Apologies to the Under 12 boys for the 50 game plaque mix up that meant we didn’t have their plaques ready for the game last Sunday - Isaac Bartley (U12 Gold), and James Magiatzis & Jack Moston (U12 Blue). This week we have Harrison Teague (U13), Jay Lynch (U12 Gold) and Dean Perawiti (U12 Blue) celebrating their 50th games. Congratulations to all on your achievement!
