Two teams will represent Guyra in this weekend’s Group 19 Junior Rugby League Grand Finals which will be held at the Guyra Sporting Complex this Saturday.
The Intermediate League Tag girls’ team got the job done, winning the Major Semi Final held in Bingara to go straight through to the Grand Final. The girls played very well against top placed Inverell in the heat, working as a team and encouraging all team members throughout the game. This strategy paid off, with Guyra winning the game 12 to 6.
The girls are very excited to play in their first ever Grand Final. This team has been training well and improving each week. The Club is very proud of you all and your coaches and they wish you all the very best with your game against Glen Innes.
The second team to make it through is the Under 16s. The boys played their hearts out in the heat of Bingara against Glen Innes in the Major Semi Final. Guyra suffered a few injuries and played with determination until full time only to be beaten 14-12.
The Under 16s had a second chance on Saturday and played Inverell in the final. The boys were all ready and warmed up ready to take the field only for an injury in the game prior to postpone the game. Due to daylight hours running out a decision was made to move the game from Rugby League Park to the UNE football fields where lights could be used.
The game kicked off at 4:20pm and Inverell came to a quick lead of 8 – nil. The Guyra boys kept their head high and got the score to 8-6 at half time. A tough and dedicated second half from Guyra was needed to stay in the game. Every player on the field gave it their all and with that Guyra came away with the win 24-18. The under 16s play Glen Innes in the Grand Final.
Guyra Junior Rugby League are very excited to be hosting the Group 19 Junior Rugby League Grand Final on Saturday and are very fortunate to have two Guyra teams playing.
The club invites the Guyra community to come up and watch our players and would love to see everyone in Guyra Footy attire or wearing the colours Blue, Black and White.
Let our players and coaches know how proud we are and hopefully we get to sing the song!!
The Intermediate League Tag game will kick off around 10am and the Under 16s will kick off around 3pm
“Play hard – play fair – Guyra is 100% behind you. Make yourselves proud and give it your all. Congratulations. Go the Super Spuds.”
