Junior Rugby League

30th Apr 2024

On the Saturday Guyra hosted the Glen Innes Magpies in the ANZAC Round of football.
The Under 6’s started the day all showing eagerness to get on the footy field. Bradley Shortt used his pace to run down the sideline to the try line. Lane Cruickshank is getting more confident on the field and is running the ball well. This team is fun to watch.
Guyra’s Under 8’s had a high scoring game of football. Nayte Mayled played a great game of football getting himself two tries and a conversion. Jackson Atkin also crossed the try line three times. All the under 8s enjoy their footy and play well as a team.
The Guyra Junior League Tag Team every week are improving their skills. The girls had a fun game against Glen Innes. With a few team members away on the weekend Lulu Cruickshank had her first game of league tag. Lakia Cutmore managed to break through the defence and score two tries in the game.
The Under 10s came up against a strong Glen Innes team on Saturday. Guyra had players away for the holidays but still played some good football. Ashton Hutton received two points from the referee for his efforts.
Guyra’s Intermediate League Tag had to play with only nine players. The girls gave it all they had and played some great attacking football. Running the ball well down the sideline Ava Williams got a great try in the corner. The girls were unlucky on the day to lost 24 to 8.
The Senior League Tag girls were back this week playing some awesome attacking football. Both in the middle and on the edges, the girls took to the line with speed and commitment. Charlie Ward and Shelby Heagney linked up well in the middle and scored a great try under the posts. Stevie McElroy was reliable in defence and stopped many tries down the sideline. Amber Writer’s kicking is reliable and putting more points on the score board. This was a great game to watch, and the girls got this win 36 to 20.
 The last game of the day was the Under 16’s. Guyra let Glen Innes get out to a quick lead in the first 10 minutes which cost them in the end. The Guyra boys were all keen to score and were unlucky a couple of times for the tries not to be awarded. Hugo Brazier was strong in the middle hitting the line and breaking through. Jacob O’Kane and Lawrence O’Kane are fearless on the field in both attack and defence. This team work well as a team and play a great style of football. The boys were unlucky on the day with the final score being 32-24.
Guyra Junior League held a service on the day to commemorate the ANZACS. Both the Guyra and Glen Innes Clubs remember the ANZACS by laying a wreath and having a minute’s silence.
The club would like to thank Dean Heagney and Warren Tribe for bringing their Army Jeeps to the grounds and to Mel White and Scruff Grills from Beautiful Blooms Guyra for donating the wreaths.
This weekend the Guyra Super Spuds travel to Warialda.
