JUNIORS

What a wet soggy Saturday with both U6s and U12s games cancelled in Sawtell and Woopi, respectively.

The U8s headed to Coffs for two games in the wet and our U7s, U9s and U10s enjoyed their super wet, muddy games at home with each team putting on an awesome display of footy.

The soggy ground didn’t deter any of the teams with a flurry of tries in all games with our U10s enjoying their first win at home for the season with a 28-0 win over Kempsey.

Here’s hoping for clearer skies next Saturday with the Minis all off to Bowraville for a Gala Day and our U10s and U12s travelling away.

SENIORS

It was a very disappointing day at Coffs Harbour on Sunday when the Magpies played the Comets in three grades. 

Perhaps it was the wet weather or my return, as many have suggested, but the wheels are certainly rusty after so much promising form in the first round.

Over the three games the Magpies failed to score a point. 

  • Women’s League Tag losing 42-0 
  • Reserve Grade losing 54-0 
  • First Grade losing 96-0

Let us hope things turn out for the better for this Sunday’s game when the Bellingen Valley Magpies take on Woolgoolga in three grades at Bellingen Park.
