Lochie Nash all got one each for the day. All kids who would like to try rugby are most welcome to come up Friday afternoons at 4.30pm to training.
The U9’s had a great day of running rugby matching up against Kinross, Emus and the Millthorpe Mozzies. Clancy Hazelton sliced through the defence for some fantastic tries while Alex Rice did the hard yards up the middle with his bustling runs. Sam Breen stood out with his bruising defence. All in all the boys played very well and never gave up trying.
The U11s Pythons played Kinross first up, coach Ricey‘s instructions were to smash them and follow the game plan of 3 forwards pick and drive, then backs ball. Best and fairest for game 1 went to Cooper Williamsfor crunching tackles and leading the team in enthusiasm and Lachie Rice who scored 7 tries. Game 2 and 3’s standouts were Connor Watson and Hugh Nash for playing with no fear in attack and defence; and Cooper Breen and Toby Stephens who
started tackling low and hard. Jack Smyth and Marcus Wythes played well doing their usual, organising the team as the halves. Well done boys.
